(Frequently Asked Questions)

Question:   What is the Charities Review Council seal of approval?


ODHC has voluntarily participated in the CRC review and met all of the Accountability Standards, thus earning the Meets Standards seal.  The accountability standards consists of 27 standards, which address a nonprofit's performance in four critical areas: public disclosure, governance, financial activity and fundraising.  The standards have evolved over the Council's 66 years, with broad participation from Minnesota's nonprofit and philanthropic communities, to reflect reasonable public expectations of nonprofits.  To find out more about the Charities Review Council, visit www.smartgivers.org.
