OMI EARNS CHARITIES REVIEW COUNCIL’S “MEETS STANDARDS” SEAL
OMI is honored to have earned the Charities Review Council’s Meets Standards seal! To be awarded the right to use the seal, OMI voluntarily participated in the Council’s review process based on 25 Accountability Standards. The review required OMI to answer or provide documentation relating to more than 120 questions encompassing four key areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity and Fundraising.
OMI submitted policies, procedures, financial records and outcomes measurement records for thorough examination.
OMI is proud of its Meets Standards status and will use the seal to demonstrate its strength as a nonprofit. The Charities Review Council seal is the Council’s stamp of approval and demonstrates that OMI is responsible, has integrity and is transparent. Donors, as well as the general public, can rely on the Meet’s Standards seal for assurance of OMI’s quality.
Regan Stommes, OMI’s CEO, notes that, “Donors can give with confidence knowing that organizations, like OMI, have passed a rigorous process of standards review that promotes and expects complete transparency”.
