Course Description

What is GuideStar and why do I care? GuideStar is the largest repository of information about the nonprofit sector and provides EVERY nonprofit with a profile page that contains information that is publicly available. That information is accessed by online giving platforms (such as Amazon Smile, JustGive.org, and CrowdRise), donors, and funders to find out more about your organization. You can claim that profile and update it to more accurately reflect what your organization does and who it serves.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Participants will know three key reasons for claiming and keeping their GuideStar profile current.
  • Participants will have a working knowledge of the information needed to secure each of the GuideStar transparency seals and why they are important.
  • Participants will be able to update their organization’s GuideStar profile, both now and in the future.
  • Participants will know how to update their profile to reflect specific changes or needs related to COVID-19.
