Mobile Giving Foundation and BBB Wise Giving Alliance have created the BBB Mobile Giving Foundation, to grow mobile giving, strengthen industry standards, and reinforce nonprofit acceptance of mobile giving. Over the next two years, Alliance staff will work with MGF to evaluate its clients and to help those that are not yet in compliance with the Alliance’s 20 standards. National charities will be evaluated by the Alliance and local charities will be evaluated by one of the 106 local BBBs across the U.S. New charities will be able to participate in the BBB Mobile Giving Alliance by following the acceptance procedures for both organizations.
Internal Revenue Service released the final Form 990 for 2011. Most of the significant changes apply to tax-exempt organizations with joint ventures and investment partnerships, foreign activities or investments, and hospitals.
