Benefits of Being a Part of the Great Hearts Community

Once registered, your organization will have the opportunity to:
  • Promote your cause by completing a Great Hearts Community web page on which you may highlight your mission, goals, key initiatives, and needs. Doing so will attract Great Hearts Community members to learn about your organization, to get involved with your activities, and to provide other forms of support.
  • Participate in the Great Hearts Award. For this innovative monetary award, Great Hearts Community members select their favorite nonprofit(s). Awards are given throughout the year. There is a Great Hearts Awards at least once a month.
  • Receive financial contributions from Great Hearts Community members. Although the Great Hearts Community is not a crowdfunding site, it does provide a good way for community members to financially give to your organization. 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 The Great Hearts Community Asks of Your Organization

We ask that your organization actively participate in Great Hearts Community activities by:
  • Completing your organizational profile.

Thanks for all the good work that you are doing.
