How to Claim Your Nonprofit Organization's Community

Anybody can create a fundraiser in HuTerra, but nonprofit administrators gain additional functionality when you claim your nonprofit organization's Community. It's quick and easy. HuTerra processes nonprofit Community claims manually to protect your organization. 

Claiming your nonprofit’s Community gives you administrator access so you can
  • Share your nonprofit’s stories, events, and goals with supporters.
  • Upload pictures and videos.
  • Energize donors and supporters.
  • Create fundraisers to meet your goals.

Requirements for Claiming a Qualified Organization

The following criteria must be met in order to claim a nonprofit organization’s Community:

  • You must be an authorized representative of the organization.
  • The organization must be tax-exempt under IRS code, Section 501(c); classified as a religious or faith-based organization; or a small charity that is not required to file with the IRS. Qualifying organizations are preloaded into HuTerra based on IRS and GuideStar data.
  • The organization must not be classified as a private, non-operating Foundation.
