Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Earns Charities Review Council 'Meets All Standards' Seal

ST. PAUL, Minn., July 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, St. Paul, MN announces that it has been awarded the Charities Review Council "Meets All Standards" Seal indicating that it meets all sixteen of its Accountability Standards.

Nonprofit organizations such as the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) earn the Seal by voluntarily participating in the Council's online Accountability Wizard which addresses a nonprofit organization's performance in four critical areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity and Fundraising. By participating, nonprofit organizations like MOFAS can demonstrate responsibility, integrity and transparency to their constituents.

MOFAS is now listed as a reviewed organization on the online Giving Guide of the Council's Smart Givers Network,, and in the Council's Smart Giver newsletter, distributed to more than 18,000 subscribers in Minnesota. The Council's Smart Givers Network is the source of unbiased information where the giving public can investigate an organization's mission statement and programs to better understand what their money supports and determine whether it meets widely accepted standards.

"We are proud to be acknowledged for our commitment to rigorous stewardship and high standards for accountability and transparency, especially in today's economy, when charities are competing more than ever for public support," says Executive Director Sara Messelt. "The Charities Review Council is like the 'Consumer Reports' of philanthropy which can help empower donors to make more informed and thoughtful giving decisions," states Messelt.

MOFAS was founded in 1998 by former First Lady Susan Carlson, and is the only statewide source for information, resources and support on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. The mission of MOFAS is to eliminate disability caused by alcohol consumption during pregnancy and to improve the life for those living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders throughout Minnesota.
