Kids for Kids is awarded Superstar Status!
We are delighted to announce that Kids for Kids has been awarded Superstar status as a GlobalGiving charity in the USA!
GlobalGiving performs rigorous due diligence on every organisation in the GlobalGiving community in order to ensure they are performing charitable work in a transparent and accountable manner, and that they meet local requirements for registration with their local government.
This includes collecting and reviewing documentation for every organisation, including legal documents, financial records, program materials, and lists of senior staff and board members, in order to validate the organisation that is running the project as described. They also evaluate the organisation’s capacity to implement activities, and communicate about its work, and research the organisation’s relationship with previous funders. Finally, they ensure that the organisation is compliant with anti-terror guidelines and international guidelines for philanthropy.
The award also means Kids for Kids have been ratified through a crowdsourced process, by successfully raising over $5,000 from 40 donors in a specific time period. The ‘crowd’ also provide feedback about projects on GlobalGiving through reviews on GreatNonprofits, and by collecting community stories.
In 2016, Kids for Kids raised a total of $42,391 on Global Giving to fund our vital work in Darfur. $10,185 of this was raised through Global Giving match-funding and gift-card redemptions. We are delighted to be partnering with them.
