For Local Charities
The Charity Review Program of your Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Alaska, Oregon & Western Washington exists to provide factual information to potential donors to assist them in making educated giving choices.
The information provided by charities and non-profit organizations is evaluated and compared against twenty voluntary standards of charitable accountability. The results of the evaluations are made available to the public through our automated phone system and our Web site, www.bbb.org as well as in our BBB Yellow Pages Directories.
If you are with a local charity seeking to particpate in BBB Charity Review program, please apply online or download and complete the Charity Review Questionnaire. For more information and sample documents, please visit our local resource page.
For National Charities
If your organization is a national charity that solicits nationwide and wishes to be the subject of an Alliance report that will appear on give.org, you are in the right place. Our reports summarize basic facts about a charity's governance, programs, finances, fund raising and operations and show whether or not the subject charity meets the comprehensive Standards for Charity Accountability.
You will be asked to provide a few facts about your organization. You will also be asked to select a password-this is the password you will use to gain access to the online questionnaire once you are provided access to it. The Alliance staff will review this enrollment form, verify the information, and send you an email within about five business days that will enable you to begin using the online charity questionnaire.
