New Tools to Help Tell Your Nonprofit’s Financial Story

Nonprofit finance is complex, with layers and factors that don’t exist in the for-profit world. 

We need data and analysis tools that are relevant to our businesses and to our sector. 

GuideStar and Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) get that understanding and communicating your nonprofit’s financial story—the full picture of its financial health and priorities, and how that relates to those of your mission-driven peers—is just as important as articulating your vision and programs when talking with staff, board members, funders—indeed all your stakeholders.  


GuideStar Pro Now Includes Financial Analysis Tools

Recently, we added a Financial Trends Analysis to GuideStar Pro—at no additional expense to GuideStar Pro subscribers. This resource was developed in partnership with Nonprofit Finance Fund© (NFF) and applies NFF analysis to data hosted by GuideStar. It upgrades the Peer Comparison function from Financial SCAN to a Peer Analysis feature, which allows GuideStar Pro subscribers to compare up to five organizations across several business model indicators.
