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).

Diversity notes from the nonprofit
We are working to promote a variety within our society and board, however board nominations usually come from within our membership. In order to broaden the diversity of age, race, gender, socioeconomic status, etc. we are conducting a variety of outreach opportunities to diversify our membership, thus providing a broader pool from which to recruit a more diverse board, committees, and volunteers.
