December is the top month for charitable contributions in the United States. For many nonprofits, including the Worldwide Fistula Fund, roughly one-third of annual giving occurs in the last month of the year. During this time, we especially want to make our organization as transparent as possible so our donors can see that the money they donate helps achieve real and meaningful good.
To that end, the Worldwide Fistula Fund has made its financials available on Guidestar, where we are a 5-star member and have earned the GuideStar Exchange Seal of transparency. The WFF has also been honored with a prestigious 2012 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations. The Top-Rated award was based on the large number of positive reviews the Worldwide Fistula Fund has received this year.
We encourage all of our supporters to dig into our website to learn about our goals and how we spend our donation dollars. And please feel free to contact the folks in our office at any time with questions about the Danja Fistula Center and new initiatives. We love hearing from you.
