Make-A-Wish Foundation Receives BBB Charity seal
The Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois recently awarded the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois the use of the BBB Charity seal. Having met the 20 BBB Charity Standards for a number of years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois is one of the inaugural charities to participate in the seal program recently put in place by the Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois.
The BBB Wise Giving Alliance Standards for Charity Accountability were developed to assist donors in making sound giving decisions and to foster public confidence in charitable organizations. The seal indicates to those seeking information about charities that those accredited have sound financial and business practices. Charities are reviewed on how they govern their organization, on the ways they spend their money, on the truthfulness of their representations, and on their willingness to disclose basic information to the public.
"We are pleased to be able to display the Better Business Bureau's Charity Seal to further reassure our donors about our vigilance in being the most effective, efficient organization we can be," said Daryl Thomann, Chief Operating Officer of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois.
The Better Business Bureau is a private, nonprofit organization that provides services and programs to assist consumers and businesses to advance marketplace trust.
