The BBB Wise Giving Alliance helps donors make informed giving decisions and promotes high standards of conduct among organizations that solicit contributions from the public. It produces reports about national charities, evaluating them against comprehensive Standards for Charity Accountability, and publishes a magazine, theWise Giving Guide, three times a year.
BBB WGA does not rank charities but rather seeks to assist donors in making informed judgments about those that solicit their support.
The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) received the "Best in America" award for achieving the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness:
"The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence is awarded to the members of Independent Charities of America and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness.
These standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world.
Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal."
The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the highest rating an organization can receive. According to their website, Charity Navigator has become the nation's largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. In its quest to help donors, their team of professional analysts has examined tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents. They have used this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess over 7,000 of America's best-known and some lesser known, but worthy, charities.
Specifically, Charity Navigator's rating system examines two broad areas of a charity's performance; their Financial Health and their Accountability & Transparency. Their ratings show givers how efficiently they believe a charity will use their support today, how well it has sustained its programs and services over time and their level of commitment to good governance, best practices and openness with information.
The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) received the "Editor's Choice" award for providing the highest quality cancer information on the Internet:
"This award is is given by the Editors at OncoLink to the providers of the highest quality cancer information on the Internet.

On a regular basis, the Editors at OncoLink will choose a website which is exemplary of this philosophy, and serves as a model for others."
