Aug 7, 2019

Arlington, VA (Aug. 7, 2019) – BBB Wise Giving Alliance (BBB’s Give.org) and Global Impact, a leader in growing global philanthropy, will work together to promote transparency and high standards of conduct among U.S. charities working internationally.

Global Impact finds great value in BBB’s Give.org evaluation process and the information it provides to help donors make informed giving decisions. The organization will promote the evaluation to its alliance of international charity partners. “At Global Impact, we know it is important for donors to have tools that help make strategic giving decisions. BBB’s Give.org is a useful tool and we look forward to promoting evaluation within our network,” said Scott Jackson, president and CEO of Global Impact.

“This new opportunity will help raise awareness about how critical accountability and vetting are for donors, charities and companies alike,” said H. Art Taylor, BBB’s Give.org president and CEO. The 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability cover charity governance, results reporting, finances, fundraising, appeal accuracy and other issues. There is no charge to charities for the evaluation, and reports are available free of charge on Give.org.
