Transparency at VISIONEERS
Even though there is no standardized publishing rules for non-profit organisations, we are convinced that transparency is a core criterion for trustworthy social engagement. As a primarilyvoluntary organization, we orientate ourselves around the ten rules of transparency, as outlined in the initiative "Transparente Zivilgesellschaft". Its main goal is to show where organisations source their financial funding, how it is used and who is making the decisions about it.
With these ten pieces of information you can get an overview of civil society organisations independent of theirlegal form, size and activity.
