Charity Monitoring Worldwide

BBB Wise Giving Alliance is proud to be part of an international association of charity monitoring organizations, ICFO, with members representing 20 countries from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. While each country's context is unique, we are united by our approach to charity monitoring – based on well-rounded charity standards that promote good governance, effectiveness, strong finances, integrity, and transparency.

On March 23rd, our Spanish counterpart, Fundación Lealtad, hosted an international conference to raise awareness about our combined work strengthening the nonprofit sector and building public confidence in trustworthy charities. More than 700 people from 28 countries attended the conference either in-person or virtually. We invite you to watch the English-translated version of the event here. If you are specifically interested in a conversation around different approaches to charity monitoring between Art Taylor, President and CEO of BBB Wise Giving Alliance, and Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator, you will find their discussion (moderated by Salvador Garcia-Atance, President and Co-Founder of Fundacion Lealtad) at hour 1:44.
