Charities Review Council

 Charities Review CouncilFamilyMeans is approved by the Charity Review Council.

The Council's mission is simple: to provide tools for Minnesota donors to make informed giving decisions that help build a stronger nonprofit sector. The Council pursues this mission by:

  • Maintaining Accountability Standards and applying them through reviews;
  • Providing information that will help donors make informed charitable giving decisions;
  • Encouraging and assisting accountability in the charitable sector.

Charities that meet all of the Council’s Accountability Standards are granted the use of the Council’s “Meets Standards” seal. The seal provides a public, concise, and accessible indicator of a charity’s commitment to accountable and ethical practices. To date, more than 200 charities have demonstrated their commitment to openness by voluntarily participating in these public reviews.
