Strengthen your Organization. Showcase your Excellence.
Why all the hype?
Charities and nonprofits join the Standards program to bolster trust in their organization, showcase the Accreditation Trustmark to supporters, and to be seen as leaders. Accredited organizations also tell us that the Standards Program has identified and reduced organization risk, improved board governance practises, and fostered a strong work force.
With donor expectations for accountability and transparency from charitable organizations on the rise, Imagine Canada’s accreditation program builds confidence among donors and prospective donors. The Stop is proud to be counted among organizations who have met these standards of excellence.
