You may be encountering an increasing number of grant applications that include questions about the demographics of your staff. This growing trend reflects an effort to better understand where philanthropic dollars are being invested and where there may be gaps and communities that are being overlooked.
While some foundations that ask for information have their own forms, there is also a developing trend in the philanthropic community to encourage sharing this information as a routine practice via Candid’s Guidestar database – the primary repository for nonprofit data.
But how do you ask for this information from your team in a respectful way? Join us for a Lunch & Learn with Georganna Woods, a Research Specialist and Meet-the-Donors Manager at Philanthropy Massachusetts, to find out more about collecting and reporting your demographic data. Share your challenges and connect for strategies to support your organization in this process!
