Seal of Transparency
With their Seal of Transparency, GuideStar’s mission is to revolutionize philanthropy by providing information that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving.
The Orlando Health Foundation has achieved a gold seal for not only providing basic information about the organization including financials, but also sharing our mission, strategies and progress with our goals and fundraising efforts. Achieving such a status helps to build trust in our donors by outwardly sharing information that will be useful when making decisions on what organizations to support. It also shows that we embrace high standards of transparency and accountability while remaining true to our mission to improve the health and quality of life of the individuals and communities we serve.
