YourCause has several clients that require an organization to agree to a compliance agreement and complete their affiliations in order for them to qualify for matching funds. Your organization would not be eligible for matching funds from those companies until both of these actions are resolved.
In order to complete these compliances, you must be the administrator for your organization. If you have not registered, please click here to view our Registration Guide.
This can be accessed by going to Administration > Compliance. Once there, click on the blue down arrow, read the compliance agreement and click on "I agree" or "I DO NOT agree".
Compliance Agreements are used by our partner companies to ensure that the companies they are matching to, have agreed to a set standard of terms.
There are clients that have a custom Compliance Agreement and other clients that use the standard YourCause compliance agreements seen in the image above. Typically, the agreement is good for 2 years. We'd send you an email once it's time to renew them,
We recommend that you resolve any outstanding Affirmations. Please note you can also 'Not Agree' to compliance. Doing so may impact your eligibility for some programs.
