Upgrades to GuideStar Search

In response to feedback from our users, we’ve refined a few of our search features. One of these changes affect all searches, and the others are limited to our subscription products, GuideStar Charity Check, Premium, and Pro.

Using the New GuideStar Search

A Better Way to Explore the Nonprofit Sector

Be One of the First to Try GuideStar’s New Nonprofit Search

Most people visit GuideStar to search our Nonprofit Profiles. Together, our users search the database 1.1 million times a month. The database search is a vital part of the user experience.

Our current search was state of the art when we launched it 10 years ago. Although we’ve tweaked and refined it, it’s showing its age. And it can’t hold a candle to searches on sites such as Google, Kayak, and Amazon.

That’s why we’ve spent the last year rebuilding the GuideStar search.  We’ve tested and revised it internally, and now we’re ready to test it in the real world.
