Community Compass

Donors & Foundations

Foundations and philanthropists can use Community Compass to:

Find organizations in particular locations or engaged in particular types of program activities.

Assess nonprofit capacity and where organizations are located in relationship to each other and to community needs. You could, for example, see what human service organizations are located within 1 or 5 miles of a specific school. You could also compare the locations of organizations with poverty rates.

Help your nonprofit partners or grantees track their performance.

Build a library or knowledgebase of research, reports, documents, and videos on your community.

Create a special page just for your community initiative and document its work through words, pictures and data. You can customize the page to show all your nonprofit partners or grantees; color-code organizations or programs by type; select from among our hundreds of community indicators to highlight key needs; upload a carousel of photographs and more.
