GuideStar seeks "to revolutionize philanthropy and nonprofit practice by providing information that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving." Progress in American philanthropy and nonprofit practice is constrained by the absence of extensive information about the practices of nonprofit organizations. Before GuideStar, donors lacked the information to initiate their philanthropy and follow the progress of organizations to which they give; nonprofits and their boards had no means to study and/or compare their own operating practices and results with those of similar organizations; and nonprofits, government agencies, and grants administrators suffered from the requirements of burdensome and duplicative reporting systems. By securing the collaboration of all of these audiences, GuideStar is now building the common, open information infrastructure required to eliminate these inefficiencies and ensure a more effective allocation of society's resources.
