Dream Foundation recently received the Independent Charities of America (ICA) Seal of Excellence. The award goes to members of ICA and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. These standards include those required by the U.S. government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world. Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the U.S. today, estimates conclude that fewer than 50,000 or five percent, meet or exceed these standards. Of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this seal.
Dream Foundation is thrilled to be included in the ABC special IMAGINATION: It Starts With You. The program has begun to air in national markets so check your local listings or call your local ABC affiliate to find out when it airs in your area.
