To ensure that we recommend organizations that demonstrate financial health, responsible stewardship of donations and a proven track record of impact, Goodnation gathers data from professional foundations, nonprofits, databases and publicly filed tax documents to score nonprofits on the following categories:
Foundation support: The top 10 foundations by size in the United States spend over $1B annually on research, due diligence and on-going monitoring of nonprofit grantees; Goodnation is built on this substantial body of work. Each nonprofit must have a recent grant of $10,000 or more from a professional foundation with a dedicated staff, which indicates that the nonprofit has been submitted to and passed a careful review process. In fact, most nonprofits on the platform have support from multiple professional foundations, having gone through individual due diligence processes with each one, as well as on-going monitoring.
Nonprofits who pass our scoring process are then invited to submit information directly to Goodnation on their mission, leadership, impact and what sets their work apart. All of the above information is included in their profile page on the Goodnation Platform.
