Our foundation name in GuideStar does not match the IRS website. I thought GuideStar pulled this information from the IRS. How do I go about getting the name corrected to match the IRS?

I apologize Robin. GuideStar receives all its information from the IRS on a monthly basis. As of our last update from the IRS on April 9th, the organization is appearing on the IRS Business Master File as Reese-Shackelford Foundation.
We should be receiving our May update from the IRS within the next week. If the IRS has updated the organization's name on the Business Master File, we will receive that update from the IRS.
In the meantime, I would be happy to change the name of the organization as it appears on GuideStar. Is the new name The Shackelford Family Foundation?
The name should be The Shackelford Family Foundation. Below is what I found searching the IRS site. Is this not connected to the master file?
