Though you give with your heart, your head wants assurance that the organizations you support are using your donations beneficially. More and more donors are “doing their homework” before giving, to get a better understanding of the organization’s structure and effectiveness.

Researching is easy

We’ve made it easy to research local nonprofits using The Giving Marketplace. The Giving Marketplace is a free, online searchable database of in-depth information, offering insight that will make your giving decisions easier. Each unique nonprofit profile offers comprehensive information about programs (including impact and measures), finances, governance, operations and management.

Additionally, you can search for nonprofits by name or category, helping you easily identify organizations that ignite your philanthropic passion.
