Validation Services for US Nonprofits


All domestic charities are automatically eligible with CAF America, however, we take the extra steps of conducting a reputation review on the organization (including using official watchlists and news searches), verifying the organization’s charitable status, and collecting banking details. There is no fee for this service.


Some donors seek to have additional layers of due diligence conducted on US charities. Our Enhanced Validation goes deeper, looking at specific board members and senior staff and collecting a grant purpose for the use of potential funds. The fee to perform this level of compliance on a US charity is: $150.00.
