The lev­els are assigned accord­ing to how much infor­ma­tion is vol­un­tar­i­ly pro­vid­ed to GuideStar by the non­prof­it about their organization.

GuideStar gath­ers ini­tial data from the IRS, which col­lects that data from all orga­ni­za­tions through­out the coun­try via tax forms. Non­prof­its can then pro­vide addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion to GuideStar to raise their pro­file level.

For instance, Bronze lev­el requires basic infor­ma­tion such as the mis­sion state­ment, descrip­tion of pro­grams, and geo­graph­ic region served.

Plat­inum requires the addi­tion of fur­ther data and expla­na­tion of finances, goals and strate­gies, and progress and results (as deter­mined by the nonprofit).

It’s easy! Vis­it the GuideStar web­site and get started.

They com­prise the Nation­al Tax­on­o­my of Exempt Enti­ties (NTEE), a sys­tem designed to cat­e­go­rize the cen­tral pur­pos­es and caus­es of non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions, which, as defined by the IRS, are exempt from pay­ing tax­es on their income.

For more infor­ma­tion about the NTEE, vis­it the Nation­al Cen­ter for Char­i­ta­ble Sta­tis­tics web­site.

These are dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories of tax-exempt orga­ni­za­tions that are list­ed in the tax code, pri­mar­i­ly in the 501© sec­tion. In oth­er words, these are the cat­e­gories the IRS uses to deter­mine the par­tic­u­lar legal and tax sta­tus of any nonprofit.

The bulk of non­prof­its are cat­e­go­rized as 501(c)(3) orga­ni­za­tions, which are pub­lic char­i­ties and pri­vate foun­da­tions. For more on how the IRS defines char­i­ta­ble pur­pos­es,” vis­it this page on the IRS web­site.

Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion of Jack­son Hole’s Non­prof­it Direc­to­ry is intend­ed to serve donors and non­prof­its in our area, so the data­base is lim­it­ed to non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions that serve Teton County.

Nation­wide search­es, how­ev­er, can be done through GuideStar’s main, pub­licly avail­able data­base.

First, as always, check your spelling when doing searches!

But sec­ond, it’s pos­si­ble the orga­ni­za­tion you’re look­ing for is a sub­sidiary of a larg­er par­ent orga­ni­za­tion. If the sub­sidiary isn’t reg­is­tered with the IRS – the pri­ma­ry source of data in this direc­to­ry – as an inde­pen­dent non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion locat­ed in our area but instead oper­ates under the legal tax sta­tus of a par­ent orga­ni­za­tion head­quar­tered else­where, they won’t appear in this directory.

Third, if the orga­ni­za­tion you’re look­ing for is a church or oth­er reli­gious orga­ni­za­tion, it’s pos­si­ble they are not offi­cial­ly reg­is­tered with the IRS.

Church­es and oth­er reli­gious orga­ni­za­tions that meet the stan­dards of oth­er tax-exempt orga­ni­za­tions auto­mat­i­cal­ly receive tax-exempt sta­tus with­out hav­ing to reg­is­ter with the IRS. This means church­es don’t have the bur­dens of paper­work that oth­er non­prof­its do, but it also means the IRS doesn’t nec­es­sar­i­ly have pub­licly avail­able data on these church­es unless they decide them­selves to reg­is­ter with the IRS.

If you can’t find an orga­ni­za­tion you’re look­ing for in our direc­to­ry, try search­ing GuideStar’s nation­al data­base.
