Garden City, NY (PRWEB) July 08, 2015
The Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) Foundation is proud to announce that they have met the charity accountability standards necessary in order to earn accreditation from the Education and Research Foundation of the Better Business Bureau Serving Metro NY.
“Garnering accreditation by the BBB is a great testament to our organization and our focus on integrity,” said NCPD Foundation Chairman Eric Blumencranz. “We have worked hard to build and maintain the highest standards of non-profit accountability as a commitment to the donors and community we serve.”
The Better Business Bureau’s 20 Standards for Charity Accountability address governance, financial management and oversight, accuracy and transparency in fundraising solicitations, cause marketing, donor privacy, and self-evaluation and reporting to a charity’s board on performance. This accreditation reinforces the NCPD Foundation’s resolve to remain a trustworthy and transparent organization that supports its mission of providing financial assistance to the Nassau County Police Department.
Since its inception in 2008, the NCPD Foundation has raised over $5 million dollars to purchase equipment, support community programs and initiatives run by the NCPD, as well as help build a new police academy for the men and women of the NCPD. The Foundation will continue to support the NCPD by helping them provide safety and an improved quality of life in our communities through excellence in policing.
