Orphan Outreach has secured the level of Gold Seal for non-profit transparency by Candid’s GuideStar program. A Gold Seal status is the leading symbol of non-profit transparency and accountability, presented by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of non-profit information. Each year, millions of people use GuideStar information to make decisions about nonprofits and the work they do. Donors explore charities and issues they want to support. Nonprofit leaders benchmark their organizations against their peers. Funders research grantees. We strive to provide the highest-quality, most complete nonprofit information available.
Less than five percent of non-profits registered with GuideStar have been recognized with a Gold Seal. More than 8 million visitors per year rely on GuideStar for their charitable giving and to learn about non-profits.
