Earlier this week, NumFOCUS earned our first-ever Silver Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, an independent organization which classifies nonprofit organizations based on multiple metrics pertaining to transparency and accountability. Fewer than 5% of US-based nonprofits have received this type of recognition.
“This respected acknowledgment comes as we prepare to enter our year-end fundraising season,” said Terry Foor, NumFOCUS Director of Development. “NumFOCUS has always strived to use our financial resources effectively and efficiently. We thank GuideStar for the chance to demonstrate our commitment to operating transparently so that our stakeholders, including our Sponsored and Affiliated Projects, may hold us accountable to our mission.”
NumFOCUS will continue working with GuideStar in the coming months to further formalize our organization’s accountability and performance indicators. If you’d like to support NumFOCUS with the confidence that we will maximize the impact of your gift, please click here.
