GuideStar is an information service specializing in reporting on U.S. nonprofit companies. In 2016, its database provided information on 2.5 million organizations. GuideStar was one of the first central sources of information on U.S. nonprofits and is the world's largest source of information about nonprofit organizations. GuideStar's operations include data digitization, database management and development, nonprofit services, web site operations and research.
Our partnership with GuideStar has helped us by providing an independent public-format verification of our corporate establishment that advances our transparency to potential donors and grantmakers. This helps to reassure donors that their funds are being used as they intended, which encourages charitable giving.
