If your cause is located in Australia, Canada, Ireland, the UK, or the US, learn how to add your cause to the Causes Portal.
Organizations located outside of those countries must complete registration and validation with our international vetting partner, TechSoup, before a profile can be created in the Causes Portal.
Go to the Causes Portal to search for your organization’s profile. If a profile cannot be found, proceed to steps 1 and 2. If a profile is found, skip to step 3.
Step 1 – Contact our support team and provide the following information about your organization:
- Full legal name
- Full address, including the country
- Email address
- Vision, mission statement, or purpose
Step 2 – Register and verify your organization with TechSoup:
This is a multi-step process that requires you to register a user profile first, then your organization’s profile.
- Go to the TechSoup website.
- Select your organization’s country and preferred language.
- Select Sign Up to Get Validated or Log In to a pre-existing account.
- You may be redirected to one of TechSoup’s regional partners to complete the registration. Select Continue to TechSoup (region).
- Enter your account details to create an account.
After creating an account, TechSoup (or one of their regional partners) will reach out via email to request documentation to validate your organization’s nonprofit/NGO status.
Note: This information is collected and manually reviewed by TechSoup and is not an instantaneous process. Benevity does not have insight into TechSoup’s validation timelines. TechSoup will notify your organization via email once the review has been completed.
Step 3 – Complete your profile in the Benevity Causes Portal
Once you have received notification from TechSoup that your organization status has been validated, it can take up to 5 business days for your profile to be created on the Benevity Causes Portal. After that time has passed, you will receive an email from Benevity with a link to register your new profile and complete the required onboarding steps to qualify for our clients’ workplace giving programs.
