We’re pleased to announce that The Cambodia Academy has earned a 2019 platinum seal of transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations. Each year, millions of people use GuideStar information to make decisions about nonprofits and the work they do. Donors explore charities and issues they want to support. GuideStar strives to provide the highest-quality, most complete nonprofit information available.
From the beginning, the board of the school has been comprised of volunteers who believe in the mission of providing education and hope to some of Cambodia’s poorest children. In addition to providing financial support, the board takes no compensation for their work, and aside from nominal IT and software expenses, all donations are passed through to the benefit of the children at the school.
“We’re very happy to have a platinum seal of transparency from GuideStar,” said John Barrett, founder and director. “As the school grows and we attract new donors, we believe it’s important to maintain our openness and accountability to our growing base of supporters. We know that people have many choices when contributing to charities, and we are grateful for our generous donors who enable us to continue our work in Cambodia.”
Founded in 1994, GuideStar has helped drive the nonprofit transparency revolution. Over the years, GuideStar expanded the database to include all tax-exempt organizations registered with IRS; the database currently comprises profiles of 2.7 million organizations. Populated with data from the IRS, nonprofits, and partners, these profiles are available through the GuideStar website and more than 200 other websites and applications, including Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Fidelity Charitable. In 2018, more than 10 million people used GuideStar data to make decisions about nonprofits and the work they do.
