As part of our commitment to providing accurate information, we put adoption grant organizations through a series of tests to determine whether they belong in our database or on the "Don't Bother List."
One of the key components to the success of our research is our membership in GuideStar. GuideStar is an organization which gathers and publishes information about nonprofit organizations. Their reach is far and wide and their database is broad and deep. With this tool, we regularly investigate nonprofit organizations filings with the IRS to help us determine if the organization is legitimate or not. When we uncover inconsistencies, we make this information available to you.
