If your organization recently received a request to become vetted or have already initiated the process of completing your Domestic Vetting application here, you may have questions about what this means. Explore the resources below to learn more about vetting and why it is required as well as overviews of YourCause and the Blackbaud Giving Fund (BBGF).
What is vetting?
To expand the reach of our corporate donors, YourCause has adopted the Blackbaud Giving Fund (BBGF) Donor Advised Giving Program. We refer to this evaluation process as vetting, and it is essential to our charitable giving model. BBGF exercises appropriate discretion, control, and oversight over both funds and funding decisions as required by U.S. law.
Who is YourCause, and what is the Blackbaud Giving Fund (BBGF)?
YourCause coordinates employee engagement with nonprofits for Fortune 500 companies. We have processed over $520 million in donations to charitable organizations through gift matching, philanthropy, and corporate grant programs.
The Blackbaud Giving Fund (BBGF) is a U.S. incorporated, 501(c )3 not-for-profit organization that powers philanthropy by connecting donors and charities. We partner with technology platforms and manage a donor-advised fund to receive donations securely and efficiently from generous donors and deliver grants to charities making an impact around the world.
Our charitable giving model focuses on the needs of donors and charities which allows us to maximize the impact of charitable giving.
How does connecting with YourCause help your organization?
The value of having your charity plugged into the YourCause + Blackbaud platform is significant, as it will expand the reach and visibility of your mission to countless potential donors, corporate matches, or grants. If enhanced access to resources, donations, and visibility would benefit your organization, we are here to help you get set up!
How can my organization get vetted?
Your organization can either initiate the vetting process yourself by having an Administrator complete a Domestic Vetting Application, or another organization may request that your organization become vetted so that they can donate to you.
