The Urban Institute strengthens the quality and availability of information about nonprofits and the services they provide. Our 501(c)(3) e-filing, community sharing platform, and performance management tools have empowered nonprofits with more effective leadership and efficient service. By elevating standards and measures of organizational success, we strengthen nonprofits’ ability to solve pressing social challenges.
