Should a church update profile?
Thank you for contacting GuideStar!
Yes.. we encourage ALL nonprofits to update their profile.
There are 3 major reasons to keep one’s GuideStar Profile record up to date: 1. Visitors to GuideStar, and 2. Visitors to GuideStar’s 60+ partner websites/platforms, and 3. Grant management systems.
2.GuideStar data goes out to more than 60 partner websites and platforms. So if your record isn't up-to-date, the top 8 Donor Advised Funds (Fidelity, Schwab, Vanguard…), AmazonSmile, Network for Good, JustGive, and dozens and dozens more sites will have inaccurate and incomplete information about your organization.
3. Between GuideStar's 7M visitors and the millions more who traffic the 60+ partner websites--hubs of nonprofit data--it's in a nonprofit's best interest to keep their GuideStar Profile record regularly updated. The GuideStar Profile data is now the repository for grant data for the largest grants management systems. Organizations applying for a grant via these systems can prepopulate their applications with GuideStar Profile data thereby saving hours of administrative time filling out the same set of fields like address, mission, programs, people, financials, etc.
