Understanding stifling life obstacles on a micro and macro level, and providing solutions to them, has always been Manifezt's focus. The organization's current programs and initiatives focus on educational workshops through hands-on learning to supplement traditional lecture education. We aim to teach the skills that prospective employers are looking for in an increasingly technical world, one where STEM skills are held at a premium and are the gate way to high paying jobs.

Partnering with forward-thinking organizations to cultivate a community of thoughtful leaders, our foundation aims to bridge generational divides by rectifying socioeconomic issues that have left a gap in opportunity for many born into lower income households. Our leaders believe in the power of education, entrepreneurship, and increasing the availability of the necessary resources to ensure our future innovators can reach their full potential and contribute to our continually transforming society.

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization


Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?



Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?



Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?



Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?



Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?


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).
