PAF Achieves GuideStar’s Platinum Status for 2018

Earning this Independent Seal of Transparency Allows Donors to Focus on Progress and Results

Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) earned the 2018 Platinum GuideStar Nonprofit Profile Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information.

By sharing metrics that highlight progress PAF is making toward its mission, the organization is helping donors better evaluate and compare nonprofits by providing tangible insight into the impact of the organization’s services and interventions.

“This is the second consecutive year that PAF has received this platinum distinction and it directly aligns with our long-held belief in being able to demonstrate the impact of our work both qualitatively and quantitatively,” said Beth Moore, EVP of Corporate Communications. “We are excited to have this opportunity to share our organization’s results in a user-friendly and highly visual manner and honored to be a GuideStar Platinum recipient. To reach this level, PAF included extensive information on its GuideStar Profile – including in-depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and capabilities; and quantitative information about results and progress toward its mission” added Moore.
