If I publish our current profile, will this demote our status from Gold to Bronze? Can I add to the profile after it is published for better standings? Ideally we would like to be Platinum. Thank you for your time and assistance.
Good Morning Reanna,
Thank you for contacting GuideStar.
If you publish your organizations profile, it will change you from Gold to Bronze. In order to maintain the Gold seal, you would need to update the Silver level. Click on the following link for instructions to assist you with updating the Silver level: How to Achieve the Silver Level of Participation - Update Financial Documents, Fiscal Year, Revenue, Expenses, and Assets & Liabilities
However, if you would like to publish now and receive the 2018 GuideStar Bronze Seal, you can go back in later and update the Silver section even after you publish. The profile can always be updated more even after you publish, there is no limit to how often you update.
Hope this helps. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
