GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency

Great news!

The Historic Clarksburg WV Cemetery Preservation Alliance just earned the 2018 Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information.

By sharing these metrics, we’re helping the sector move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess nonprofit progress.

We chose to display quantitative metrics such as

  • Number of New Donors
  • Number of Youth who volunteer/participate in community service
  • Number of groups brought together in a coalition/alliance/partnership

to represent how hard The Historic Clarksburg WV Cemetery Preservation Alliance is working toward achieving our mission.

We feel that it is important to share these metrics so as to showcase our involvement and commitment to community engagement.

We’re proud to use GuideStar Platinum to share our full and complete story with the world.

To reach the Platinum level, we added extensive information to our Nonprofit Profile: basic contact and organizational information; in-depth financial information; quantitative information about goals, strategies, and progress toward our mission.

We encourage other nonprofits to take advantage of GuideStar Platinum to share key metrics with the world and highlight the changes you’re making.
