2019 Platinum Seal of Transparency


The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank just earned a 2019 Platinum Seal by adding information to our Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar. By sharing these important metrics, we’re helping the sector move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess nonprofit progress.


We chose to display quantitative information such as volunteer hours, summer meals provided through our Kids on the Go program, and the number of food insecure people helped by our network of 162 community partners to represent how hard the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank is working toward achieving our mission.


We’re proud to have earned a Platinum Seal to share our full and complete story with the

world. To reach the highest level of transparency, we added extensive information to our

Nonprofit Profile: basic information about our missions, programs, leadership, etc.; in-depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and vision,

and the progress we are making toward our mission.


Plus, we’ve provided fresh information to 200+ charitable websites and applications that

use GuideStar data, such as AmazonSmile, Facebook, and Network for Good.
