Supporting Your Park Organization Online

For the park “friends,” conservancies and advocacy groups out there, you may have heard of the website, Guidestar.org, where donors can learn about non-profit organizations.

Increasingly, those wishing to give money to their preferred causes are researching groups through on-line resources that can give them access to IRS 990 forms and the like.

Many organizations may not know that they can register themselves on Guidestar and submit information, stories, photos and videos about their work. For visitors to these pages, even just a bit more of information might persuade them to give.

If you’re part of a private park organization, here’s some more information on how you might use Guidestar.
