Charity Evaluator Groups Recognize PWNA
Today we have good news to share: PWNA recently received our newest recognition from several well-respected groups that evaluate nonprofits, and we are excited to share these honors with you.
PWNA is now a Platinum GuideStar Exchange Member.
The GuideStar Exchange is a network for voluntary exchange of nonprofit information. Annually, this information is used by nearly 7 million individual, corporate and foundation donors. GuideStar offers Bronze, Silver, Gold and now Platinum membership levels. In our seven years as an Exchange member, PWNA held Gold status for several years, embracing maximum financial transparency to donors. PWNA recently achieved Platinum status by adding annual results metrics to our profile, conveying our focus on measuring progress and results. This allows donors such as you a way to compare our key results year over year, and a more concrete way to understand our impact, rather than evaluating solely on financial ratios.
PWNA is a 2016 Top-Rated Nonprofit, our 7th consecutive annual award.
As a result of solid customer service and programs effectively aligned with the needs of our reservation partners, PWNA has earned a 2016 Top-Rated Nonprofit award. This rating is based on independent reviews about working with us, as posted on the Great Nonprofits (GNP) website by our partners, donors, suppliers and corporate or nonprofit collaborators. Monthly, 360,000 donors read Great Nonprofits reviews.
PWNA is a 2016 CFC-participating charity, our 6th consecutive year of approval.
Did you know only 1 percent of the 1.5 million charities in the U.S. are approved to participate in federal workplace giving through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), and that PWNA is one of them? The CFC is the largest workplace giving campaign in the U.S., including all federal employees and the military. To participate in the CFC, PWNA undergoes an annual application process, certification of services provided to each community, and a three-stage approval by Independent Charities of America, a charity federation and the federal Office of Personnel Management in Washington, D.C. Pledges for the 2016 CFC will begin this November. Our CFC charity code is 95225, and we are listed this year in the CFC catalog under our education program name, AIEF.
Our staff, board members and volunteers are passionate about supporting our Native American partners’ community-led initiatives to achieve a better quality of life. We are proud to have achieved these ratings, along with our continuing BBB-accreditation, to help share our story with the world. We will be displaying these acknowledgements on our website at www.nativepartnership.org and hope to see you there.
