YNPN San Diego Partners with BetterGiving

The San Diego Foundation is pleased to announce a new resource under development for our communities. BetterGiving is a powerful online tool to inform, empower and enrich charitable giving in the region--benefiting donors, nonprofits and the community at large. The underlying database provides access to information about local nonprofits, including financial, governance and programmatic details.

YNPN San Diego and The San Diego Foundation are excited to partner on outreach for this new resource. The San Diego Foundation values young professionals and their work to enhance the sector.

Powered by GuideStar, and supported by foundation staff, data is assembled into information and, over time, matures into a deep knowledge base of nonprofit organizations, providing essential services for the Greater San Diego region. For more information, please visit
