Even if you aren’t officially registered with Network for Good, your supporters can choose to use our website or one of our partner sites, like Facebook or Google, to make a contribution to your organization. You can also find your organization's listing on Network For Good's website here. As long as your 501(c)3 is listed in Guidestar's database and has not opted out of receiving online donations, it can be eligible to be featured on one of our partners' sites.
Once a donor chooses to donate to your organization through the sites mentioned above, they are officially making a donation to the Network for Good Donor Advised Fund, which then re-grants the donation to your organization when the funds are received. The funds are sent once a month via check to your organization's mailing address listed in Guidestar.org or via EFT if you have already signed up for electronic disbursement through Network for Good. These donors are issued donation receipts by Network for Good or our partners and some of these donors may appear as anonymous to your nonprofit.

Any organization that is designated by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) and is part of the GuideStar database can use Network for Good to receive online donations.
What should I do next?
