Success Stories and Testimonials

We're proud to share what our partners are saying about our work with them.

“It is a positive process for The Arc Greater Twin Cities to be a part of and an honor to be recognized as “Meets Standards®“! We appreciate the important work you do for our community.”

– Kim Keprios CEO, The Arc Greater Twin Cities

“Standards for nonprofits are so important, particulary to help direct your charitable dollars to a reputable organization. We’re thrilled that Vail Place continues to live up to the high Standards of Charities Review Council.”

– Vicky Couillard, Executive Director, Vail Place

“We ended up with $10K and a great relationship with a new corporate partner that is bringing us other benefits. I also had an individual donor, new, on the opposite side of the metro area, with no relation to us in any way, make a $500 gift at the end of 2015. Rather than donate to national causes, she looked for something more homegrown, that had undergone a vetting process.”

– Tracy Maki, Executive Director, Valley Outreach MN

“Over the years, we’ve been very proud and very honored to be able to say that we meet the standards of accountability as outlined by Charities Review Council and we’re very eager to complete the review process again this year. Meeting Charities Review Council’s standards is truly something that our organization values and believes in.”

– David Egan, Co-Executive Director of Susan G. Komen MN
