2020 Nonprofit Certification Instructions
for Federations only

Certification is open to apply for the 2020 Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work Initiative. A charitable federation is a group of voluntary charitable organizations created to supply common fundraising, administrative, and management services to its participating member organizations. Federations must apply for certification every year. A federation and its member organizations are required to meet all of the OP Initiative eligibility criteria.

Federations apply for certification on behalf of themselves and all of their member organizations. This gives each federation the opportunity to identify their member organizations and ensure all of them make the certification listing.
