Noontime Concerts Receives Charity Accreditation

Awarded by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance

San Francisco, CA, September 21, 2018

Noontime Concerts recently received charity accreditation from the Better Business Bureau‘s Wise Giving Alliance, a national charity monitoring organization.  BBB’s Give.org evaluates charities, at no charge, using the 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability to help donors verify the trustworthiness of soliciting organizations and to strengthen charity practices.

The BBB Charity Accreditation seal carries a lot of meaning for both donors and charities.  For donors, the appearance of the seal in a charity’s mailings, on its website, in newspaper and magazine advertisements or elsewhere is a clear and concise sign to show that the charity meets BBB Wise Giving Alliance’s Standards for Charity Accountability.

Donors may not know, though, that for charities, putting the seal in their materials is the culmination of a demanding process. Before charities can even apply to use the seal, they must undergo evaluation by BBB, the nation’s most experienced charity evaluator.  And the evaluation process involves rigorous scrutiny of a charity’s governance, effectiveness, finances and solicitations, and informational materials.

“Displaying the BBB Charity Accreditation seal fosters trust and donor confidence in Noontime Concerts as a viable and financially transparent charity,” says Robin Wirthlin, Executive Director of Noontime Concerts.

Noontime Concerts offers weekly classical music performances—free to the community—every Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. at Old St. Mary’s Cathedral, SF.  For more details, visit www.noontimeconcerts.org.
