GuideStar Pro is being used at my organization to find concise data from 990s of funders we are prospecting. It is most useful when used in conjunction with FDO, but GuideStar Pro alone can also be helpful albeit take more time to use. It is being used in Development and addresses issues finding information about funder giving preferences (when they lack a website) or finding out if an organization is still in existence. We also use the GuideStar seal on our website to show our commitment to transparency.
  • Identifying information from funder 990s
  • Gives credence to transparency claims
  • None - anything missing from GuideStar Pro can be found in FDO, also from Candid
GuideStar Pro is well suited in two scenarios: when you want to demonstrate your organization's commitment to transparency (through the seals) and when you know what you're looking for when searching through 990s. Basically, if you can mine a 990 well, GuideStar Pro is perfect for you. If you are new to the grant-seeking industry and need more guidance/clearer information already mined for you, then GuideStar Pro is likely to be overwhelming.
Any support I've ever had to get from them was quick and professional. Their online guides/help docs are also easy to read.

GuideStar Pro is an essential tool for researching nonprofit organizations and foundations. We primarily use GuideStar for easy access to organizations' Form 990 that contains valuable information and can be used when researching new granting foundations.
  • Easy to use search tool.
  • Extensive database.
  • Most 990s are typically a few years behind.
  • Organization profiles are only as complete as the organization makes them.
GuideStar Pro is my platform of choice for pulling up an organization's Form 990 when researching a grant. I have other paid platforms that allow me to look at 990s, but I prefer GuideStar for its user interface and that it only takes a couple of clicks to get the information you want. They make it quick and easy to get the information that I need to do my research.
I have not had any issues with GuideStar Pro where I needed personal support. They have helpful tutorials and overall the platform is very user friendly.
