CHAPS has Guidestar Silver ranking.
Chaps is now designated Silver Rating by Guidestar. We are looking at moving up to a aGold rating but at present it would require us to spend significant funds on an accounting audit. Should we find a volunteer who can audit our very simple books we will revisit the question. In the mean time those funds will be spent in support of family planning.
What we do
