“We now have the trifecta of charity review recognition -- GuideStar Platinum, BBB Accredited Charity and the “Give with Confidence” Seal from Charity Navigator. It’s a really great way to enter the giving season,” said Kristina Jones, CAP chief of philanthropy and CAP Foundation executive director.

The BBB Wise Giving Alliance (BBB WGA) is the nation’s only comprehensive charity evaluator, assisting donors in making sound giving decisions. Donors know they can trust a charity accredited by the BBB WGA. Its broad standards go beyond what the law requires and dive deeper than other charity monitoring organizations.

Thousands of charities have reports available to the public at Give.org.

“The public can be assured that every charity evaluation is completed with careful, objective analysis of charity information,” said Art Taylor, BBB Wise Giving Alliance president and CEO, “By achieving accreditation, CAP has earned public trust having demonstrated its commitment to sound governance, transparency and achieving its mission.”
