View our GuideStar profile at'555 In a country like India that has a vast but higly scattered NGO sector, lack of reliable information is a serious bottleneck for philanthropy to grow. As an aggregator of NGO information, GuideStar India is playing a vital role in building the ecosystem for a philanthropy marketplace. GuideStar India pursues a ground up model to collect information from NGOs. It also receives data from Government bodies like CAPART, the Planning Commission, the National Trust of the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment and YASHADA. This data is often historic and incomplete. GuideStar India persistenly follows up with NGOs to clean up and update the data, while also educating NGOs to embrace transparency by consenting to put their information in the public domain. Verified information is made available in the public domain and is also fed back to the source including government sources. If there were answers to these questions at the click of a button, we believe policy makers, foundations, donors and volunteers would be in a position to take informed decisions and consequently direct resources to the most deserving. NGOs are constantly in search of support (money/material/people) and spend much of their time and energy in reaching out to potential sources of support. However, they are either not aware of or not equipped to provide the required information in the appropriate form so that resource providers could allocate resources effectively and efficiently. To bridge the gap between the two ends, as stated above, through our NGO outreach programmes, we educate NGOs about the need for using information to showcase their work, articulate their needs, and make voluntarily, public disclosure, of programme and financial indicators in a manner that is easily searchable and usable. We have developed GuideStar India keeping in mind the needs of various user groups (donors, volunteers, foundations, CSR Managers media, government, academia) who we would like to see using information to power their philanthropy and decisions impacting non profit organisations.
