CharityCheck Reverse Lookup

CharityCheck for both identity and tax status before you donate.

The Reverse Lookup list includes every charity and nonprofit organization listed by the Internal Revenue Service as exempt from federal income taxes.

If it's not a church or government unit and not in the CharityCheck Reverse Lookup list, it's NOT a charity or nonprofit.
