How to Nominate a Charity

WHAT KINDS OF CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS CAN I NOMINATE?

To be considered for an award, an organization must meet the following criteria: 

  • It must be a non-profit recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization. 
  • It must be located in the Elmhurst or the Greater Chicagoland area. The majority of the funds must be allocated to providing services in this geographic area. 
  • It must be willing to send a representative to our next meeting to share how the money was or will be spent, and it must agree not to create, sell or distribute a list with our members' contact information, and agree not to solicit our members directly for further contributions. 

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHARITY SATISFIES THE CRITERIA TO BE NOMINATED?

If you are not certain whether your charity is a 501(c)(3) organization, call your charity and request a copy of their letter from the IRS granting 501(c)(3) status. 

You can also visit the IRS website to verify that your charity is a 501(c)(3) organization.
