Why did I receive donations via the Giving Basket?

This FAQ addresses Give Lively’s role in processing donations through Charity Navigator’s Giving Basket and may not apply to all Give Lively members.

Your organization received a donation because one or more Charity Navigator visitors supported it through the Giving Basket, powered by Give Lively.

Like approximately 1 million other 501(c)(3) public charities and private operating foundations listed on Charity Navigator, your organization is able to receive donations via the Giving Basket because it:

  1. is classified as an eligible foundation type and
  2. is in good standing with the IRS and the California Attorney General’s Registry of Charities and Fundraisers.

Learn about how long it takes to receive donations made through the Giving Basket.

If, for whatever reason, your organization prefers NOT to receive funds through the Giving Basket, please reach out to info@charitynavigator.org and request that the donate button on your organization’s profile be disabled.

What are eligible and ineligible IRS foundation types for nonprofit organizations?

See the lists of eligible and ineligible foundation types for tax-exempt organizations listed on Charity Navigator. 

What does it mean when a nonprofit is delinquent with the California Attorney General’s Registry of Charities and Fundraisers?

When a charitable organization that is required to submit timely, complete, required filings and/or fees to the California Attorney General's Office fails to do so, its status on the California Attorney General's Registry of Charities and Fundraisers is listed as “Delinquent." If the delinquency is not remedied, the organization’s registry status is further changed to “Suspended" and/or “Revoked.”

Importantly, these requirements are applicable to all U.S. nonprofits, not just those headquartered in California. Learn more at https://oag.ca.gov/charities/delinquency.
