Reach for the Stars: Achieving Stellar Charity Ratings

Reach for the Stars: Achieving Stellar Charity Ratings

Charitable organizations are being rated, reviewed, and ranked by charity watchdog organizations that gather information about your organization from Form 990s, annual reports, audited financial statements and your organization’s own website. How does your organization rank? Join us to learn steps on improving your nonprofit’s ratings, as well as taking control of the information that is being distributed about your organization.

Who Should Attend: Individuals who are new to managing, volunteering on boards, or providing financial services for nonprofit organizations are encouraged to attend.

Learning Objectives:
1. An overview of the primary watchdog organizations and the criteria they use to evaluate nonprofits.
2. Steps your charitable organization can take now to improve its charity profile rating.
3. Resources your charitable organization can use to help communicate and highlight its impact in the community.

Participants will earn 1.0 CPE credit in Specialized Knowledge.

To receive credit, attendees must respond to three out of the four poll questions asked during the program.

Once registered, you will automatically receive access to the webcast recording and, if you qualified for CPE, have the ability to download your certificate.
