Become a Partner

Greater Giving’s Partner Program is for companies and individuals who provide products and services that support nonprofit and school fundraising activities. A partnership with Greater Giving can help you leverage your marketing dollars and attract more clients. In addition, Greater Giving partners are paid a $150 referral fee when an organization they refer (not in our sales tracking system) becomes a Greater Giving customer.

Potential partners must be well-established and in good standing in the nonprofit industry. We recommend that you establish a working relationship with Greater Giving sales, marketing or client service staff prior to applying for acceptance into the program.

Greater Giving Partner Categories

Greater Giving's partner categories are designed to meet the needs of diverse businesses with various business models.

  • Friends of Greater Giving: this partnership category is a starting point for most partners, designed to initiate and grow the relationship between Greater Giving's Area Marketing Managers and partner organizations in their region.
  • Marketing Partners: this partner category requires a higher level of involvement than the Friends of Greater Giving category and is designed to provide organizations with a variety of Greater Giving marketing and sales activities in which to participate.
