This past month, Lifewater International was recognized as a GuideStar Platinum charity. This means you can rest even easier knowing we are a trustworthy nonprofit making a real difference.
GuideStar USA is the world’s largest information service focusing on nonprofit organizations. GuideStar strives to strengthen the nonprofit sector by providing better data for better decision-making that ultimately helps to create a better world. It provides current, authoritative data, including tax information that allows for transparency.
How does GuideStar Platinum status make Lifewater a trustworthy nonprofit?
Platinum is the highest level of recognition achievable through GuideStar. Because we have consistently shared the progress, results and reporting systems for our programs with GuideStar, Lifewater was awarded with the Platinum Seal of Transparency.
