The underlying database provides information about local nonprofits, including financial, governance and programmatic details, allowing nonprofits the opportunity to tell their story and illustrate their work and best practices. All participating nonprofits were required to complete a GivingEdge profile. You can view any participating nonprofits’ profile by going to givingedge.guidestar.org or click on the GivingEdge link on their donation page.
