STEM Generation today earned a 2019 Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. Less than 0.5% of nonprofits on GuideStar earn the Platinum Seal. By sharing metrics that highlight progress STEM Generation is making toward its mission, the organization is helping donors move beyond simplistic ways of nonprofit evaluation such as overhead ratios.
"In accordance with our long-held belief in being transparent about our work,” said Eric Jing, the current President and founder of STEM Generation, “we are excited to convey our organization’s results in a user-friendly and highly visual manner. By earning a Platinum Seal, we can now easily share a wealth of up-to-date organizational metrics with our supporters as well as GuideStar's immense online audience, which includes donors, grantmakers, our peers, and the media."
To earn the Platinum award, STEM Generation reported extensive validated information to GuideStar: contact and organizational information; in-depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and capabilities; and quantitative information about results and progress toward its mission. STEM Generation has truly demonstrated its commitment to transparency and to giving donors and funders meaningful data to evaluate nonprofit performance.
“Metrics are extremely important to us and we love sharing our work and impact with our donors and supporters,” said Eric.
"I encourage you to visit our Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar to see what we're all about," added Eric. “We’re thrilled that our Platinum Seal of Transparency and the associated benefits help us better communicate our organization’s exciting initiatives at a global scale."
