Together, build a stronger sector

The GuideStar Partnership is open to all foundations and corporate programs that believe a strong, sustainable nonprofit sector is necessary to drive social change.

GuideStar Partners support the growth and influence of the GuideStar Nonprofit Profiles philanthropically while getting access to GuideStar nonprofit data through our grantmaking tools.

They invest in our shared mission of broader and deeper data that informs decision making and expands distribution of this information. Partners serve as key investors, helping drive Candid’s efforts to deliver greater transparency and accountability across the sector.

“GuideStar helps us feel more secure in the analysis and decisions we make. The data makes everything more real; if it reveals financial issues with prospective nonprofit grantees or current nonprofit partners we can feel informed to ask about those. GuideStar helps us make educated grant decisions.”
—Chris Percopo
Director of Grants Information and Management at The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust
