How do I add my new organization to GiveMN.org?

To be included on GiveMN.org, organizations must be a public charity as described in Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3), except for trusts and private foundations, or a Minnesota school with an active status and assigned NCES code.

To get started, all we will need is your Federal EIN number (if you're a nonprofit) or your Federal NCES number (if you're a public school). Once we receive that, a member of our team will confirm you've been added to the site or will request any additional documentation we may need finish the process.

For a variety of reasons, including issues of inaccurate or incomplete information maintained by the IRS and NCES, some organizations that meet our eligibility criteria are not in the GiveMN database yet. In these situations, organizations may submit information to help@givemn.org evidencing their qualifying status for inclusion on GiveMN.org and TKF grant eligibility.

If you represent an organization that is a registered 501(c)(3) that does not appear on GiveMN.org, please send the organization’s current IRS determination or affirmation letter to help@givemn.org.

If you represent a local affiliate of a central organization that holds a group exemption, please send the following two items to help@givemn.org:
1) the central organization’s current IRS determination or affirmation letter, and
2) the central organization’s most recent IRS filing, listing your local organization as covered by its group exemption.

If you represent a religious or faith-based organization not required to file with the IRS, please send the following three items to help@givemn.org:
1) EIN Issuance Letter from the IRS, and
2) an official denominational listing identifying your religious or faith-based organization, and
3) a letter on official letterhead with organization name, physical address, mailing address (if different), phone number, email address, and website, signed by the head of the organization and requesting inclusion on GiveMN.org.

If you represent a small organization with annual gross receipts less than $5,000, please send the following two items to help@givemn.org:
1) An EIN Issuance Letter from the IRS, and
2) a letter on official letterhead with organization name, physical address, mailing address (if different), phone number, email address, and website, signed by the head of the organization and requesting inclusion on GiveMN.org.
