In Spring 2020, we’re upgrading the GiveSmartOKC platform to provide a more powerful charitable giving data hub for our community! We’ll provide you with more details as we get closer to the relaunch, but here are a few updates you can get excited about:
Community-level Data: The new GiveSmartOKC will integrate neighborhood-level indicator data including demographics, education and health statistics to help identify areas of strengths and weaknesses throughout our community. Through geospatial mapping, users can visualize where organizations are working down to the neighborhood, zip code or census tract.
Enhanced Nonprofit Profiles: New nonprofit profiles will feature the same in-depth information, but with enhanced accessibility and an improved look allowing users to virtually tour nonprofit organizations with the click of a button.
Why are we Switching Platforms? A recent merger between Guidestar and Foundation Center triggered the impending termination of our current Guidestar-hosted platform. We are excited to partner with Thriving Cities Group to transition your existing GiveSmartOKC profiles to a new and improved community data hub!
What’s Next? Following is a tentative timeline of what to expect during the transition. GiveSmartOKC organizations will receive specific dates and details throughout the coming months.
- Late January to Early February: All up-to-date profiles will be automatically transferred to the updated platform.
- Late February: All nonprofits will receive an email with instructions on how to access the new platform.
- Late February to Early March: Launch of updated GiveSmartOKC.
