CommunitySuite is integrated with GuideStar (US clients) and Ajah (Canadian clients) to verify a nonprofit status. If you do not want to use GuideStar/Ajah to verify the nonprofit status of a specific grantee, you can override the charity check. This may be necessary for schools or churches that do not have 501(c)3 status.
- Navigate to the Grantees page.
- Begin typing the name of the grantee you wish to no longer verify using GuideStar in the Search Grantee text box and select the grantee.
- Click Edit on the left side menu.
- Check the No Charity Status Check box, then click Save.
The grantee can now be issued a grant without running a charity check.
