GuideStar, a service that specializes in reporting non-profit companies, has awarded Marbridge Foundation their 2019 Platinum Seal of Transparency.
The Platinum Seal of Transparency means Marbridge provides key information to the public showing all business practices are up-to-date and gives insight into the work that is done.
“Marbridge has been practicing high ethical standards when it comes to accounting, fundraising, licensing standards, and Board of Trustee participation for many years, so fitting the high standards that Guidestar sets for their platinum seal was part of our already established transparency,” said Becca McPherson, VP of Development. “Donors expect a high level of leadership and ethics when trusting a non-profit with their donations, so Marbridge receiving this seal just reiterates the level of care and pride in our mission we already know we have.”
Hard-work, high standards, and the attention to detail is something Marbridge has always strived for in both direct care and support services. The Platinum status verifies the information and work from the past and future will be of the highest level.
“This seal demonstrates that Marbridge is an organization that is focused on quantitatively measuring our progress and results while giving potential funders information they need to trust in our mission,” Becca continued. “We’ve worked hard in making our mission one of the best in the nation and this seal demonstrates our innovation and striving to always improve quality of care and business ethics year over year.”
The Platinum Seal of Transparency will also allow Marbridge to apply for top level funding only available to non-profits of this status.
“Marbridge holds itself to the highest ethical standards in our operations,” said Sonora Ruelas, Development Associate. “The public is free to see this information on Guidestar to help them understand Marbridge better as a worthy foundation with a mission they can get behind.”
