Step 1: Go to https://www.igivecatholic.org/
Registration for #iGiveCatholic will open on August 16th and will be open until November 3rd! To register, go to https://www.igivecatholic.org/, click the "Apply Now" button on the main landing page to begin the registration process.
Step 2: Select your Arch/Diocese/Foundation from the list of Participants
**If you are a Catholic school, and your Arch/Diocese is participating, please register under the appropriate Arch/Diocese page. Do not register under NCEA!
Step 3: You have arrived at the #iGiveCatholic site for your Arch/Diocese/Foundation!
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, and you are an existing administrator, 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 has participated in #iGiveCatholic before, and you are not an existing administrator, you will need to request access to your organization. When you click the "Participate" button you will 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. You can request access through GiveGab, where they will review and grant access with the appropriate documentation. You can also contact the point person for your Arch/Diocese/Foundation, and they can assist with updating the administrators on your organization's account.
For New Organizations:
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: Add Your Organization
Returning organizations or existing administrators can move ahead to Step 6. If you clicked the "Add My Organization" button, you'll be directed to the registration form 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 6: Complete Registration Survey
If you are a returning organization, or after completing the steps above in Step 5 as a new participant, you'll be directed to the final page to complete your #iGiveCatholic registration application. Here you'll need to answer the available survey questions before finalizing your organization's registration for #iGiveCatholic 2021.
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 Arch/Diocese/Foundation 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.
