Track your “change” in a Giving Account that you manage through your existing online banking account alongside all your other accounting tools, or at ctwfund.org.
Donors will have simple and flexible control over all aspects of their giving. For instance, if selecting more than one specific charity, users will be prompted to specify what percentage of their account will go to each recipient. Donors may also select a cause (e.g. homelessness, hunger) and be directed to a menu of specific 501(c)(3) registered charitable organizations with missions aligned to that cause. The pool of 501(c)(3)s will be selected through leveraging partnerships with charity rating services (e.g. Network for Good, Charity Navigator, GuideStar).
Donors with a specific 501(c)(3) charity in mind for their funds can utilize a speedy online locator through Change the World. Donors may access their account directly on Change the World’s website or through their financial institution. A donor can use their online Change the World account to check on the status of donations, the distribution of their funds and explore other charities to support.
At year’s end, Change the World will automatically generate a cumulative tax receipt for the donor’s charitable contributions to file with the IRS, should they wish to file an itemized tax return. All donations processed through Change the World will be potentially deductible due to the Fund’s 501(c)(3) status.
