The Climate Trust is proud to share that we are one of the first organizations to receive the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. GuideStar recently launched the Platinum participation level to help nonprofits celebrate their results for free. By sharing our metrics, we help the sector move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess nonprofit progress.
We chose to display quantitative metrics such as total tons of greenhouse gas reduced, the number of newsletter list subscribers and press releases distributed, as well as the number of website visitors, to represent how diligently The Climate Trust is working toward achieving our mission.
We are proud to use GuideStar Platinum to share our full and complete story with the world. We achieved Platinum by completing GuideStar’s preceding participation levels of Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each provided stakeholders with increasingly detailed organizational information ranging from basic contact information to programmatic information.
