In the modern society, it’s essential to have the means for tracking and measuring social change and progress. This is why GuideStar Platinum is here to deliver the vector for nonprofit organizations to convert and express their accomplishments in numbers. GuideStar offers organizations a full freedom to decide their own variables and identifiers, but at the same time it aims to bridge as many of the possible scales and metrics together as possible. Any size or company format qualifies for the full benefits of GuideStar, and grants equal participation with the colleagues from all over the world.
- It is not GuideStar’s job to choose what a nonprofit should measure. It’s the nonprofit’s job
- We can learn better together. We are more likely to improve how the nonprofit sector measures performance if we work together
- The field has too often let the perfect be the enemy of the good when it comes to performance measurement.
“Benchmarking can lead to helpful conversations and learning—even when nonprofits use the same metric in different ways.”
