APTA achieved 2020 Guidestar Gold Seal of Transparency
Namaskaram🙏🙏🙏. APTA organization achieved 2020 Guidestar Gold Seal of Transparency. Please click above link for details👆. Kudos to our Board, Executive and Extended leadership team. Any success comes with discipline, meticulous planning and execution. My heartfelt thanks to Shri Kiran Palla Gaaru (Board Chair) and all Board Directors who worked with Executive team in every step of the way. I would like to thank entire executive team and 400+ Extended Leadership Team. APTA is moving in right direction with all your love and support towards community and organization.
Guidestar is the organization the ranks 11,000 Non Profit Organizations (https://www.guidestar.org/) annually with a 2.4 million global NPO database. In 2019, we were ranked at Platinum seal of transparency which is a pinnacle of all and in 2020, we just achieved GOLD SEAL which is by far the top position in our community service segment. By achieving gold status, we are the only organization with back to back gold and in couple of days, you will see that we will be at 2020 platinum level. The rankings showcase our organizational goals (bronze level certification), financial discipline (silver level certification), program outreach/mission (gold level certification) and metrics & measurement (platinum level certification)
Why this is important?
Our organization with a 12 year old legacy needs to be locally embraced for the benefit of next generation. By certifying the organization with Guidestar or Charity navigator, our credibility will be high and this opens avenues for so many organizations to partner with us. Our moral responsibility is to create a platform for our next generation so they can reap tremendous benefits like volunteer opportunities, local body recognition, government grant outreach etc…
The goal is Platinum
By having a goal to achieve platinum, we will be the ONE & ONLY community organization with fast achieved back-to-back platinum seals.
Everyone embrace the achievement and I request all to include the Gold seal (for now) in formal communication.
APTA Leadership Team🙏🙏🙏
