AMAR U.S. is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the GuideStar Exchange Gold participation level, a leading symbol of transparency and accountability and the highest level attainable from GuideStar USA Inc., the premier source of non-profit information in the US.
The Gold level demonstrates our deep commitment to nonprofit transparency and accountability, requiring AMAR U.S. to provide a comprehensive account of our mission, activities and accomplishments by completing every required field of the nonprofit report page on www.guidestar.org.
AMAR has always been proud of our stringent financial and project management controls to ensure that every dollar is accounted for, as detailed in our Accountability Statement, and we are delighted to share this wealth of up-to-date information about our work with our supporters and beneficiaries and with GuideStar’s online audience of nonprofits, grantmakers, individual donors, and the media.
We are proud of our record of integrity and reliability, and above all of the efficiency of the all-local AMAR model which allows us to achieve for cents what others achieve for dollars. As then Vice Chief of Staff of the US Army, General Peter Chiarelli, stated in 2012:
“I think the thing that is probably the most important is that what AMAR built was sustainable – what we were trying to build was unsustainable. Everything was auditable. The Special Inspector General for Iraqi Reconstruction said that it was the best spent $2 million that they had seen.”
