Guidestar seal

GuideStar honored Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children with a prestigious award, the Gold participation level, on Friday, November 7, 2014.

"I have found through the advanced search on GuideStar that only 1 in 500 charities has a gold star on GuideStar," OBHC President Tony Kennedy said. "There are only 30 of all the charities in Oklahoma that are at this level."

GuideStar is a public charity that collects, organizes, and presents the information you want in an easy-to-understand format while remaining neutral. The organization provides nonprofit information to a broad audience at no cost to those users.

The Gold participation level, which OBHC received, is the highest level of transparency an organization can reach. GuideStar has a database of 1.9 million charities. More thatn 18,000 charities in Oklahoma are registered with GuideStar.

Some of the benefits in achieving this level is a Gold participation widget and logo to proudly display on OBHC's website.

The mission of GuideStar is to revolutionize philanthropy by providing information that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving.
