Nonprofit Newsletter July 2019

I’m not sure if anyone else feels this way but the month of June flew by so fast and the only thing, I can remember is how hot, hot, hot it got.  If June is an example of what this summer is going to bring, we’re really in for it folks, but in the meantime, I’d like to share with you something about the Better Business Bureau in this month’s newsletter.  So, sit back relax in your air-conditioned office or wherever you are and here we go…

This month’s featured nonprofit is: The Better Business Bureau
The Better Business Bureau is a nonprofit business supported organization that sets and upholds high standards for fair and honest business behaviors.

The history of the Better Business Bureau is still being written as it’s changing daily in North America, however the goal to help people find businesses, brands, and charities that they can trust remains the same. It was established in the early 1900s by a group of corporate advertising executives to correct advertising abuses.  Coca-Cola, Ford, and Whirlpool were amongst the leaders.  In 1912 the Association of Advertising Clubs of America broaden the task to find truth in advertising.  The fight then was, as it is now, is to make known alleged misrepresentations and eliminating abuses. Creating advertising codes and standards to help advertisers regulate themselves.  Better Business Bureau was the name selected in 1916 and has lasted through today.
