Step 1: Go to https://www.401gives.org/
From https://www.401gives.org/ click the "Register" button on the main landing page to begin the application process.
Step 2: Search for Your Organization
After clicking the "Register" 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 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 401Gives.
For many of you, your organization will not appear in the search results. 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 401Gives 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 Registration Survey
After completing the steps above you'll be directed to the final page before your registration for 401Gives is complete. Here you'll need to answer the required survey questions before making your payment and finalizing your organization's registration for 401Gives.
Once the survey is complete, you'll need to pay the registration fee to finalize your registration. There is a $35 early bird registration fee for nonprofits that register before February 15, 2022 and $50 after that. See the 401Gives FAQ's for more details. Upon clicking the "Submit" button, you'll receive an email confirmation, and automatically be redirected to your 401Gives dashboard on GiveGab where you can begin customizing your 401Gives profile. If you are a returning participant, you can also copy over your profile from last year so you don't have to start from scratch!
