We're THRILLED to announce that MORE is now a Charities Review Council Meets Standards® organization!

Nonprofit organizations, such as MORE, earn the Meets Standards® seal by voluntarily participating in Charities Review Council’s Accountability Wizard® review process. The only web-based product of its kind, the Accountability Wizard® is a time-tested tool, elevated by nationally recognized capacity building practitioners and philanthropic thought leaders.

A Message from MORE's Executive Director, Cathy Rucci: 
“It is especially important that donors know they can trust MORE as a responsible and transparent organization that offers the highest of integrity to donors as well as the general public.”

The Accountability Wizard® is based on Charities Review Council’s 25 Accountability Standards®, a balance of nonprofit sector promising practices, public expectations, and legal requirements, representing the shared expectations between donors and nonprofits. The review process examined four key areas:

  • Public Disclosure
  • Governance
  • Financial Activity
  • Fundraising

As a result, MORE has aligned its practices, policies and procedures to widely accepted standards of accountability, leading us to greater strength, efficacy and to the achievement of the Meets Standards® seal. By participating in the Accountability Wizard® review process, MORE demonstrates responsibility, integrity and transparency to donors as well as the general public.
