GiveSmart.org Introduces Decision Tool To Help Donors Choose The Best Nonprofits

Tags: charitable giving

GiveSmart is introducing a donor decision tool to help philanthropists decide which organizations they should support. The tool could help financial advisors who work with individuals who are charitably inclined.

This Website Is For Financial Professionals Only


 

The tool for donors helps philanthropists at all levels, with flexibility on how deep they want to go in assessing potential grantees.

 

The Donor Decision Tool poses 10 questions. Donors then receive a customized set of materials designed to help them navigate the process of selecting a grantee.  Questions addressed include:

  • Where do I start when learning more about a nonprofit?
  • How can I analyze a potential grantee’s financial situation?
  • When is it appropriate to request an in-person meeting with a nonprofit leader, and what questions should I ask?

GiveSmart.org collects and shares effective practices, including case studies, practical how-to guides, and tools. The website is part of a three-year grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
