What nonprofits are eligible?

Only qualified U.S.-based nonprofit organizations and educational institutions with tax-exempt status granted under the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) are eligible to receive award donations. Exceptions to this include charitable organizations/foundations that serve as the charitable arm of for-profit corporations (for example, the Starbucks Foundation affiliated with Starbucks Corp.).

Rotary and other clubs are eligible if they have a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation. (Note: The club itself is not eligible, the club’s foundation is. Therefore you must provide the Tax ID for the foundation, not the club.).
