GuideStar offers lawyers' service

The online charity database GuideStar UK is to offer a new service for charity lawyers as part of its plan to become self-financing within the next 18 months.

The Legal Intelligence Service will offer due diligence reports on all 167,000 registered charities. The reports will include trustee names, charitable status and objectives and a snapshot of the financial position of organisations.

GuideStar is developing new income streams because current funding from private philanthropic sources will run out this summer.

David Brocklebank, chief executive of GuideStar, admitted the target was ambitious but said the company could support itself by marketing in-depth data reports on charities to stakeholders.
