Reverse Lookup

Check an organization's identity and tax status before you donate.

The Reverse Lookup list includes every one of the 1.6 million+ nonprofits and charities recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as exempt from federal income taxes.

If it's not a church or government unit and not in the EIN Magic list, it's not a charity or nonprofit.
