What we aim to solve New!

Adults with disabilities are not appreciated or valued -- instead they are excluded and ignored. Without friendship and community, they languish at home. In turn, their families become isolated, not benefiting from supports or friendship. In addition, adults with disabilities have a very difficult time getting Medicaid waivers, which would provide for those of these supports.

Board Leadership Practices

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
