Nonprofits can utilize findCRA to educate, equip and empower their organization to open new relationships with banks in their community.
At findCRA, we have developed CRANIA, the Community Reinvestment Act Nonprofit Identification Algorithm, our proprietary algorithm which qualifies IRS-registered nonprofits in comparison to the requirements of the Community Reinvestment Act. Once we have qualified a nonprofit, we create a unique Nonprofit Profile for each organization which is available for banks to search, review or download on Community Qualifier, our online research tool.
The first step to increasing banks’ interest in your nonprofit on findCRA is claiming your nonprofit’s profile. When you claim your nonprofit profile on findCRA, you can add information about your nonprofit’s mission and focus areas, the clients you serve and ways for banks to contact you, including through our online messaging features.
