“In today’s environment of intense media and regulatory scrutiny of the nonprofit sector, it is important for charities to distinguish themselves as organizations that are committed to transparent and accountable practices”, said Mechele Agbayani Mills, President and CEO of BBB Serving Central East Texas. “BBB Charity Information Service can play a vital role in today’s nonprofit sector by establishing a framework of trust between donors and nonprofit organizations in the same way the BBB brings buyers and sellers together.”
BBB reports on over 10,000 charitable organizations and is the oldest charity evaluator in the country. Over five million consumers looked to the BBB System to inquire about a nonprofit in 2012.
