As we head into our 25th year as an official non-profit, we are proud to announce that CFTEA has been nationally recognized for our organization’s community impact and transparency! Learn about our organization by exploring our non-profit profile and data on Candid.
The GuideStar/Candid Seals of Transparency were introduced in 2013 to provide visible recognition when a nonprofit shares information. More than 75,000 non-profit organizations in the United States have earned Seals, making the Guidestar/Candid Seal the most widely adopted symbol of transparency in the U.S. social sector.
The type of information a nonprofit provides determines which Seal it earns. The levels are:
- Bronze—basic information so your organization can be found
- Silver—program information and brand details
- Gold—financials and people information
- Platinum—goals and the difference you’re making
A nonprofit must earn Bronze before it can earn Silver, Silver before it can earn Gold, and Gold before it can earn Platinum.
