Claiming your nonprofit is a key step in getting started with findCRA and getting the most value out of your organization’s alignment with CRA. The claiming process is easy and can be completed in just a few minutes. Once you’ve created your findCRA user account and are logged in, follow the steps below to claim your nonprofit’s profile on findCRA.
Step 1: After logging in, click one of the “Claim Nonprofit” buttons.
Tip: If you are not logged in or have not created a user account, you can also start the claiming process from findCRA’s company website at findCRA.com. Just click the “Claim Nonprofit” button in the top right corner of any page and you’ll be prompted to either log in or create a user account before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2: Click the “Get Started” button.
Step 3: Search for your nonprofit using its Employer Identification Number (EIN).
Your nonprofit’s EIN is a nine-digit number assigned by the IRS. It can be found on your organization’s IRS Form 990 (or equivalent form), its IRS Determination Letter or on other IRS forms and web pages. For help finding or confirming your nonprofit’s EIN, you can lookup your organization’s info using the IRS’s website.
Step 4: Acknowledge the terms and conditions and click the “Claim this Nonprofit” button.
For a detailed guide on what to do if your nonprofit is not found (meaning we don’t currently have a profile for it on the platform) or if the profile has already been claimed, refer to the applicable article linked below:
