SURVIVORS Commits to Transparency

SOTIAdmin Transparency

Great news! Survivors of Torture, International is one of the first organizations to receive the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. GuideStar recently launched the Platinum participation level to help nonprofits celebrate their results for free! By sharing these metrics, we help the sector move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess nonprofit progress.


We chose to display quantitative metrics such as number of clients served, percentage of clients who report making progress towards their education, housing, and employment goals, and percentage of clients who report a reduction in their mental health symptoms and an increase in their ability to be productive in their daily lives to represent how hard SURVIVORS is working toward achieving our mission, something we couldn’t do without you.


We’re proud to use GuideStar Platinum to share our full and complete story with the world. We achieved Platinum by completing GuideStar’s preceding participation levels of Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each provided stakeholders with increasingly detailed organizational information ranging from basic contact information to programmatic information.
