Amplify the Voice of Nonprofits This Year

As the new year approaches and we step back to reflect upon 2017, I hope you are as inspired as I am by the good works we have seen in the nonprofit sector. As individual organizations working at the local, state, national, and international levels, and as a collective entity, nonprofits have been at the heart of social change in 2017. You have shared in their successes and challenges, and we hope you will join us in making sure their voices are heard in 2018 and beyond. 

Celebrate the Giving Season with GuideStar

With the giving season ahead of us and the holidays fast approaching, this time of year has a different meaning for each of us. At its core, the giving season is the culmination of what has been building within us all year: a desire to articulate and act upon the value we receive that in turn enriches our work, our relationships, and our lives.

How Foundations Use the New GuideStar Nonprofit Profile

Imagine providing  all nonprofits
with the opportunity to share their organizations’ full and complete story with the world, at no cost to them. The team at GuideStar is committed to this vision, and the recent rollout of the newly redesigned GuideStar Nonprofit Profiles is an exciting step toward better achieving this goal. Since the profiles’ launch, foundations have been sharing their insights into how they are using them. We wanted to share some of our learnings and welcome your comments as well.  If you’re a funder, we’d love to know: how are you leveraging the new GuideStar Nonprofit Profiles?

Transparency – One Way To Do It

One of the key tenets of GuideStar’s mission is to advance transparency. Through our quarterly Impact Calls, we seek to lead by example, providing a forum through which to report on programmatic and operational metrics in a timely, interactive, and inclusive manner, and engage our stakeholders in a broader discussion of our strategy and priorities.
