GuideStar APIs Are Now Even Better

Hundreds of partners rely on our APIs (application programming interfaces) to integrate GuideStar data into their websites and applications. Last year, we proudly released our next generation APIs. We’d completely rebuilt them to provide more powerful searches and more in-depth information. Our customers overwhelmingly embraced these enhancements.

Today, we’re excited to announce additional upgrades to two of our APIs. We’ve added more information, some of it available only through GuideStar, and added new filters so your users can find information in new ways.


Why We’re Excited to Launch Our Next Generation APIs Today

My first nonprofit job was in 1996 as a door-to-door canvasser to raise money for the Florida Public Interest Research Group. It was hard and felt like a crapshoot. But it taught me the value of perseverance and not taking no for an answer. I canvassed for six summers in my teens and twenties, all the while knowing there had to be a more efficient way to reach our potential supporters. We were a kick-ass group and we knew that the right people would support us when we found them.
