Getting Started

Thank you for your interest in creating a nonprofit profile for your organization on Nonprofit Central!

Nonprofit Central will help you:

  • Increase awareness of your organization among potential donors and new audiences
  • Tell your story and make a case for support
  • Help the community understand the need for your services, solutions and results
  • Drive online donations

Request a Profile for Your Nonprofit:

Please email the following information to [email protected]:

  • Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Organization Name
  • Contact Name (person responsible for completing the profile)
  • Contact Email
  • Contact Phone Number
  • IRS 501(c)(3) determination letter

After your request is received, you will receive a confirmation email with your username and password to get you started.

Criteria to Start a Profile:

  • IRS 501(c)(3) public charity designated organization*
  • Serve Orange County
  • File an IRS Form 990 or 990EZ

*If you do not file an IRS Form 990 or 990EZ, you must provide at least one year of income statements and balance sheets for your organization. These financial documents must be signed by your Executive Director or Board Chair.

*If you are seeking to highlight a local chapter or affiliate of a national/regional organization, please call the Nonprofit Central team to discuss your situation.

*At this time, we are not profiling organizations with a private foundation designation from the IRS. If you have a question or request, please contact us.

Nonprofit Central coaches are available to support you during the profile development process. Generally, we require that your profile be complete within 3-4 weeks of starting the process. Most nonprofits find that building a profile can take up to 4-6 hours of staff time to complete. Please note that a profile must be complete and reviewed by the Orange County Community Foundation’s staff before it is made viewable to the public. Once a profile is created, it may be updated at any point, with a minimum of once a year.
