What Is the GuideStar Exchange?
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.
