Re: How to distinguish reputable rescue's from others
Questions to ask -
Are you recognized as a NFP?
Where can I review your consititution and by laws?
How often does your board meet?
Do you have business meetings open to membership?
Are the board meeting minutes available to read?
May I have a copy of your IRS 990?
What opportunities to volunteer do you have?
What screening process to you use for these positions?
Do you have volunteer meetings where I can meet other volunteers?
Pick some of these. The 990 will be pretty interesting, so might the board minutes but what is going to be as interesting is their response when you ask about these things.
