Real Alternatives is proud to announce that it has again earned GuideStar’s 2021 Gold Seal of Transparency!

GuideStar profiles give donors detailed information about an organization, aiding them in their search for trusted organizations. Less than five percent of the 1.8 million non-profits registered with GuideStar are recognized with a Gold Seal.

A Gold seal on a profile denotes a higher level of transparency, including comprehensive details about finances, Board of Directors, staff and overall demographics. A Gold Seal status is the leading symbol of non-profit transparency and accountability.

To earn this seal, Real Alternatives went above and beyond to provide up-to-date information that explains and contextualizes the IRS data viewable on Real Alternatives GuideStar profile. Those interested can find metrics on Real Alternatives operations like populations served, program descriptions, and financial information, as well as information about our goals, vision, capacity levels, and direct community impact.

GuideStar is a great resource for both nonprofits sharing information and donors researching organizations. The GuideStar platform is easy to use and allows us to create open transparency of our organization. This transparency enables donors to make better decisions and know that money spent by Real Alternatives makes a real difference in the lives of women and babies throughout America.
