Please note, it generally takes the Council 3–4 weeks to complete the initial review. Action items are reviewed on a first-come-first-served basis, and wait time is currently around 1–2 weeks.

The Smart Giver Newsletter is published twice a year and includes the Giving Guide, a list of strong, accountable and trustworthy nonprofit organizations, that have demonstrated a commitment to transparency by voluntarily participating in the Council’s online Accountability Wizard® review process.

The deadline for inclusion in the fall 2017 Smart Giver Newsletter is September 1. See below for the requirements for inclusion in the upcoming Smart Giver Newsletter.

To be listed as a Meets Standards® organization:
  • Your organization must have a current, non-expired, Accountability Wizard® review
  • Have no pending action items; and
  • Have been notified by the Council that you Meet Standards®.
To be listed as a Review in Progress:
