My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for GuideStar, Williamsburg, VA, USA
I learned about Guidestar when it just launched (was that 20 years ago?, not sure). Back then the notion of being able to access 990's online was providing a great resource to donors & industry professionals alike. Since then, Guidestar continues to think "outside the box" and strives to provide relevant data to and about the nonprofit community.
Professionally, as a grant-making foundation, we rely on Guidestar for tax exemption checks, informational articles, and as a source to access 990 data. Their website is a very valuable resource to us. We'd participate more if we could make it cost effective. The current product pricing structure does not suit our organization. I would like to see additional member/subscription levels for intermediary use. Perhaps that will come.
In the mean-time: keep up the good work!
