Step 1: Go to GiveBigKern.Org
From GiveBigKern.Org click the "Apply Now" button on the main landing page to begin the application process.
Step 2: Search for Your Organization
After clicking the "Apply Now" button you'll be prompted to search for your organization. Once you've entered your organization's name or EIN in the search bar, click the "Search" button below it.
If your organization has participated in a previous Give Big Kern or has fundraised on GiveGab, click the "Participate" button next to your organization's name. After clicking "Participate" you'll be directed to login to your GiveGab account to finish the registration process for Give Big Kern.
If your organization does not appear in the search results, don't fret! Just click the "Add My Organization" button to get set up and continue with the registration process.
Step 3: Add Your Organization
If you clicked the the "Add My Organization" button you'll be directed to this registration form where you'll be prompted to enter some basic information about your organization. This is also where you'll create your personal login to access and edit your organization's Give Big Kern profile. You can add additional administrators to your organization's account once you've registered. Once this section is complete click the "Continue" button.
Step 4: Complete Application Survey
After completing the steps above you'll be directed to the final page before your registration for Give Big Kern is complete. Here you'll need to answer the required survey questions before finalizing your organization's application for Give Big Kern.
Once the survey is complete you'll receive an email confirmation and automatically be redirected to your Give Big Kern dashboard on GiveGab where you can begin customizing your Give Big Kern profile. If you participated last year, you'll have the option to quickly copy over your 2018 profile and make edits from there!
Once submitted, your application will automatically go into a "Pending" status. After your application is reviewed by the Give Big Kern team, you will receive an email notification and you will see your status change to "Approved" on your dashboard.
If the Give Big Kern team needs more information in order to approve your organization to participate, your application status will change to "Needs More Review." If your organization does not meet the requirements to participate in Give Big Kern as stated on the FAQ page and as determined by the Give Big Kern team, your status will change to "Ineligible."
