Name changes on GuideStar can only be performed by requesting a change through the IRS. They can, however, add a new name as a "doing business as (dba)" name if you follow these steps:
Register your organization on GuideStar
A Guidestar Profile example:
Fax letterhead, a website page, advertisements, IRS forms, or a state letter showing the new name to GuideStar at 1-757-229-8912. Include a telephone number or e-mail address where GuideStar can reach you if they have questions.
Once you update your nonprofit report, GuideStar's Customer Service will change your organization's name. If you elect NOT to register or update your nonprofit report, the name change can only be performed by the IRS. This process can take several weeks.
To request a name change through the IRS, file a blank form 990 with the "name change" block checked, or contact the IRS for more information at 877-829-5500. The IRS call center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Eastern time. You may write to them at the following address:
