What People Are Saying

GuideStar Nonprofit Profiles help the sector take a leap forward from data and information about charities to powerful knowledge and insight to help us make informed decisions. The emphasis on programs and results, the user-friendly visualization, the multi-year trend data, and the ability to compare nonprofits will benefit donors, nonprofits, media, policy makers, and those seeking services.

My experience being a board member at Village Enterprise, where we have a Platinum Seal on GuideStar, is that it’s made fundraising easier. The Platinum Seal helps us stand out since there are so many nonprofits for donors to choose from.




Jamie Austin

Board Member

Our GuideStar profile probably saves us 40 hours a week. We’re constantly asked for our financials, details about our mission, and reviews. Sending people to our Nonprofit Profile frees us up to focus on our mission.
