The fastest way to get going is to scroll to the bottom of the site and under the Non-Profit Organizers section, select "Non-Profit Sign Up". Search for your charity by name, keywords or Tax ID (the easiest way is to search by your Tax ID (EIN).
On the next page, you'll fill out your contact information, and then choose whether you want to be on the Tre or the Fiver account. With the Tre, we guarantee you'll see no more than 3% in fees including credit card fees. In other words, you'll keep $97 out of every $100 raised. The Tre costs $50/month but we'll give it to you for free for the first three months. If you choose the Fiver, we'll guarantee your fees will be no more than 5% including credit card fees. Or in other words, you'll keep at least $95 out of every $100.* This plan is free. To learn more, check it out Here.
In order to protect your charity's privacy and security, we'll contact you through the phone number listed with GuideStar or on your Charity's website or via email that we get from your Charity's website to give you a super secret Pin Number which you'll use to complete the Charity Sign Up process. All of this can be done in about 2 minutes and then your charity can start your own fundraising campaigns or events, and start turning your grassroots supporters into grassroots fundraisers. The super secret Pin Number is needed if you want to have access to your charity donor report as well as when you need to set up banking information and choose between your preferred payment/withdrawal processor.
