NCPCV earns GuideStar’s Gold Seal of Transparency

The National Center for the Prevention of Community Violence (NCPCV) has earned a Gold Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations.

To earn the Gold Seal, NCPCV provided GuideStar with information about its goals, strategies, capabilities, achievements, and progress indicators. That information is accessible to the public through GuideStar at

“We are honored to earn this Gold Seal from GuideStar,” said Bobby Kipper NCPCV founder and executive director. “Since our founding in 2009, NCPCV has been dedicated to preventing violence by providing community-based resources and solutions for individuals of all ages, with an emphasis on anti-bullying and anti-violence programs. We take pride in letting our supporters know what we’re doing, about our accomplishments, and the goals we have for the future. The Gold Seal from GuideStar supports this and makes our information easily accessible from a trusted resource. We hope it will help future donors join us so we can continue the good work we do to help keep communities and schools safe.”

NCPCV has a successful history of building and providing solutions to prevent and reduce violence through a number of key initiatives, including national, state, and local policies and training about bullying prevention, gang reduction, dating and domestic violence prevention, children’s gun safety, and community civility.

NCPCV is on a mission to improve the quality of life for all citizens. With its K-12 GreenZone program, it has empowered thousands of students across the nation to behave civilly at school and at home and has given them tools to effectively regulate their behaviors and interactions with others.

In its most recent initiative, NCPCV has teamed up with Voice to add GreenZone to the comprehensive ProText My School program.

ProText My School is automated, intelligent conversational technology that allows students, parents, and staff to safely and anonymously report bullying and threats of violence directly to school officials via a school-specific number for text messaging or the web. Students will learn about GreenZone behavior, and then can use ProText My School to anonymously report behaviors outside of the GreenZone to school officials. Based on national best practices and protocols, NCPCV will also support creation of multidisciplinary threat-assessment response teams, called CARE teams, at every school that adopts ProText My School.

Currently, NCPCV is seeking an exclusive national sponsor to bring ProText My School to every certified K-12 school in the nation for free. For more information, visit
