Real Alternatives - A Recipient of the PANO Seal of Excellence

Real Alternatives

Real Alternatives is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing compassionate, supportive medical and social resources to women experiencing crisis pregnancies. Headquartered in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Real Alternatives has received the Seal of Excellence from the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations (PANO).

As part of its mission to support and advance the nonprofit sector of Pennsylvania, PANO operates an accreditation program designed to assess the quality of nonprofit operations. Known as the Standards for Excellence program, the initiative sets benchmarks with the aim of helping nonprofits improve operational efficiency while strengthening their relationships with the wider community. In addition to promoting values such as honesty, integrity, respect, and responsibility, PANO’s Standards of Excellence initiative also promotes regulatory compliance and operational improvement, guiding nonprofits in efforts to minimize risk, streamline decision-making processes, improve fundraising efforts, and engender trust throughout the community.
To receive PANO’s Seal of Excellence signifying accreditation under the Standards of Excellence, Pennsylvania nonprofits must successfully undergo a review process involving a jury of fellow charitable organizations. Real Alternatives was one of the first nonprofits to receive the Seal of Excellence when PANO first created the program in 2002, and has since received re-accreditation three times.
