GuideStar announced major changes to the GuideStar Exchange, which encourages nonprofit transparency on a national scale and allows nonprofits to supplement the public information that is available from the IRS. The program is now made up of bronze, silver, and gold participation levels that reward nonprofits based on the amount of information they share with the public via GuideStar, rather than an all-or-nothing Seal program. The GuideStar Exchange is free, open to nonprofits of all sizes, and is designed to connect nonprofits with donors, funders, and other stakeholders through information sharing.
