Q: How do I know if my organization is even eligible to receive support?
A: To request a charitable donation, your organization must be a federally tax-exempt, section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, school, library, or public agency. Only organizations with a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) designation, as determined by the Internal Revenue Service, will be considered.
