GuideStar Gold

GuideStar LogoThe Kennedy Krieger Foundation is proud to have achieved the Guidestar Gold designation in keeping with a standard of public transparency.

Guidestar, which connects donors and organizations with information on programs and finances of IRS-registered nonprofits, recently revamped its GuideStar Exchange program to include different levels of participation (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum). 

As part of the program, any sized nonprofit can provide information that is supplemental to the IRS information already accessible at Guidestar.org. Nonprofit transparency and information sharing with donors is critical.

To achieve its Gold ranking, the Kennedy Krieger Foundation had to provide basic information plus up-to-date audited financial statements and impact/effectiveness information about the programs and services it supports.
