The Accountability Wizard® is an online capacity-building tool for nonprofits to build and demonstrate their internal strength.

Based on the Accountability Standards®, the Accountability Wizard® is a risk-free learning tool and assessment for nonprofit organizations. The only web-based product of its kind, the Accountability Wizard® nonprofit review process leads organizations to greater strength, efficacy, and to the achievement of the Meets Standards® Seal.

The Meets Standards® Seal is a visual marker of nonprofit strength and a great way for nonprofits to differentiate themselves, communicating their internal strength and impact to supporters.

Those earning the Meets Standards® Seal are listed on our website, in our semi-annual Smart Giver Newsletter, celebrated on social media, and recommended to donors via phone and email inquiries.
