Editing Your NPOconnect Profile
Charity admins have the ability to customize their nonprofit profile by uploading a logo, entering a mission statement, entering a website, and sharing contact information.
In addition, with the new platform, you can now edit affiliations, add searchable tags, customize the display address, and opt out of giving or volunteering if your charity is not accepting financial and/or volunteer contributions.
Customizing your NPOconnect profile can maximize visibility and help to draw attention to your page. Changes you are able to make to your NPOconnect Profile are:
- Display Name
- Mission Statement
- Contact Information and Website
- Display Address
- Giving/Volunteering Opt Out
- To access your organization's information and make changes to any of the above features, select 'Administration' from the left navigation panel, then select 'Profile' from the available options.
- From the Profile page, you can edit several sections related to the public profile of data you share. See below for images on what you can update in the Profile section:
Change Display Name:
Changes to your display name will update the name that is presented to prospective donors.
Note: In order to make this change permanently to your account and to have this change reflected on checks, we suggest reaching out to Guidestar, or your respective Registration Authority, to update your name.
Update Logo:Logos help donors and supporters recognize your organization. Select the blue pencil to upload an image as your logo. The logo should be square, clear (not to be blurry) and 150x150px.
Add Mission Statement:Mission statements are the key drivers for nonprofit operations, therefore it's critical to share your mission with those who support you. Simply enter your mission statement into the Mission Statement field.
Enter Contact Information and a Website:Enter contact information and a Website URL for your prospective donors to learn more about you, or to find other opportunities to help your organization.
Update Affiliations:Affiliations are used by our partner companies to help them find organizations that are a fit for their own CSR mission. Select all that apply to your organization or any of your ongoing programs.
Assign Tags:Include tags that could help donors find this chapter of your organization. Tags can be geographic, program-related, event-related, or simply acronyms by which your organization is known.
Update Display Address:Display address should reflect the physical location that your organization resides and provides services from.
Opt Out of Giving:If your organization does NOT accept donations, has halted operations or has closed its doors permanently, indicate that your nonprofit is no longer accepting donations by selecting 'Edit' next to 'Allows Giving'. Opting-out of giving will hide your organization from donor's search results within our CSRconnect platform.
Opt Out of Volunteering:If your organization does NOT accept volunteers, has halted its operations, or has closed its doors permanently, indicate that your nonprofit is no longer accepting volunteers by selecting 'Edit' next to 'Allows Volunteering'. Opting out of volunteering will make your organization unavailable for event creation or submission by either fellow nonprofit admins nor CSR participants.
