E-mail blast

Thank you for your interest in being a certified nonprofit in the 2018-19 Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work campaign. When certified, your nonprofit will be listed as one of the participating nonprofits in campaign materials and on our website, and you will be invited to our annual kick-off event in August.

Certification will open on January 15, 2018 with all applications due by February 28, 2018. Nonprofits MUST certify every year.

Please note: qualified charities must be a valid 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and in good standing with the Registry of Charitable Trusts to operate or to solicit for charitable purposes in California.  An unregistered charity or a registered charity that is delinquent, suspended or revoked is not in good standing. (Gov. Code, § 12599.6, subd. (f)(1); Cal. Code Regs., tit 11, §999.9.4.)  A charity that is not in compliance with the registration and reporting requirements listed above, will not be certified in the Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work Initiative.  Go here to check your status. 

You will receive periodic updates until certification opens on January 15. Questions? Contact OPcertification@uwccr.org
