Already have a Platinum Seal? Check out the Bonus Prize.

How to Enter

Update your Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar to at least the next Seal level between June 19 and June 28. If your organization doesn’t have a seal, claim your profile and earn Bronze. If you are already at Bronze, you must earn Silver; if you are already at Silver, you must earn Gold; and if you are already at Gold, you must earn Platinum. If your organization has a 2017 or 2018 Seal, you must earn the next 2019 Seal level.

You may need to update prior Seal levels to move forward. Earning the same level Seal with a current year doesn’t qualify you to win.
