    To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

    To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s board of directors, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.

    To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.

    To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

    To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
