General Campaign Donor Choice Program Certification
Organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and who provide a direct public Health or Human Service, that have recently received and/or may receive donor-designated contributions, are required to recertify annually (whether located in Erie County or not). During this period, our United Way contacts selected agencies regarding this process and request their participation in validating contact information, IRS eligibility, and the USA PATRIOT Act *. This process is conducted online and only agencies that respond and qualify will be eligible to receive donor-designated contributions through the General (Regular Buffalo) Campaign. Please NOTE: this is NOT related to the SEFA or CFC application or annual recertification.
