Thanks for your interest in joining the Good Deeds nonprofit community! Follow the
steps below to start fundraising with our platform:
- Apply to claim your nonprofit’s account and get access to your Good Deeds profile: Simply sign up and apply for access using your nonprofit’s EIN. Please note, Good Deeds uses GuideStar to verify all active 501(c)(3) nonprofits and reviews all applications for adherence to our eligibility requirements. If you haven’t claimed your GuideStar account, you’ll need to take that first step in order to receive donations through Good Deeds. You can submit your application to GuideStar here, and once approved, return to Good Deeds to continue claiming your account. Keep in mind, the GuideStar application review time is 2-3 business days.
- Customize your nonprofit profile: After your nonprofit is approved, make sure to customize your nonprofit profile. Your branded nonprofit page will help you quickly connect with potential and existing supporters. Use this as an opportunity to communicate your mission, your values, and how you plan to use the funds you raise.
- Set up your donation payout account: Good Deeds disburses payments to nonprofits via direct deposit into your organization’s PayPal account on a schedule you choose. Simply connect your PayPal account in the Nonprofit Portal, and initiate a payout whenever you like, after you’ve raised $25. Please keep in mind that Good Deeds is not responsible for funds deposited into incorrect accounts. Please make sure the PayPal account that is connected is correct, as we are not able to retrieve funds once deposited.
- Engage your Supporters!: There's power in community, and the more your donors save by shopping on Good Deeds, the more money they raise for you. You can share your smart link — your unique, direct link — to drive supporters to fundraise for your nonprofit. It’s the best way to leverage the power of Good Deeds to funnel existing and potential supporters directly to your organization.
Track donations in real time: You can access up-to-date donation tracking on your account dashboard. Once logged in to the Nonprofit Portal, please click Donations in the top left. This will show you all funds raised for your nonprofit via Good Deeds.
