Goodwill Industries of the Berkshires and So. Vermont, Inc. is proud to have been awarded the 2023 GuideStar Platinum Seal for Transparency from Candid*!

Guidestar profiles give donors detailed information about an organization, aiding them in their search for trusted organizations. A Platinum seal on a profile denotes a higher level of transparency, including comprehensive details about finances, Board of Directors, staff and overall demographics.

*Candid was formed in 2019, when GuideStar joined forces with the Foundation Center. The combined organization is committed to using research, collaboration and training to connect nonprofits, foundations, and individuals
