Warriors 4 Kids Inc. Reaches GuideStar Platinum
Allows Donors to Focus on Progress and Results
Melbourne Beach, Florida – Warriors 4 Kids Inc. today earned the Platinum GuideStar Nonprofit
Profile Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. By sharing metrics that highlight progress Warriors 4 Kids 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
Kellie Bowling, “we are excited to convey our organization’s results in a user-friendly and highly visual manner. By updating our GuideStar Nonprofit Profile to the Platinum level, 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 reach the Platinum level, Warriors 4 Kids Inc. added extensive information to its Nonprofit
Profile on GuideStar: basic 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. By taking the time to provide this information, Warriors 4 Kids has demonstrated its commitment to transparency and to giving donors and funders meaningful data to evaluate Warriors 4 Kids.

Sharing metrics with the public and our potential donors is important to us. We want our donors to know that their contributions are going to those truly in need, rather than into the pockets of management. We are fully volunteer run, and have no plans to change that.

“I encourage you to visit our profile on GuideStar to see what we’re all about,”
added Kellie Bowling. “We’re thrilled that our GuideStar Platinum Nonprofit Profile and its
associated benefits help us better communicate our organization’s exciting initiatives at a global scale.”
