Benevilla gains BBB listing

Accredited charity status for 2022

Posted

West Valley nonprofit Benevilla was issued the Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity Status in November 2021.

The listing showcases Benevilla’s continuing commitment to nonprofit transparency, strong financial health and its commitment to accountability. The BBB accreditation is a highly visible accountability tool that helps inform donors, assist charities in establishing their commitment to ethical practices and encourage greater confidence in giving. Attaining the accreditation verifies Benevilla exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in their area of work.

“We continually work very hard to publicly promote our progress with our mission and vision in our community,” said Joanne Thomson, Benevilla president and CEO. “It’s all about transparency. As a BBB participant, we welcome the opportunity to share our up-to-date financial information about our work in the community, which hopefully provides our donors more confidence in supporting our mission.” 

To achieve the BBB accreditation Benevilla met 20 stringent standards divided into five categories, including governance and oversight, measuring effectiveness, finances, fundraising and informational materials. Some of these standards include board oversight, effectiveness policies, fundraising expenses, audit reports, accurate expense reporting, budgeting plan, annual reporting, website disclosures, donor privacy and cause marketing disclosures.

The overview of Benevilla and its financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency is available on the BBB website at bbb.org/charity-reviews/pacific-southwest/benevilla-in-surprise-az-83004724 as well as on the Charity Navigator website at charitynavigator.org.

Benevilla achieved the Charity Navigator 4-star rating as well in July 2021.
