GuideStar.org gathers & disseminates info about non-profit organizations.
Revolutionizing the Nonprofit Sector
In 1994, GuideStar began as a new venture with a bold vision: to revolutionize philanthropy and nonprofit practice with information. We became a 501(c)(3) public charity in 1996.
In our journey to create a more transparent and accountable nonprofit community, we are reshaping the infrastructure of the nonprofit sector. Nonprofits embrace this practice of transparency and accountability when they share information about their mission, programs, and finances with the public. Accurate information is a powerful tool, and our users have responded with better-informed, more effective giving decisions.
A Well-Informed Community of Giving
When we began, we envisioned GuideStar as a resource that would connect people and organizations with valuable information to improve the world around them. Today, GuideStar is the leader in providing comprehensive data on more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations, connecting them with donors, foundations, businesses, and governing agencies in a nationwide community of giving.
