Certification Program

Making a donation to a nonprofit is more than a just a goodwill contribution. It is a donor's investment in the betterment of the community and the positive growth of society. Private citizens, corporations, and foundations aim for a positive return on their community investment just as they would for any private venture.
Our unique certification program goes beyond evaluating an organization's financial health or its programming goals to include the oft forgotten human elements. As such, the cornerstone of a Coalition Certification is the quality of the staff-client interaction and overall client experience. With 1.5 million nonprofits competing for funding, certifying your program demonstrates your action-based commitment to use critical donor dollars for providing top-rate services.
