My 501c3 was originally incorrectly classified as a private foundation. Since then, I filed for a letter of determination and it has been changed to a public charity. How do I get my profile to reflect that change?
Good Morning Sarah,
Thank you for contacting the GuideStar Community.
GuideStar receives all its information on 501c nonprofit organization's directly from the IRS on a monthly basis excluding January. We just received our February update from the IRS on Tuesday this week and will receive our next update from the IRS around this same time in March. Because this information comes from the IRS, we are unable to change or alter the information.
You may want to contact the IRS to find out when your organization information will change from a Private Foundation to a Public Charity on the IRS Business Master File. 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 updates this on the Business Master File, we will receive that update from the IRS.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
