If you care about nonprofits and the work they do, then you're affected by what GuideStar does. You see, we gather and publicize information about nonprofit organizations. Our reach is far and wide. Our database is broad and deep. We encourage nonprofits to share information about their organizations openly and completely. Any nonprofit in our database can update its report with information about its mission, programs, leaders, goals, accomplishments, and needs—for free. We combine the information that nonprofits supply with data from several other sources. Why are we so passionate about nonprofit information? Because the best possible decisions are made when donors, funders, researchers, educators, professional service providers, governing agencies, and the media use the quality information that we provide. Those decisions affect our world today and will continue to affect it for generations to come. Subscriptions and licensing fees for our services provide important financial support for our work—in 2006, they made up 64 percent of our total revenue. The remaining 36 percent came from generous foundations and donors—we're a public charity, too. We have an ambitious plan for long-term sustainability, but we are also committed to providing nonprofit information to a broad audience at no cost to those users. It's part of our public service, one that we pledge to continue. Source:
