I want to set up our new non-profit:  Youth Biz Academy     501(c)(3) IRS approved

It is not in the GoFundMe directory by name or EIN. How can we be added to the directory in order to set up a charity fundraiser.  Thank you, Larry

Hi @Larry Stelley welcome to the GoFundMe Community. Can you let me know what your EIN is, so we can look into this a bit more?

Hi @Larry Stelley it looks like your org’s 501c3 status is pretty recent, which is why this is being uncooperative. You’ll need to enroll in PayPal Giving Fund in order to have the charity added to our database. The good news is that enrolling helps get you the funds much faster than they would otherwise, so it’s honestly what I’d recommend doing anyway.

I’m going to go ahead and create an email ticket for you with one of our charity specialists, who can help walk you through this process.

I am set up with PayPal now. GoFundMe still does not recognize Youth Biz Academy. I appreciate additional help. Thanks. LS
