How do I list my cause with

We have tried to make listing a cause a simple process.

First- in order to list a new cause, you must register 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.

Your cause qualifies to be listed if it is:

  • located in the U.S. or Canada
  • engaging 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.
Once you are a member you can add a causeWe strongly recommend you always perform a careful search for your cause first to avoid duplicate listings. If you don't find it listed already, just click "Add a New Cause" and fire away. 
Needed Information:
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".
