The GuideStar Exchange

Each nonprofit in GuideStar's database has a report—a Web page on our site devoted entirely to your organization so people can learn more about your great work. Most of these pages present data your organization submitted to the IRS. IRS information, however, doesn't always give GuideStar's 22,000 daily visitors a complete or timely picture of your nonprofit.

The GuideStar Exchange is an opportunity for you to show your organization's commitment to transparency and communicate directly with your stakeholders through GuideStar—for FREE. By "claiming" your organization's report, you can make sure institutional funders, donors, professionals, and the general public have up-to-date, reliable data about your nonprofit. Recent research shows that transparency is important for supporters.

By keeping your GuideStar report up to date, you're not only reaching GuideStar's 7 million annual visitors but also millions of visitors to such partner sites as Facebook Causes, Network for Good, Change.org, various donor-advised funds, and more.

"[Online] fundraising is built upon GuideStar. Change.org, Network for Good, and Facebook Causes (just to name a few) are pulling your organization's information from GuideStar. ... donations made to your organization are mailed to the address listed in GuideStar! Nonprofits need to understand the importance of keeping their GuideStar entry current."
