Users Can Get Comprehensive Information without Committing to a Subscription
Release date: June 1, 2011

Washington, D.C.—GuideStar, the leading source of nonprofit information, today announced a new way for customers to obtain GuideStar data with the launch of GuideStar Premium Pay As You Go, which allows users to purchase a single report for a specific nonprofit featuring GuideStar Premium's comprehensive data. GuideStar Premium Pay As You Go is designed for users with the intermittent need for comprehensive data on specific organizations and can accommodate limited budgets, as there is no subscription required or other recurring charges. GuideStar Premium Pay As You Go is the perfect tool for accountants, attorneys, consultants, prospectors, and funding researchers who need up-to-date, accurate nonprofit information for one or two individual nonprofits.

"GuideStar's users now have three ways of using our comprehensive, trusted nonprofit data that is included with GuideStar Premium, enabling sophisticated analysis and outstanding bottom-line results," said Bob Ottenhoff, president and CEO of GuideStar. "With the introduction of GuideStar Premium Pay As You Go, we're making GuideStar Premium data available to customers across the user spectrum."

GuideStar Premium Subscriptions are perfect for people who need nonprofit data on several organizations as well as sophisticated tools for finding and managing the information they need. Subscriptions are available on a monthly or annual basis. Companies with 11 or more users needing continual access to GuideStar Premium data can purchase a license agreement. Our new Pay As You Go product is perfect for people who just need a one-time report.

GuideStar Premium Pay As You Go provides the deep, historical data that GuideStar Premium has always offered in a professionally packaged, freestanding, date-stamped PDF report. How much information appears in a nonprofit's GuideStar Premium Pay As You Go report is determined by how much information is available for that organization on www.guidestar.org.

Reports for organizations with the greatest depth and breadth of data—those that participate in the GuideStar Exchange and file IRS Form 990—will contain:

  • Basic information, such as organization name, address, subsection code, and NTEE code
