Step 1: Go to iGiveCatholic.org
First, you'll need to navigate to your Arch/Diocese's landing page to complete your registration. If you aren't sure of the URL for your Arch/Diocese go to www.iGiveCatholic.org. On this page you will see an option to "Apply Now".
*If you do know the url to your Arch/Diocese #iGiveCatholic site, skip down to Step 3.
Step 2: Select your Archdiocese or Diocese from the list of Participants
Step 3: You have arrived at the #iGiveCatholic site for your Arch/Diocese
Click the "Apply Now" button on the main landing page to begin the registration process.
Step 4: Search for your Ministry, School or Parish
After clicking the "Apply Now" button you'll be prompted to search for your organization on GiveGab. Once you've entered the name of your ministry, school, or parish in the search bar, click the "Search" button below it.
If your organization has participated in #iGiveCatholic before, 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 #iGiveCatholic.
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 5: Request Admin Access
This next step is only necessary if you are not yet an administrator to your organization's profile. When you click the "Participate" button you may be brought to a page that lists the current administrator(s) to your organization's profile and prompts you to request access.
You will need to gain admin access before you can complete your registration.
Step 6: Add Your Organization
If you clicked the "Add My Organization" button, and you already have admin access, 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 #iGiveCatholic 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 7: Complete Registration Survey
After completing the steps above you'll be directed to the final page to complete your #iGiveCatholic registration. Here you'll need to answer the required survey questions before finalizing your organization's registration for #iGiveCatholic
Once the survey is complete you'll receive an email confirmation and automatically be redirected to your #iGiveCatholic dashboard on GiveGab where you can begin customizing your #iGiveCatholic profile. If you are returning to #iGiveCatholic this year, you'll be immediately presented with the option to copy a profile from a previous year OR start from scratch. If you opt to copy over your profile, make sure to make updates to the content so that it's relevant for this year!
In the meantime, your Diocese will review your application for approval - your dashboard will update with your "Approved" status when this is complete. Any questions? Reach out to your Diocese for more information.
