If you have a nonprofit organization and wish to verify your Givebutter account, please see our guide to verifying your nonprofit.

In the United States, those who donate to tax-exempt charities have the opportunity to write off their charitable donations on their taxes (with some exceptions). This is a huge win for charities and donors alike – it incentivizes individuals to support charitable causes by allowing them to deduct donations and pay less in taxes.

However, there are many things that need to be clarified regarding what types of donations are deductible and when. Givebutter's nonprofit verification standards ensure that:

  1. The organization holds tax-exempt, charitable organization status with the IRS and can accept tax-deductible donations

  2. The organization is who they say they are

Thanks to this system, donors on Givebutter can support verified nonprofits with confidence and peace of mind, knowing that their charitable dollars are going to exactly the right place.

Givebutter's nonprofit verification badge is only intended to verify an organization's legitimacy as a registered tax-exempt charitable organization. Givebutter does not guarantee that donations made to verified nonprofits are eligible for a tax deduction. We strongly recommend that you consult an accountant about your eligibility for taking any tax deductions.
