What Is A GuideStar Nonprofit Profile
The GuideStar database contains a profile for every tax-exempt nonprofit registered in the U.S. with the IRS. GuideStar invites nonprofits to update their profiles at no cost to the organizations. Updating allows nonprofits to share a wealth of up-to-date information with the millions of people who visit GuideStar yearly to learn more about nonprofit organizations and the more than 120 sites and applications that use GuideStar data. The GuideStar logos, acknowledged as symbols of transparency in the nonprofit sector, are displayed on all updated participants’ profiles in the GuideStar database.
