Step 1: Go to www.thegreatgive.org
From www.thegreatgive.org click the "Apply Now" button on the main landing page to begin the registration 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 The Great Give® in a previous year or has fundraised on GiveGab prior to registering, click the "Participate" button next to your organization's name. After clicking "Participate" you will be directed to login to your GiveGab account to finish the registration process of The Great Give®.
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 on the "Add My Organization" button you'll be directed to the 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 The Great Give® 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 the Registration Survey
After completing the steps above you'll be directed to the final page before your registration for The Great Give® is complete. Here you'll need to answer the required survey questions before finalizing your organization's registration for The Great Give®.
Once the survey is complete you'll receive an email confirmation and automatically be redirected to your The Great Give® dashboard on GiveGab where you can begin customizing your The Great Give® profile. If you participated last year, you'll be able to copy over your profile from 2020 so you don't have to start from scratch!
Once you've submitted your registration form, The Great Give® team will need to verify your registration status. On your ADMIN dashboard, you will be able to check your approval status. Upon submitting the registration form, all organizations will be marked as "Pending". If you are not eligible to participate, or we require additional information, you will receive an email from GiveGab and/or The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.
If your organization is not currently able to accept donations through the GiveGab platform, this same area of your admin dashboard will notify you of your donation status.
