Thank you for contacting the GuideStar Community.
I shared your message with our Director of Nonprofit Support, since this organization is registered with the IRS and appearing on the IRS Business Master File, we are unable to remove it from GuideStar. GuideStar receives all its information on 501c organization's directly from the IRS on a monthly basis.
You would need to contact the IRS and or the organization themselves. You may contact the Nonprofit Division of the IRS for more information at: (877) 829-5500 (toll-free number). The IRS call center is open 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern Time. Once the IRS removes the organization from the Business Master File, we will receive that update from the IRS.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Good Morning Sandra,
Welcome to the GuideStar Community.
How may I assist you?
Hi, Last year a lady in PA tried to start another non profit with our same
name after seeing us in a National Magazine. We hired a lawyer and she had
to change the name due to trademark infringement. Her non profit is listed
right under ours in GuideStar and we would like it to be removed as no one
can have the same name due to our trademark. It will also raise red flags
to potential donors. The name is Purpose Farm. Please remove and if you
would be so kind as to email when it is complete. Thanks!
