My Cause isn't listed

If your cause is not listed, you are welcome to add your organization to our list!

NOTE: Be sure to conduct a thorough search. Some causes are known by a shortened name (ASPCA) but may be listed by their fuller name (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

We strongly recommend you always perform a careful search for your cause first to avoid duplicate listings.

Your cause qualifies to be listed if it:

  • has a U.S. or Canada mailing address
  • engages in legal activities that benefit the public good does NOT require a cause to be 501(c)-3 or otherwise tax-exempt.  

Whether your cause is large or small, it's welcome here.
We have tried to make listing a cause a simple process.

First- in order to list a new cause, you must register as an individual iGive member.  This is free and only requires an email address, a password of your choice and your zip code.

As a member of, you can list a new cause at any time.

Cause Details Needed:
You'll need to supply a valid mailing address and contact email for your cause so we can contact them with further information (and ensure we know where to send the check!).

Checks must be cut to the listed Cause Name, and we will not accept any cause listings that are just an individual's name.

Some banks will accept variations such as “Cause c/o Jane Doe” or "John Doe Medical/Education/etc. Fund".  You will have to list your cause in a way that is acceptable with your bank.
Causes with similar names, or chapters will need to add a unique distinction, such as "American Cancer Society - Minnesota".
