Cape & Islands Veterans Outreach Center Earns Distinction

Filed Under: Non Profit News

For the second consecutive year in the organization’s 39-year history, the Cape and Islands Veterans Outreach Center (CIVOC) has earned the 2022 Platinum Seal of Transparency, which is the highest level of recognition offered by the newly combined GuideStar and Foundation Center (now known as CANDID).

The outreach center achieved this designation by publicly sharing detailed metrics about funding received as well as the progress it is making toward its mission of serving the needs of military veterans and their families across Cape Cod and the Islands.

“Simply put, receiving this important designation means that we are a professional, donor-centric organization,” said Executive Director Jim Seymour. “For our donors and our grantors, they can feel confident that CIVOC continues to be completely transparent across the board to both.”

The Platinum Seal of Transparency is the top honor given by CANDID, indicating that CIVOC has provided key information to its nonprofit profile, which is available to the public and displays the organization’s measurable impact.
