When: Monday, February 24, 2014, 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. EST
Why: The nonprofit sector is incredibly important. The nonprofit sector contributes more than $800 billion to the U.S. economy, making up 5.5 percent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product. Nonprofits employ the third largest workforce in America behind retail and manufacturing, and they continue to grow at a rate that surpasses both the business and government sectors.
Yet philanthropy is behind most U.S. sectors because of the lack of real-time feedback loops. GuideStar’s Impact Call is meant to reframe nonprofit transparency to include information that is more timely, interactive, inclusive, and comprehensive. Loosely based on the quarterly earnings calls held by publicly-owned companies, the Impact Call is open to everyone and will be the first step in addressing these new transparency definitions:
