On 3 March the Directory of Social Change (DSC) and GuideStar International (GSI) announced that ownership of http://www.guidestar.org.uk, the free public website, and GuideStar Data Services has been transferred from GSI to DSC. DSC is the largest publisher of information for those who work in the voluntary sector in the UK.
Buzz Schmidt, founder of GuideStar and CEO of GSI, is confident that DSC is the right home for GuideStar. ‘It will return GuideStar UK to the ownership of a nationally focused sector leadership organization,’ says Schmidt. ‘National ownership of each national GuideStar is the model GSI encourages throughout the world.’
