Shortcut is honored to extend a full membership at no cost to eligible Nonprofit organizations as thanks for the hard work your team does to make the world a better place.
We welcome applications from organizations that hold a valid charitable status with either the IRS (in the United States) or a local tax service/charity commission, and that meet the following eligibility requirements.
We ask that the following criteria be considered when applying:
Is not a legislative or political activity organization
Is not a church, association of churches, or other religious or evangelical organization
Is not a school, college, or related organization
Is not an organization that attempts to influence public opinion
Is not a hospital, organization involved with health insurance or group health plans, or related organization
Is not a private grant-making, independent, or operating foundation
Does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, political affiliation or beliefs, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression
Does not promote a particular religious affiliation, dogma, or doctrine as part of its mission or in exchange for its services (being affiliated with a religious organization is not in itself disqualifying - see note below)
Note: If you feel your organization closely matches these requirements but aren't sure, please complete the application for consideration. Our support team will assist in verifying your status and is always happy to help.
