  • Incorporate nonprofit data into an app or program
  • Verify the status of individual organizations or several nonprofits at once
  • Obtain public school information
“To say that our partnership with GuideStar is essential to CrowdRise is a massive understatement. Their kick ass API is the backbone of our social fundraising platform and, beyond their amazing tools, the team at GuideStar is passionate and relentless about helping us impact the world.”
