What: GuideStar recently released GuideStar 2020, its new strategic plan. During its next Impact Call, GuideStar’s thought leaders will reveal how GuideStar plans to build the information scaffolding for social change and how it can help ensure that the nonprofit sector is capable of tackling the great challenges of our time.
GuideStar’s Impact Calls quickly and proactively provide results to constituents and begin a systematic dialogue that encourages data-driven decision making across the nonprofit sector. Join GuideStar as they host their third Impact Call to redefine what transparency means to philanthropy as well as discuss their second quarter financial and programmatic outcomes, new developments, and lessons learned.
Who: Leaders of GuideStar USA, Inc., the leading source of nonprofit information:
When: Monday, August 11, 2014, 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. EDT
Why: The nonprofit sector is incredibly important, contributing more than $800 billion to the U.S. economy and 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 the nonprofit sector continues 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:
