The CBO Module vs. The CBO Network:
What’s the Difference?

How the CBO Module Works:

The community-based organizations module is a central system of record for managing:

1. Organizational details
2. Geographical areas served
3. Key contacts

The module is directly integrated into the Equity Mapping toolkit and your resident database.

How the Module works:

✓ Import your organization data
✓ Add new organizations
✓ Associate one or more contacts with an organization
✓ View and Edit organization details
✓ Search and filter organizations in a list view in your CRM
✓ Search and filter organizations on a map in the Equity Mapping interface
✓ Overlay GIS layers with CBO data in the Equity Mapping interface
✓ Select and export organizations from Equity Mapping

How the CBO Network Works:

PublicInput has partnered with Candid, the leading provider of nonprofit data, to seed the Network using publicly available data on charitable organizations and nonprofits. We’ve further enhanced that data using other data providers like ESRI to build a robust dataset.

All organizations are categorized using Candid’s well-established taxonomy of organization subject codes to ensure consistency across teams.

Here’s a snapshot of some of the categories included in the CBO Network:

✓ Faith-based organizations
✓ Professional organizations and Chambers of Commerce
✓ Housing Development Foundations
✓ Parent-Teacher Associations
✓ Public Health organizations
✓ Environmental and Natural Resource organizations
✓ Public media and news organizations
✓ Anti-discrimination organizations
✓ Rural and Urban Economic Development Groups
✓ Public Libraries
