Conflict of Interest Policy:

Such a policy protects the organization, and by extension those it serves, when it is considering entering into a transaction that may benefit the private interest of an officer or director of the organization. Charities are not required to share their conflict of interest policies with the public. Although we can not evaluate the substance of its policy, we can tell you if the charity has one in place based on the information it reports on its Form 990.

If the charity does not have a Conflict of Interest policy, then we deduct 4 points from its Accountability and Transparency score.
