Get Ready for #GivingTuesday with the GuideStar Exchange


On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will celebrate #GivingTuesday by coming together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Is your nonprofit ready?

The free GuideStar Exchange gets your nonprofit in front of millions of potential donors and funders. Make sure you're maximizing your nonprofit's #GivingTuesday donation potential by claiming and updating your nonprofit's report on the GuideStar Exchange.

Let the Power of Amazon Help Your Cause


Did you know your charity can receive donations through the AmazonSmile program? As long as your nonprofit is listed on GuideStar and meets AmazonSmile's eligibility criteria, customers will be able to select your organization. When customers shop at, Amazon donates a portion of the purchase price to eligible charities.

As the countdown to #GivingTuesday begins, make sure your nonprofit's information is accurate and up to date! The GuideStar Exchange allows you to manage the information available to the public on GuideStar and its many partners—like AmazonSmile, Network for Good, and more—for free. Take full advantage of AmazonSmile this giving season! Update your GuideStar Exchange report

Don't Forget!


GuideStar Exchange participants at the Gold and Silver levels have access to a number of great discounts and free products.

Warmest wishes from your GuideStar colleagues, and may you have a profitable #GivingTuesday!
