Transparency is especially important for charities. Customers and consumers don’t always need to know the inner workings of a business or company they utilize daily. For example, it most likely won’t affect sales if we found out that the Target higher-ups used their profits to go on a vacation. It’s their money, go for it. But a charity is vastly different. You get a promise that your money is going to the right places when you donate to a charity. That is why it is important that Good In Deed receives the 2021 Silver Seal of Transparency. Good In Deed has received the 2021 Silver Seal of Transparency from CandidDotOrg as part of the Guide Star program.
Candid is the culmination of a few different ideas. The most important idea is that we need to work together to make a difference. The world is filled with issues that we have the power to fix. There are also some problems that need a lot of work to fix. Unfortunately, that also means money is needed to fix those problems.
That brings us to the next idea that helped give way for Candid to become popular. There are a lot of different charities out there and that is fantastic. There are distinct groups of charities for different causes. But that also means it is a wonderful opportunity for scammers to get money for a promise to make a difference. However, those scammers don’t always follow through with the promises. Candid aims to help with the Guide Star program, being your guiding star to the charities that are keeping their promises.
Good In Deed
Good In Deed has always been focused on local charities. The goal has been to create a better world locally so that our charitable acts can grow. It is not too far-fetched to think that charitable deeds are infectious. Complete a good deed to ne person who is now in a more charitable mood and it just keeps passing on.
There are times when Good In Deed works on more widespread charitable acts as well. But how do you know that the money you donated to Good In Deed is going toward making a difference? Transparency. That is why it is so important that Good In Deed works to improve transparency and that is why the 2021 Silver Seal of Transparency is so important.
The 2021 Silver Seal of Transparency
What is the Silver Seal of Transparency? Candid has the Guide Star program which serves as a guiding star to charities. The idea is simple, help people donate to the right charities by providing them with a seal of approval from Guide Star. That seal represents the transparency of a charity.
That means you can find out where money is going after you’ve donated to that charity. Good In Deed is honored to receive the 2021 Silver Seal of Transparency. This means that Good In Deed has provided enough information to be considered a trustworthy charity. Of course, Good In Deed still has more work to do to get even better with transparency but we are on our way to the top seal of approval from Guide Star.
