National Women’s History Museum Awarded “Best In America” Seal of Approval
Alexandria, VA – August 8, 2014 – National Women’s History Museum is pleased to have been awarded the “Best In America” Seal of Approval by the Independent Charities of America. The Seal is awarded to charities that have, following rigorous independent review, certified, documented, and demonstrated on an annual basis their success meeting the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness.
The award standards meet the US Government’s requirements for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, which is among the world’s most exclusive fund drives. Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded the Seal.
