SOCA-FBC just earned the 2018 Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. GuideStar is an important part of the nonprofit community – providing resources to nonprofits, and information to foundations and funding resources.

Our GuideStar Platinum profile includes financial performance, animal saving and adoption performance, annual goals and objectives, and metrics that show the progress we’re making toward those goals.

GuideStar profiles show up on AmazonSmile, Facebook, and Network for Good, to name a few. These profiles help people decide how to assign their purchasing dollars to help worthy causes. Profiles and certification also affect how a number of animal rescue foundations prioritize grants.
