The accountability and transparency metrics account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating.
“It’s important our donors know that we are using their contributions wisely in pursuit of our mission to provide safety, shelter and support to survivors of domestic and sexual violence,” said The Women’s Center Executive Director Angela Mancuso.
