The BBB Wise Giving Alliance helps donors make informed giving decisions, and advances high standards of conduct among charitable organizations. Our “Standards for Charitable Accountability” are the most rigorous of any charity review organization, and ours is the only review program that requires charities to respond in order to be evaluated.
Give to accountable charities – You decide on the causes and issues you want to support, but a BBB charity report will show whether your charity of choice meets our high standards for accountability, transparency, governance and more. Here is a list of national charities that meet BBB Wise Giving Alliance standards (many local BBBs also review regional and local charities).
Give to charities that make an impact – BBB Wise Giving Alliance is one of the founders of Charting Impact, a new organization that is helping charities and nonprofits create a common framework for reporting effectiveness. Supporters, donors, academic researchers, volunteers and the media are coming to recognize the Charting Impact Report as a valuable tool for assessing a charity’s impact on society.
Give through texting and social media – Social media makes information about societal needs easier than ever to find, and “text-to-give” makes donating a breeze. Learn more about how charities are using social media and mobile giving to support their causes.
