GuideStar Takes an Extra Step for Community Foundation Partners


GuideStar is proud of its partnership with community foundations through its DonorEdge technology platform. We’ve recently taken our support of community foundation partners, known as the DonorEdge Learning Community, a step further by merging the nonprofit information in their DonorEdge profiles with our GuideStar Exchange program. This innovative solution allows anyone using the GuideStar website for research to see more in-depth nonprofit information with the stroke of a key. This sharing of information across GuideStar platforms saves nonprofits working with a DonorEdge Learning Community partner the burden of entering their information twice into our various technology databases, and makes it easier for grantmakers, supporters, and other stakeholders to find and view their information.

We are continuing to look at our infrastructure and merge our various users’ information where possible. If you have any ideas of how we can better support you, please let us know in the comments below!
