REGISTRATION STEPS FOR NEW PARTICIPANTS THAT ARE INDEPENDENT NONPROFITS
Please note: Steps 1 - 5 below make up the first part of your registration, which entails opening a merchant account with Click & Pledge's banking electronic payment processing partner provider, ProPay. We strongly recommend reviewing the registration information and steps with the person within your organization who handles your finances and is authorized to open a banking account. Step 6 will register your organization for leaderboard prizes.
Step 1: Fill out and Submit the Click & Pledge Application by clicking the Register Now button below. It will be forwarded to Click & Pledge and ProPay for review and processing. You will be asked to enter your organization and banking account information. Please enter your information carefully. Mistakes can delay the set-up process.
Step 2: Application Review: Click & Pledge will review your application. They will need to confirm your nonprofit status. To do this, they will send you an email requesting additional documents. This includes your:
501c3 Determination Letter from the IRS AND most recently filed Form 990
Nonprofit registration with your state/city/locality
Your title with the organization or a scanned letter (on letterhead) from a director, officer, or trustee, authorizing you to create and maintain a merchant account for the organization.
NOTE: You may reply to the email with these documents or email the documents directly to Click & Pledge at firstname.lastname@example.org
Why is this required? To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, The U.S.A. 2001 Patriot Act, a Federal law, requires that we obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each organization and each legal entity that opens a banking account.
