How do I know if my organization is eligible to participate?
All organizations that are recognized as a 501(c)(3) Public Charity and who file an IRS form 990 or 990 postcard (except private foundations who file a 990-PF) and serve the populations of Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison and Rappahannock counties are eligible to participate in the Give Local Piedmont campaign. Organizations must be in good standing with the IRS and with the general public.
All participating organizations must complete registration by March 15, 2019 to be eligible.
Is there a cost for my nonprofit to participate?
There is no charge to register your organization. However, credit card fees and transaction fees will be deducted from the donations received by each nonprofit. Organizations receiving $1,000 or more in total donations will also be charged a 2% administrative fee. Participation in Give Local Piedmont training sessions is free. Attendance is not mandatory, but is highly recommended if you have not previously participated in Give Local Piedmont.
