Validate organizations using Charity Check

The Charity Check API serves as a validation tool to understand the status and eligibility of a nonprofit organization. The API allows you to integrate this validation tool into your grantmaking workflow to:

  • Ensure charities are compliant within key databases including IRS Publication 78, IRS Business Master File, Internal Revenue Bulletin, Automatic Revocation of Exemption, and OFAC Specially Designated National list.
  • Gather additional details to support decision-making, such as organization type, deductibility limitations, religious organization status, revocations, and more.
  • Download a date and timestamped charity check PDF document to archive for due diligence via Charity Check PDF API.
  • Confirm organizations' nonprofit status with California state authorities, including the Attorney General’s Registry of Charitable Trusts and Franchise Tax Board.
