All financial contributions that are generated via Great Hearts go directly to your nonprofit. No set up fees or administrative costs are taken out.

What Great Hearts Asks of Nonprofit Organization

We ask that organizations actively participate in Great Hearts Community activities by:
  • Completing an organizational profile.
  • Frequently updating the profile with the organization's programs, needs and events.
  • Encouraging volunteers, board members, staff and others to join. Your supporters will be able to help you during the Great Hearts Awards and social media events.
  • Sharing your social media resources (e.g. videos, online stories, resources) and, occasionally, using your network to communicate community messages. Doing so helps to build awareness of your organization as well as helps the Great Hearts Community.
  • Being supportive of our community guidelines so that Great Hearts can be a helpful, safe and inclusive place for inspiration, giving and connecting with people.
After being nominated and accepted, the nonprofit cause will be showcased so that Great Hearts Community members get to know and support the organization.
