Lutheran Services Carolinas earns Platinum Seal of Transparency for 2023

By January 26, 2024No Comments

Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC) has once again earned two Platinum Seals — one for Lutheran Family Services and another for Lutheran Services for the Aging — by adding information to its Nonprofit Profile on Candid (formerly GuideStar). This is the highest seal that a nonprofit can earn.

These seals indicate LSC’s commitment to transparency and help to expand funding opportunities for the organization. LSC first earned the seal in 2022.

Now LSC’s community members as well as 10+ million Candid users can find in-depth financial information about the organization.

According to Candid, the Seals of Transparency are meant to build on each other. A nonprofit earns the Bronze Seal by providing basic information―mission, leadership team and board names, basic program information, etc. Once an organization has earned a Bronze Seal, it can share financial information to earn Silver; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and vision to earn Gold; and, finally, metrics to show the progress made toward its mission to earn the highest seal, Platinum.
