- Form 990 Web Site Project
Demonstrates the ability to store and retrieve Form 990 submissions. All sizable nonprofit organizations must submit a completed Form 990 annually. Many state governments also rely on the 990 for nonprofit financial reporting.
At this site, a donor can search guideStar's on-line database for a report on a nonprofit organization by its location, revenue, key word or activity field. "Just as you wouldn't invest money in a company you don't know anything about, a donor shouldn't give money to an organization without understanding its objectives, values, and effectiveness", says PRI president Arthur Schmidt Jr. Caution: Data base is based on IRS data from form 990 (or a financial statement if revenue is below $25,000). Some of the data is old (1992), and many small organizations have less then $25,000 in income.
