Sandi Vidal

VP, Community Strategy & Initiatives

Central Florida Foundation

Migrating our nonprofit database to the DonorEdge GuideStar platform went very smoothly. We are grateful for the GuideStar team and their expertise, guidance, and flexibility. Our nonprofit partners find the new DonorHouston visually appealing, functional, and easy to update.




Eileen Alexander

DonorHouston & Nonprofit Liaison

Greater Houston Community Foundation


The synchronization between the Giving Common and GuideStar is a game-changer. Nonprofits enter their information on the Giving Common, and it flows to GuideStar, eliminating duplicate effort for transparency. Many of our nonprofit partners also love the ‘Donate Now’ option for credit card giving.
