We believe a strong nonprofit information infrastructure enables a social sector strong enough to tackle the great challenges of our time. GuideStar provides the key scaffolding - data, information, and knowledge - to enable effective philanthropy: better giving decisions, more effective programs, and measurable impact. We do that by gathering and disseminating information about every single IRS-registered nonprofit organization. We provide as much information as we can about each nonprofit's mission, legitimacy, impact, reputation, finances, programs, transparency, governance, and so much more. We do that so people can make the best decisions possible based on high-quality, comprehensive information.
