About The Giving Marketplace
Sharing information about local nonprofits in one convenient location was the mission behind The Giving Marketplace when it launched in 2014. The platform was powered by DonorsEdge, a GuideStar product that allowed community foundations to serve nonprofit clients, donors, funders, volunteers and others with access to comprehensive information about local nonprofits. It has become an important resource and we are proud of the impact it had on our local nonprofit community.
In 2018 GuideStar and The Foundation Center merged to become Candid. The decision was made to discontinue the DonorsEdge product. In October, 2020, the Community Foundation transitioned to GuideStar Local. Now, instead of seeing only the organizations that registered through us, you can see all 501(c)3 organizations that are incorporated within our four-county service area.
We continue to coach nonprofit organizations completing or updating their profile. We also support funders who use this valuable information in their decision-making process. We are available to answer questions from donors who are researching organizations that they want to invest their time or philanthropic dollars in.
