How You Can Help

Volunteers/Supporters

A key activity of EPS’s (and our largest unmet need) is in conducting online research to gather necessary information on nonprofit organizations. The information required is not available in any one source which is one important reason why the work EPS’s is doing is so important.
Citizens, Donors, Organizations and Volunteers all benefit from this effort. For example, volunteers can help keep their research skills sharp and their resumes fresh by contributing to this project. Emerging Organizations gain exposure to partnership opportunities with donor agencies and the ratings EPS generates from our data assessments provide up-to-date guidance and feedback executives need to lead the organization forward. Donors can access information that helps them determine where the greatest need is and which organizations to fund fi they want to achieve the greatest impact. Citizens targeted for assistance benefit from having a cost-free directory of services in their area as well as a forum to provide direct feedback on their direct experience with helping organizations.
