Gold Fields

The Gold level is all about asking for qualitative information about your organization. These questions are from Charting Impact, an initiative of the BBB Wise Giving Alliance, Independent Sector, and GuideStar to develop a common format for nonprofits to report on their effectiveness. To earn the Gold Level of Participation you must also complete the Bronze and Silver Seal requirements.

  • Issue - What is your organization aiming to accomplish?
  • Strategies - What are your strategies for making this happen?
  • Capabilities - What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?
  • Indicators - How will your organization know if you are making progress?
  • Progress - What have you accomplished so far and what's next?
