YWS Achieves GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency


The Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary achieved the Platinum GuideStar 2018 Nonprofit Profile level, which is the highest level of transparency they award.

At the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary, we believe that the people who support us deserve to know how we are spending your money. All of our required government reports are posted on our GuideStar profile, along with a great deal of information that is not required by law, but we feel is our responsibility to disclose.

GuideStar is the world’s largest source of information about nonprofit organizations and a leader in advancing transparency in the nonprofit sector. This level demonstrates our deep commitment to nonprofit transparency and accountability. 

The Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The word "Yellowstone" in our name doesn't mean that we receive any funding from the National Park Service. We are entirely funded through donations, private grants, visitor fees, and gift shop sales.
