GuideStar President Named to NonProfit Times Power and Influence Top 50


Arthur "Buzz" Schmidt Named Nonprofit Executive of the Year


Buzz SchmidtAs hard as he tries, Arthur "Buzz" Schmidt, Jr. can't help but look a little rumpled, even in a new suit. "One of our directors, who's always giving me a hard time about how funny I look, said, 'If you're ever successful at GuideStar, we're going to have to get you a new suit.' I don't think it's the suit, I think it's me," said Schmidt, the president of Philanthropic Research, which created GuideStar in 1994.
