Navy SEAL Museum Earns Platinum GuideStar Nonprofit Seal of Transparency
Fort Pierce, Fla. – June 7, 2021 – The National Navy SEAL Museum has just earned the Platinum GuideStar Nonprofit Profile Seal of Transparency. This is the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, the world’s leading source of nonprofit information.
“In compliance with our fundamental commitment to operating transparently in our work,” said Rick Kaiser, Navy SEAL Museum Chief Operating Officer, “we are pleased to share these results in a highly visible manner. Updating our GuideStar Nonprofit Profile to the Platinum level has given us the ability to easily share a wealth of current organizational metrics with our supporters–and we can convey these metrics with GuideStar’s broad online audience, including grantmakers, donors, our colleagues, and the media.”
To reach this desired Platinum level, the Museum added extensive information to its Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar. Beyond basic contact and organizational information, in-depth financial information; qualitative information about strategies, goals, and capabilities; and quantitative information about progress and results toward its mission were required. In committing the time to this process, the Museum has demonstrated its dedication to transparency, thereby giving donors meaningful data to evaluate the Museum and its mission.
“By sharing metrics that highlight progress the Navy SEAL Museum is making toward its mission, we are giving our donors the ability to see much more in depth than by simplistic methods of typical nonprofit evaluation,” added Kaiser. “I encourage all of our supporters to visit our profile on GuideStar to better understand our mission and makeup. We are grateful that our GuideStar Platinum Nonprofit Profile helps us better communicate the Museum’s important initiatives at a global scale.”
