More than 1.5 million nonprofits were registered with the IRS as tax exempt as of September 12, 2016. Although two-thirds of organizations within this pool are indeed public charities, there are also many organizations whose nonprofit status routinely surprises the journalists, researchers, and everyday users who discover their GuideStar Nonprofit Profiles.
We thought it'd be fun to share these Four Famous Organizations You Might Not Know Are Nonprofits. Who on this list surprises you?
The Superstar Foundation invited GuideStar to help find, recognize, and grant a $5,000 award to a case manager, social worker, or direct service staff who is a Superstar within his or her GuideStar Platinum-level organization. We'd like to congratulate this year's Superstar Award winner, Clair Watson!
More than ever before, the people on the front lines of social change are in agreement: we need to evolve the conversation about nonprofit overhead. It's time to reduce the Overhead Myth's stranglehold on donors, the media, and the general public.

Each year, more than 7 million people use GuideStar to find data on 2.4 million current and formerly IRS-recognized nonprofits. Being the data nerds that we are, we wondered: what organizations are our users most curious about?
For a little over two years, GuideStar's held quarterly Impact Calls as an excercise in addressing new definitions of transparency. Loosely based on the quarterly earnings calls held by publicly owned companies, the goal of our Impact Call is not simply to report our results, but to jump-start the conversation on how transparency is defined and conveyed across the sector.
