Overview

Self-reported by organization

The goal of BAEF is two-fold:  1) to supplement funding for programs which are already supported by public financing at a basic level but which can be substantially improved by additional private sector financing; and 2) to finance programs that might not receive funding for traditional sources, such as the district budget or state aid.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
