Have Your Charity Evaluated

For Nationally Soliciting Charities

If your organization is a national charity that solicits nationwide and wishes to be the subject of a BBB Wise Giving Alliance report that will appear on, you are in the right place. Our reports summarize basic facts about a charity's governance, programs, finances, fund raising and operations and show whether or not the subject charity meets the comprehensive Standards for Charity Accountability.

You will be asked to provide a few facts about your organization. You will also be asked to select a password-this is the password you will use to gain access to the online questionnaire once you are provided access to it. The BBB Wise Giving Alliance staff will review this enrollment form, verify the information, and send you an email within about five business days that will enable you to begin using the online charity questionnaire.

If you are with a national charity seeking access to the National Charity Enrollment Form described above, click here to begin the enrollment process.

For Locally and Regionally Soliciting Charities

Charities whose solicitation is limited to their local area or region may be evaluated by the BBB serving that area.  Nearly half of the 112 BBBs currently have local charity review programs.  If you are interested in being evaluated, but your organization is not national in its scope of fund raising, click here to find contact information for your BBB.  In addition, you can check a list of BBBs that have local charity review programs.
