Why are nonprofits judged on their overhead costs as opposed to the results they create for society? The reason may be more practical than philosophical: charity impact data simply doesn’t exist in a standardized format. What if we could change that? 

GuideStar, the nation’s largest source of nonprofit data, and Mission Measurement, a global leader in outcomes measurement, are working together to tackle this most difficult of problems.
