Short answer - yes. Our nonprofit partners sign off on all information presented in the app.
We aggregate the nonprofit's financial and accountability data. Then, we benchmark the nonprofit’s metrics against nonprofits within the same industry.
All nonprofit data comes from the organization's website and filed Form 990s. We require at least 3 years of Form 990 data to accurately measure a nonprofit's track record.
We assign points based on how the nonprofit benchmarks against the industry average. The total amount of points available is based on the importance of a metric.
The Form 990 is a United States IRS form that provides the public with financial and accountability data about a nonprofit organization.
