To be eligible to participate in Give 716, nonprofits must be qualified as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public charity in one of the following counties: Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Wyoming, Genesee, Orleans or Allegany county.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
In order to make the process easier, please gather ALL required documents and information BEFORE starting your registration. In addition to basic information about your organization, its mission, and key contacts, please be prepared to provide:
- Your organization's IRS Determination Letter
- Your organization's EIN number
- If your EIN/nonprofit is already in the system, you will not be able to use this inquiry form and need to log into your existing account. For assistance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Your organization's most current year of completed financials such as the Form 990, Form 990-EZ, etc.
We will review the information submitted to ensure your organization is a qualified 501(c)(3). If your organization is approved to participate, you will receive an email confirmation inviting you to login, connect your Stripe account and finish creating your profile!
Important Note: We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and for any reason, to decline to permit any organization, regardless of its current 501(c)(3) status, to participate in Give 716.
Email Reminder: We encourage you to use a 'name specific' or 'unique' email address and not a 'generic' email (for example: admin@, info@, events@, director@). Why? Our email system (MailChimp) will not send communication to these types of addresses and you will miss out on pertinent information you need to be successful with Give 716 fundraising.
