GoLOCAL has received ED Certificate from the NGOsource
One of the key partners of Ukrainian communities, donor organizations and businesses in regional socio-economic development, GoLOCAL, has received an american certificate from NGOsource, which specializes in assessing organizations for compliance with various aspects of the legislation. He confirms that the organization is a reliable partner and has been tested for compliance with the requirements for charitable organizations accepted in the United States.
“We have been working with donors and international organizations for 5 years. But received this status for the first time. ED Certificate opens up many opportunities for cooperation with American partners and more. It’s very important for Ukrainian organizations to show themselves as reliable and transparent partners. We are very grateful to the Luminate Foundation, the global impact investment philanthropic organization created by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, and personally to the fund's director for Central and Eastern Europe, Olena Boitsun, for giving us this authoritative status,” commented Igor Komendo, Director NGO GoLOCAL.
NGOsource works with a variety of donor organizations, including independent, corporate, community and family foundations. Obtaining the ED Certificate greatly simplifies cooperation with US charitable foundations and provides new partnership opportunities. After all, many American donors demand that their grantees strictly adhere to US standards and requirements.
