Sojourner Receives Charities Award Seal
Sojourner has once again received the Charities Review Council’s Meets Standards® seal, a visual marker on nonprofit strength. Nonprofit organizations earn the Meets Standards® seal by voluntarily participating in Charities Review Council’s Accountability Wizard® review process. The Accountability Wizard® is a time-tested tool, elevated by nationally recognized capacity building practitioners and philanthropic thought leaders. The Accountability Wizard® is based on Charities Review Council’s 25 Accountability Standards®, a balance of nonprofit sector promising practices, public expectations, and legal requirements, representing the shared expectations between donors and nonprofits.
The review process examined four key areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity, and Fundraising. Sojourner’s practices, policies and procedures have aligned with the Charities Review Council’s accepted standards of accountability and achieved the Meets Standards® seal. The Charities Award Seal signifies that Sojourner demonstrates responsibility, integrity and transparency to donors as well as the general public.
