CommunitySuite integrates GuideStar Exchange information with Grant processes, designed to streamline and verify the nonprofit status of organizations.The GuideStar Exchange Program is an online database (unaffiliated with the foundation) that allows nonprofits to keep current core data in one place (e.g. board of directors, IRS Form 990, Audited Financial Statements, etc). Each organization has a report; a devoted web page that allows funders and the general public to access the information. There is no cost for nonprofit organizations; any nonprofit can update its report for free. Maintaining an up-to-date GuideStar Exchange Report provides nonprofits the opportunity to connect with current and potential supporters.
