Donation Button on GuideStar Nonprofit Profiles Temporary Unavailable

 

Starting on June 8, 2018, we will no longer be working with the partner who has been processing donations made through the GuideStar website. This means users will no longer be able to give directly to your organization via your GuideStar Nonprofit Profile.

 

In the meantime, we don't want you to miss out on donations that would have come through our site. The below guides will tell you how to direct donors from your Nonprofit Profile to a donation page on your site, how to take advantage of fundraising opportunities through our partners, and how to view past donations made through your Nonprofit Profile. If you find these guides are still not answering your questions, please create a support case and we will respond to you within one business day.
