Description of Workshop:
Charity Review® is a program of BBB Foundation of Upstate New York, dedicated to providing a rigorous evaluation in relation to holistic standards that address finances, effectiveness reporting, and honesty in fundraising appeals, donor privacy and charity governance for charitable organizations in our region. Charities are asked to participate as a result of public inquiry. The results are published in their annual Upstate New York Giving Guide.

The BBB Foundation of Upstate New York aims to educate those working with publicly soliciting 501c(3) organizations about what BBB looks for in applying its 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.

Don’t run the risk of not meeting these standards! Join us for this exciting workshop and learn more about what BBB is looking for.
