How do I select a charity to raise money for my event?

The charities on CrowdRise are US-based, 501(c)3 nonprofits provided to us by a third party service called GuideStar that collects charity information from the IRS and the charities themselves. If you're trying to select a charity to raise money for and you can't find 'em, the best thing to do is figure out the exact name of the charity or, even better, find out their Tax ID (EIN) number on the charity's website or a quick Google search (that's what I do). You can choose from over 1.5 million charities. 

When you create your Event, you can require teams to raise money for a single, specific charity or you can allow teams to fundraise for multiple charities. To require everyone to raise money for one charity that you choose, click the EDIT EVENT tab and under the ADVANCED SETTINGS dropdown check the box that reads “Require all Event Teams to fundraise for a Single Charity” and then click the SAVE button. If you want to allow teams to fundraise for multiple charities or the charity of their choice, don't check this box. Contact with any questions or help setting up and executing your fundraising event.
