How does ShoppingGives remain compliant with Cause Marketing regulations when donating to nonprofits?

Our goal at ShoppingGives is to be the simple solution for brands to seamlessly give back to nonprofits, and for those nonprofits to passively and securely receive those funds. If your U.S. registered 501(c)(3) organization is in good-standing with the IRS, the organization should already be listed within our database, and thus eligible to be supported by our brand partners.

ShoppingGives complies with state Commercial Co-Venture Agreements “CCV” laws for charitable sales campaigns that are conducted using our platform so brands can donate to any 501(c)(3) charity in good standing with the IRS without worrying about CCV compliance. Commercial Co-Venture is a requirement for brands donating on behalf of their customers. Many states require that companies register as CCV — as we are the entity managing the donations for our brand partners, we have already done so.

Nonprofits are not responsible for filing legal registrations for brands fundraising via the ShoppingGives platform.

Donations are directly received by the ShoppingGives Foundation (EIN 83-1352270), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity. Our technology captures the designated nonprofit beneficiaries selected by our brand partners or their customers, and the ShoppingGives Foundation distributes grants to the designated beneficiaries. This makes it simple for your nonprofit to receive funds raised on our platform in a timely manner, with no fees taken from the amount.
