Field Ready receives BBB Accredited Charity status
After an extensive review and auditing process, Field Ready has received the coveted Accredited Charity status carried out by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The organization's Wise Giving Alliance (WGA) is a national charity monitoring organization in the US.
The WGA adopted a set of twenty "Standards for Charity Accountability" which were developed in conjunction with the Better Business Bureau, professional accounting organizations, charitable organizations, and foundations that fund grants. No funds are exchanged to undergo the accreditation process (i.e., it is free).
The WGA explains that these standards were developed “to assist donors in making sound giving decisions and to foster public confidence in charitable organizations. The standards seek to encourage fair and honest solicitation practices, to promote ethical conduct by charitable organizations and to advance support of philanthropy.”
The standards set a baseline for ethical governance, responsible fundraising, and transparency of financial operations. The 20 standards shown below have all been met by Field Ready.
