As a donor, I am looking for Guidestar's "grade" on Wild Earth Guardians and other organizations. I can see the 990 form, but do not see Guidestar's rating. Am I missing something? Where do I look for your overall rating?
Thanks for using GuideStar.
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 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.
If a Seal is not visible on a Nonprofit Profile it's because that nonprofit has yet to self-report additional information about their mission separate from what is available on Forms 990.
Was this helpful?
Thanks, this is somewhat helpful, but I would prefer to see that GuideStar actually rate and review organizations regularly, such as CharityWatch does.
I'm very familiar with Nonprofit Profiles. If you have questions while reviewing one or would like clarity on information, feel free to respond to this thread.
Wild Earth Guardians is one charity I would like to have more information about.
I did a search and nothing came up. Do you have an EIN?
You have listed Wild Earth Guardians and their 990 Form on your website, but I wanted a general assessment.
Please share an EIN to make certain we are reviewing the same Nonprofit Profile. Thanks.
I do not have the EIN, but here is the website:
WildEarth Guardians - Official Site
This is the organization's Nonprofit Profile.
It appears this organization has been Pub 78 verified as of July 2018 and has Forms 990s for 2016 currently posted to their Profile. This organization is in good standing with the IRS. The reason this organization does not have a seal is they have yet to self-report new information for 2018.
Thanks, somewhat helpful, but prefer an actual rating from GuideStar. May check another charity watch group to see what they say.
