Who We Are
We invite you to learn more about First Hand and the donors, volunteers and partners who make it all possible. We encourage you to read more about the lives you've changed and continue to change on a daily basis!
First Hand earned a 2019 Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar — the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. By sharing metrics that highlight progress we are helping donors move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess nonprofit progress.
We’re proud to have earned a Platinum Seal to share our full and complete story with the world. To reach the highest level of transparency, we added extensive information to our Nonprofit Profile: basic information about our missions, programs, leadership, etc.; in-depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and vision, and the progress we are making toward our mission.
