YourCause is partnering with Haus des Stiftens to manage charitable organizations based in Germany. As part of this partnership, NPOconnect is transitioning vetting ownership to Haus des Stiftens within NPOconnect. Any German nonprofits and charities currently active in the system will need to reclaim your organization's profile in NPOconnect using the steps below. You should receive an email communication if this applies to your organization.
Ongoing communications regarding your giving eligibility will come from a representative of Haus des Stiftens moving forward. See the International Processing Partners resource for more information about their onboarding process.
Note: If you are not currently an administrator for your organization, you will need to create an account before you can claim your organization. Learn more.
