What we aim to solve New!

We need people to appreciate nature more, pollute less, exercise more, and adopt healthier lifestyles. Trails connect people to nature near where they live by providing enjoyable paths where they can exercise, meet neighbors, as well as get to where they are going in a beautiful and invigorating natural environment.

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).
