Our organization has officially changed its name with the office of the secretary of state of Texas. How can we update this on Guidestar? How long does it take if we can provide documentation?
Thank you for contacting GuideStar.

Actually, our name that is registered with the IRS has been legally changed to Centro Infantil de los Angeles. It does not however reflect on our profile yet, so this is what I would like to update. Also, Casa de los Angeles, which is another listing under our account has been dissolved and all assets donated to Centro Infantil de los Angeles. I would like to close the Casa de los Angeles listing on Guidestar and all other platforms for which Guidestar provides information such as Just Give, Amazon Smile, etc.
Please share EINs for both organizations.
Thank you for sharing the EIN numbers for your organizations.
We are unable to change the name of your organization that is registered with the IRS. GuideStar receives updates from the IRS on a monthly basis. Once the IRS updates the name of your organization on the IRS Business Master File, we will receive that update from the IRS.
As for EIN 36-4358613, GuideStar does not remove organizations from our database. However, organizations that have been removed from the IRS Business Master File for six consecutive months or more will be hidden from the GuideStar public report page. Once your organization has been removed from the IRS Business Master File for six months, basic registered users will no longer be able to view your organizations profile. In the meantime, I have removed the Collaboration (opportunity to appear on partner sites) for this organization, thus they will not be able to receive donations.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance or have any other questions.
For the organization registered with the IRS, has the information that I have updated over the past month been shared with other organizations? Thank you for your help.
You are very welcome, happy to help.
The updated name change and other information for EIN 20-1284967 has been updated on our partner sites.
Have a good day!
