To locate the charity you want to donate to, use the search feature on the JustGive website. Try inputting the full name of the charity (e.g. “American Red Cross”) into the search box.
For more specific searches, use the advanced search tool to locate your charity in our database by city, state, zip code, EIN and keyword.
If you are still having problems, get the charity’s Employer Identification Number (EIN), also known as their tax ID number (usually available on the charity’s website). Use that in the search box on JustGive to quickly find your charity.
If you still cannot find your charity, they may not be an eligible 501(c)(3) charity or may have opted-out of receiving donations through JustGive. Note that in some cases, a charity, such as a school PTA for example, may not be a registered 501(c)(3) charity. As a result, they would not be in the JustGive database.
Also, some charities may no longer be eligible for donations according to the IRS for various reasons, or they may have opted out of receiving donations through websites like JustGive. If a charity is no longer eligible for donation opted-out of receiving donations, they will not be available on JustGive.
