Sign up for these first
These programs require no effort on your part once you sign up. You enroll your organization, then ask your supporters to use the program. Once THEY enroll, they don’t have to do anything else. Your group must be a 501(c) 3 to use these programs except for igive.com.
Before you start, get the following together so you won't be running around like a nutcase. In fact, while you're at it, print off a couple of extra copies of your 501(c)3 Letter of Determination and stick that and copies of the other stuff in a fundraising folder.
I wrote my EIN and Tennessee Charitable Organization's number on the outside of the folder, since you'll need those often. Hey, make it easier to do, you'll do more fundraising, right?
So -- grab the following and let's get started.
Copy of 501(c)3 Letter of Determination (file and hardcopy)
First Page of Organization Bank Statement (file)
Voided Check (hardcopy for bank info)
