The post-it reads ‘GuideStar shows salaries of non-profits’.
Of all the things I learned at AORN, GuideStar may be one of the most interesting.
It does many things. It is a blog. It is an accounting for all non-profits in the US. It breaks down how much money it has, how much money it has taken in through receipts.
Including its assets.
I had no idea that such a thing existed.
Of course, to get more in depth information you need an account. I did a cursory look at the CEO of the company I work for. It would not divulge how much the CEO made, without an account.
But any non profit is searchable.
Including the university I will be going to in the fall.
A company that you want to do business, and is a non-profit is searchable. It is a rabbit hole that you can use to direct your giving.
Money does many things. It eases the world.
I will say that looking up non-profits is a little bit addictive.
I would like more information of what are assets and what are receipts.
To be clear, this is merely a snapshot of the non-profit.
It does not tell the entire story.
But it does tell a story.
It gives you information and data to make your own decision.
