Give the Gift of Giving in 2016

Give the Gift of Giving in 2016December 31 is your final opportunity to make a 2016 tax-deductible contribution while making an impact on the individuals, communities, and organizations served by the nonprofit sector.

As you finalize your year-end charitable giving, GuideStar is here to help. With data on more than 1.8 million nonprofits, GuideStar can help you research and understand more deeply the causes and organizations you care about.

GuideStar believes that better data leads to better giving decisions and a better world. Through our redesigned nonprofit search tool, our expanded distribution network of more than 200 websites and applications, and our investment in philanthropic research and analysis with a new, in-house data scientist, we are committed to making nonprofit information available wherever and whenever you need it.

Information matters to social change, and your donation matters for GuideStar. As a nonprofit ourselves, we rely on the generous support of donors like you so we can continue to provide high-quality data and intelligence to an ever-growing group of users.
