Having the organization’s EIN (employer identification number) is the key to quick and exact research about a nonprofit or charity.
We suggest two ways to find an organization’s EIN,
- Get the EIN from the organization or its website or written fundraising materials. We encourage organizations to prominently show their EINs. Read more.
- Go to the CharityCheck101.org directory search page. Follow the instructions there, searching based on the organization’s name. The “Goldilocks” name search (just right) will be neither too precise nor too vague.
Every IRS-recognized nonprofit and charity (more than 1.5 million) can be found at CharityCheck101.org.
