CLUES Receives Charities Review Council Seal as Marker of Strength and Transparency

CLUES is pleased to announce our receipt of the Charities Review Council “Meets Standards® Seal”! We are proud to be one of fewer than 339 nonprofits committed to upholding transparency and excellence.

CLUES earns the Meets Standards® seal by voluntarily participating in Charities Review Council’s Accountability Wizard® review process. The only web-based product of its kind, the Accountability Wizard® is a time-tested tool, elevated by nationally recognized capacity building practitioners and philanthropic thought leaders. The Accountability Wizard® is based on Charities Review Council’s 25 Accountability Standards®, a balance of nonprofit sector promising practices, public expectations, and legal requirements, representing the shared expectations between donors and nonprofits. 

The review process examined four key areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity, and Fundraising. As a result, CLUES has aligned its practices, policies and procedures to widely accepted standards of accountability, leading us to greater strength, efficacy and to the achievement of the Meets Standards® seal. By participating in the Accountability Wizard® review process, CLUES demonstrates responsibility, integrity and transparency to donors as well as the general public. 

The Meets Standards® seal is a tangible demonstration of our commitment to the people who invest in our organization. CLUES is excited to have taken this step to further build a culture of trust with our community of supporters, donors, volunteers, funders, and partners.
