A number of great companies, organizations, and groups have tailored their work to meet the needs of nonprofit organizations. In order to provide deep benefits and resources to participants of the free GuideStar Exchange, we have partnered with the groups listed on this page. Depending on your organization's needs, you might consider exploring the services and products these groups offer.
The GuideStar Exchange is our free program that allows nonprofits to manage their profiles on GuideStar, demonstrate commitment to transparency, and connect with GuideStar's vast audience of funders and donors. There are three levels of participation, dictated by how much information nonprofits supply.
If you are a GuideStar Exchange Gold or Silver participant, take advantage of these benefits by logging into GuideStar, going to your GuideStar Exchange report, and clicking on Benefits.
