Why does the St Jude Children's Research Hospital receive only a Bronze rating?
I always believed them to be the finest in the world.
Good Morning Terese,
Thank you for contacting GuideStar.
From its inception, GuideStar has never used a rating or ranking system to judge nonprofits or the auditing groups they employ. GuideStar's goal as a neutral third party is to help donors make their own judgments based on the public information provided on the Web site. Organizations can, however, earn a GuideStar Level of Transparency Seal for their organization’s GuideStar nonprofit Profile pages. This seal indicates that the nonprofit has updated their nonprofit Profile to a certain level, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum; to show their organization's commitment to transparency and communicate directly with stakeholders through GuideStar.
Hope this information helps.
