For Nonprofits

Thank you for your interest in the Giving Common.  Our goal is to enable nonprofit organizations to tell your story in a transparent and accurate way.  This includes allowing you to showcase your best practices, full financial picture, programs and impact.  There are already over 1,000 nonprofit organizations involved and we are growing every day.

We connect with donors, institutional funders and other stakeholders to highlight the importance of strategic, data-driven philanthropy including utilizing the Giving Common to inform their research and philanthropic giving.  We hope that you will help us promote the Giving Common to your donors and funders.
