Philanthropic Research, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) public charity founded in 1994. PRI's mission is to revolutionize philanthropy and nonprofit practice with information. PRI does business under the name "GuideStar" and operates the GuideStar Web site to deliver nonprofit information.

GuideStar Reports are Web pages displaying information on single nonprofit organizations. The amount of information available on these mini-Web sites depends on each organization's participation level.
