The Fort Collins Symphony (FCS), a regional non-profit arts organization, has been designated as a Better Business Bureau Serving Northern Colorado and Wyoming as a BBB Accredited Charity. The FCS met all 20 BBB requirements for charity accountability. These standards were developed to foster confidence in reputable charitable organizations and assist the public in making sound gift-giving decisions.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by the Better Business Bureau,” said Alexandra Lee, FCS Board President. “BBB Charity Accreditation demonstrates our commitment to excellence and assures the public that their donations to the FCS are being handled responsibly and ethically.”

Only charities that meet the standards are designated as a BBB Accredited Charity. An organization must be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, the BBB required the FCS to provide its latest audited financial statements, IRS Form 990, and a copy of the annual report, which were subjected to a vigorous and thorough review.
