Buzz Schmidt on GuideStar's first ten years

This month’s Alliance Extra magazine features an interview with Buzz Schmidt, founder of GuideStar, the web-based database of nonprofit organisations’ information.

After ten years of operating in the USA, GuideStar has now spawned a UK version, and could follow this with sites in India, South Africa, Hungary, Germany, Israel and Palestine. The service aims to provide good-quality information about a large number of a country’s civil society organisations in accessible and searchable form and free of charge.

In his interview with Alliance Extra, Buzz Schmidt, GuideStar’s founder, explains what GuideStar can offer the nonprofit sector, and how the organisation faces issues such as quality of data and who will fund its future development.
