For Donors

Welcome to the Giving Common where you can find in-depth information about nonprofit organizations across the Commonwealth.

At the Giving Common you can view the mission, history, programs, impact, business practices, financial statements and more for nonprofit organizations that interest you.  Here you will not find a rating system that tells you how to view these organizations.  Instead, our goal is to create organizational transparency that empowers donors to make informed, strategic philanthropic decisions.

To assist you in reviewing Giving Common organizational profiles, we have provided some questions you may want to consider.  Should you have additional questions for these organizations, you can also contact the nonprofit through the contact information included in the profile.

Are you interested in learning more about an organization that you don’t see listed on the site?  Please help us serve you better by contacting the organization directly and requesting that they complete a profile.  Alternatively, the Giving Common team can invite the organization to complete a profile if you prefer to remain anonymous.

For more information on how to give to local nonprofits through the Giving Common please visit “Online Giving for Donors” or, funders can learn more about the Giving Common here.  Additional information on resources for donors available from the Boston Foundation can be found here.

The Giving Common team is here to help.  You can reach us at or call us at 617-338-1623.
