We welcome all qualified nonprofits to participate in 3 Rivers Community Foundation, “Holiday Giving Catalog,” an online crowdfunding platform that supports direct giving to qualified area nonprofit organizations.

It’s easy to apply and we welcome qualified nonprofit organizations in Benton and Franklin counties to participate. The maximum ”ask” amount will be capped at $2,500.
The “Catalog” platform allows donations in any amount and is supported by robust software that lets donors make as many choices as possible with one easy check out on your desktop or phone. Plus, donors automatically receive a tax receipt once the transaction is complete.
The Holiday Giving Catalog will be open for donations Friday, November 24th, 2023, through Wednesday, January 31st, 2024. Donations will be tabulated in February 2024 and funds will be released to organizations later in the month.
To qualify for the program, you must be a nonprofit organization in Benton or Franklin counties that can:
*Pass a GuideStar inspection linked to your 501c3 (tax ID) number
*Provide your most recent 990 or 990-N tax form filed (can be a postcard)
*Provide a written explanation as to where the funding will be applied (i.e., project/initiative/equipment/education) and a simple budget for the request
*Provide a contact person that will be responsible for communication, administration, and promotion.
We also ask that participating organizations help 3RCF with promotion of the program by distributing information (in-person, website, social media). Distribution materials and imagery will be provided by 3RCF.
