Recently the image of nonprofit organizations is being doubt through the media and political representatives not only in V4 countries. This situation can have very negative impact on their fundraising results. One of the tool to help organizations to work on their positive image is charity monitoring and granting of Seal of Approval. Association of Public Benefit Organizations Czech Republic (AVPO CR) has joined the International Association of Charity Monitoring Organizations (ICFO) more than three years ago. ICFO is the international association of national charity monitoring organizations and the worldwide network of ICFO members from 20 countries. It ensures that fundraising for charitable purpose is organized and performed in a satisfactory manner and that the administration of the collected funds is adequate. In the Czech Republic we have already 26 approved NGOs. Status of Seal of Approval helped these NGOs to increase their income from private donors by 15% in 2017. We believe it is very important to share the best practices among the V4 countries together within the ICFO network. Therefore we organize a conference focused on NGO credibility on May 24th, and ICFO annual meeting on May 25th, 2019 in Prague. Our goal is to have our colleagues from V4 countries to attend the conference day and ICFO annual meeting to share and discuss best practices. We will hold a specific workshop during the conference dealing with charity monitoring tool. This is a unique opportunity to share experiences not only from the Czech Republic but also from other member ICFO countries.
