Standards CMYK02Charities Review Council

Minnesota Fathers & Families recently went through a review with the Charities Review Council, and we are glad to announce that MFFN meets all twenty-seven of the Council’s Accountability Standards and was awarded the “Meets Standards” seal.

The Charity Review Council reviews nonprofit organizations in four areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity, and Fundraising. The review works to ensure that an organization’s operations, structure and policies meet widely accepted standards for accountability and transparency. The awarded “Meets Standards” seal shows our commitment to accountable and ethical practices. MFFN is now listed as a reviewed organization on the Council’s Smart Givers Network and the Smart Giver newsletter distributed to households, businesses and nonprofits. View our profile on the Charity Review Council’s website

Minnesota Fathers & Families Network

For many organizations, advocates, fathers, family members, and policy makers, there is a growing understanding that healthy fatherhood is not an end unto itself. Rather, healthy fathers are one component of a bigger picture — the promotion of healthy children, families, and communities. MFFN works toward this end by promoting policies and practices that support healthy father-child relationships and families. Your donation helps us to continue this work which helps everyone in our community. Learn more about our current projects you can support.
