Register Your Organization for a Directory Listing in The Giving Store

In 2017, we will be unveiling The Giving Store and we want you to be a part of it!


The Giving Store will be a one-stop-shop for effective and easy philanthropy. Enhancements will provide more opportunities for your nonprofit to engage with the Foundation, potential donors, and the broader community.

In this new marketplace, we will be featuring Directory Listings—a snapshot of your organization that includes your logo, featured image, mission statement, contact information, website, and links to social media. With a listing in The Giving Store, your organization will be able to accept credit card gifts through electronic transfer from anyone at any time. Registering for a listing takes only a few minutes, and provides your organization with a unique Giving Store link to share across multiple channels.

Your organization is eligible to create a Directory Listing if it is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located and providing services in Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Hocking, Licking, Madison, Morrow, Perry, Pickaway, or Union counties.

Only nonprofits with Directory Listings will have the opportunity to participate in future giving days, like The Big Give!


If you would like your organization to have a listing in our new marketplace, we need the following information:

1. Photographs: When The Giving Store is launched, your logo and one photo that represents your organization will be prominently featured in your Directory Listing. Please email a 600 x 370 pixel .jpg of your organization’s logo and one 940 x 470 pixel .jpg featured photo that helps tell your organization’s story.

  • Photos should have a resolution of at least 72 ppi. If you are unable to resize or crop photos, please send the original file. When selecting your featured photo, choose a simple and bold scene that represents your organization’s core mission.
