The Youth Law Center was recently identified as 1 of 9 high-impact nonprofits working with at-risk youth by 88 experts. As a result, Philanthropedia is highlighting the Youth Law Center on its website as well as on GuideStar Take Action’s website.
Philanthropedia is an online resource for donors who want to make a bigger difference with their charitable giving. They believe it’s hard to evaluate nonprofit effectiveness and one-sided metrics like overhead ratios and fundraising efficiencies are misleading and incomplete. Rather, they believe experts working in the field, such as foundation professionals, researchers, and nonprofit senior staff, are best suited to evaluate nonprofits in a more holistic way. As of April 2011, Philanthropedia was acquired by GuideStar. GuideStar is the industry leader in nonprofit data with information on more than 1.8 million nonprofits. And, as an industry leader, GuideStar has a national audience of millions of professionals, funders, advisors, individuals, and others.
