An organization has general information about the nonprofit or government agency that has opportunities available to people in need.

The opportunities available to people are listed under an organization. Reviews and ratings can also be added to an organization in general, rather than a specific opportunity.

Organization data structure


The common name of the organization or organizational unit. This should be the name it is most commonly known as, rather than the technical or legal name.


The URL to the homepage of the organization’s website.


The general description of what the organization does. This should include only relevant information such as its scope of services. It should not include its mission statement, funding sources, information about its governance, or other information that does not have value to a consumer seeking help.
