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).

Diversity notes from the nonprofit
It is the intent of Friends of Panthertown to employ and retain the most qualified individuals without regard to race, age, color, religion, sex, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, expression of gender identity, socioeconomic status, source of legal income, geographic origin, political affiliation, marital status, disability, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local law.
