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, TransFirst. 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 TransFirst for review and processing
Step 2: Complete Application and Sign Agreements: Within 24_hours after submitting the initial application, you will receive an email from Click & Pledge. The email will include a hyperlink to an online application to open a TransFirst merchant account. You will need to complete the online application and use your mouse to sign the application.

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 person and each legal entity that opens a banking account. This information includes: legal name, date of birth, address, and identification number -- a taxpayer identification number for American citizens (a drivers license or passport) or a government-issued document for noncitizens.
