Thank you for contacting us! In order to be added to the database, each organization must register with our vetting partner, GuideStar. We receive a monthly charity update from GuideStar, between the 15th and 25th. The time it takes your organization to get added will depend on their responsiveness. Typically, it takes 1-2 months for an organization to be added to the database.
GuideStar Instructions (please forward to your charity):
I have requested to add your organization to the Arthur J Gallagher charity database. In order to be added, you will first need to register with Arthur J Gallagher's charity vetting partner, GuideStar. Please send ALL of the documents below to GuideStar for them to create a profile for your organization:
- The year the church/religious organization was founded
- A copy of a federal IRS document that has the church/religious organization’s name and EIN pre-printed on the form (form 941, payroll tax receipts, and EIN Issuance Letter are all acceptable documentation)
- A copy of the church/religious organization’s listing in the parent Church National Directory, a copy of the State Registration, or a copy of the Sales & Use Tax Exemption issued by the State.
You can either email your documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your contact information!
All the best,
