Causes is now accepting applications for nonprofits to claim their cause as official. The extra tools nonprofits previously had available in the Nonprofit Partner Center are now found on the dashboard of Official Nonprofit Causes. This means that nonprofits can now manage their Causes presence all in one place: no extra log in, no extra tab to open, just one place to run and learn from your campaigns.
If you haven’t already designated an Official Cause for your organization, follow these easy steps:
1) Start a Community - If you have one, log into the cause which you’d like to mark official
2) Post a Fundraiser Action – On your community page, click "Post an Action" and select Fundraise. Link the fundraiser to your organization’s EIN (if you already have a fundraiser started, go to step 3)
3) Click on “Manage My Cause” – On the bottom right of your admin dashboard, click “Make this your official nonprofit cause.”
4) Click “Claim This Page” and submit your application
Once your application is submitted, please allow 48 hours for it to be approved by Causes (Tip: Sign up with your organization's email to ensure quick approval). After your application is approved, your cause will be marked as official and you’ll have full access to your nonprofit tools. Your Official Cause will be your organization’s Causes community that you will be able to message and run campaigns with moving forward.
Make sure to add someone from your nonprofit as a leader of your Official Nonprofit Cause. This will allow others to access the dashboard to manage your community going forward. Once you've done that, you're all set!
