The United Way of Greater Moncton and Southeastern New Brunswick is among the first charities in Canada to receive accreditation through Imagine Canada’s standards program.
Designed to strengthen public confidence in the charitable and non-profit sector, the program is among the first of its kind at a national level. It offers accreditation to charities and non-profit organizations that can demonstrate excellence in five key areas:
- Board governance
- Financial accountability and transparency
- Ethical fundraising
- Staff management
- Volunteer involvement
“We are proud to be among the first Canadian charities to receive this accreditation. We are committed to our community, and committed to maintaining and setting an example by adhering to the highest standards of the charitable sector,” says United Way GMSENB president Jim Jones.
