GuideStar
GuideStar
GuideStar’s mission is to revolutionize philanthropy and nonprofit practice by providing information that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving. They encourage nonprofits to share information about their organizations openly and completely. Any nonprofit in the database can update its report with information about its mission, programs, leaders, goals, accomplishments, and needs—for free. They combine the information that nonprofits supply with data from several other sources. They believe the best possible decisions are made when donors, funders, researchers, educators, professional service providers, governing agencies, and the media use the quality information that GuideStar provides. Those decisions affect our world today and will continue to affect it for generations to come
