Section 501(c)(3) is the portion of the US Internal Revenue Code that allows for federal tax exemption of nonprofit organizations, specifically those that are considered public charities, private foundations, or private operating foundations. It is regulated and administered by the US Department of Treasury through the Internal Revenue Service. There are other 501(c) organizations, indicated by categories 501(c)(1) – 501(c)(29). This discussion will focus on 501(c)(3). – Foundation Group

'Verification' Definition 

CyberGrants works with the Internal Revenue Service and other global databases to guarantee that nonprofits meet the charitable standards of our corporate customers. FrontDoor allows CyberGrants to verify the individuals who claim to represent these nonprofits to ensure that they are the right people to make decisions on the organization's behalf.

Existing FrontDoor Account with CyberGrants

While nonprofit organizations may already have CyberGrants accounts with particular companies, FrontDoor requires additional verification to allow an account to span across customers and therefore a new account with Walmart. You can still keep your original corporate accounts if you prefer.
