How do I complete the Self-Certification Declaration?

Many of Benevity’s clients require organizations to Self-Certify annually against common eligibility requirements to qualify for inclusion in their giving or matching programs.

The declaration gives organizations the chance to clarify their internal policies regarding where funds will be directed. The answers you provide will be collected only by those clients who require the declaration and will then be aligned to their specific program requirements.

The Self-Certification Declaration is valid for one year from the date of completion and needs to be renewed on an annual basis. If at anytime you'd like to amend your Self-Certification, you will have to submit a new declaration.

Follow the steps below to complete the Self-Certification Declaration:

  1. First, log in to the Causes Portal.
  2. Select ‘Certification’ in the left-hand side menu.
  3. Select the box labeled ‘Create New Self-Certification Declaration’.
  4. Complete the 13 declarations, then click 'Submit'.
