Great news! United Way of Southern Cameron County just earned the 2018 Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. By sharing these metrics, we’re helping the sector move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess nonprofit progress. We chose to display quantitative metrics such as the nearly $5 million in Earned Income Credits brought back to local families by our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program to show how hard United Way of Southern Cameron County is working toward achieving our mission.
We’re proud to use GuideStar Platinum to share our full and complete story with the world. To reach the Platinum level, we added extensive information to our Nonprofit Profile: basic contact and organizational information; in-depth financial information; and quantitative information about goals,strategies, and progress toward our mission.
We encourage other nonprofits to take advantage of GuideStar Platinum to share key metrics with the world and highlight the changes you’re making. Updating is free. To learn more about GuideStar Platinum, go to www.guidestar.org/platinum.
