GuideStar is a 501(c)(3) public charity that collects, organizes, and presents information about every single IRS-registered nonprofit organization in an easy-to-understand format while remaining neutral.
The GuideStar Exchange is an initiative designed to connect nonprofits with current and potential supporters. With millions of people coming to GuideStar to learn more about nonprofit organizations, the GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to share a wealth of up-to-date information with GuideStar’s vast on-line audience of grantmakers and individual donors.
GuideStar Exchange members are nonprofits that have updated their nonprofit reports. There are three levels of participation, determined by how much information organizations have shared through the GuideStar Exchange.
