GuideStar members: To enroll in this event, you will need to join/login to GrantSpace first. It takes just a few minutes, and it's free to do. (Candid websites are still on separate systems, but we're working on combining them.)

Your grant applications, proposals, and annual reports have most—if not all—of the information you need to update your Nonprofit Profile on GuideStar.

Updating your profile ensures that GuideStar’s more than 10 million annual users—and the millions more who visit our 200+ partner sites, such as Facebook, AmazonSmile, and Network for Good—will see your up-to-date information.

In fact, new research indicates that organizations that earned a GuideStar Seal of Transparency averaged 53 percent more in contributions the following year than organizations with no Seal.

Join our free online training on Thursday, June 13, to learn how to use your latest grant proposals to earn a Platinum Seal of Transparency, GuideStar’s highest form of recognition. Our in-house experts will lead you step-by-step through the updating process, providing insights along the way.
