The Arc of San Diego & Arc San Diego Foundation Earn Platinum Seal of Transparency

Platinum Seal of Transparency


The Arc of San Diego and Arc San Diego Foundation earned Candid’s Platinum Seal of Transparency. Candid is the world's largest source of information on nonprofits that collects and provides information on every IRS-registered nonprofit organization.

Being awarded the Platinum Seal of Transparency is a testament to the transparency of The Arc of San Diego and Arc San Diego Foundation. In order for a nonprofit to earn a Seal, Candid verifies the information the nonprofit shares with the public using several metrics: finances, goals, program information, strategies, capabilities, achievements, progress indicators, people involved, and the difference the nonprofit is making in the community. Less than 1% of all nonprofit organizations in the United States earn the Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest Seal Candid awards.

We are proud to receive the Platinum Seal of Transparency from Candid, and we want to make sure you have the progress updates you need to support our work with trust and confidence.
