Developmental Enrichment Centers Reaches GuideStar Platinum
Allows Donors to Focus on Progress and Results
Developmental Enrichment Centers (DEC) has earned the Platinum GuideStar Nonprofit Profile Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. By sharing metrics that highlight progress DEC is making toward its mission, the organization is helping donors move beyond simplistic ways of nonprofit evaluation such as overhead ratios.
To reach the Platinum level, DEC added extensive information to its Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar: basic contact and organizational information; in-depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and capabilities; and quantitative information about results and progress toward its mission. By taking the time to provide this information, DEC has demonstrated its commitment to transparency and to giving donors and funders meaningful data to evaluate DEC.
