JustFund accepts registrations from applicants with 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) status, fiscally sponsored projects, and Federally Recognized Tribes. JustFund is not responsible for conducting due diligence, and does not require financial documentation from applicants as part of the Common Application process (e.g., IRS Determination Letter, 990 Form, etc.). If you or your Finance team would like to or need to collect this documentation for your own compliance review or records, you have the option to require that applicants submit this additional information as an attachment. This can help streamline your disbursement process, so that your Finance team has all the necessary documents that they might need as soon as you have made your grant decisions. You can indicate this requirement when setting up your grant cycle through the JustFund platform. Note: not all Finance teams require this documentation, so we recommend you confirm within your internal team.
Full Service Partnership with Amalgamated Charitable Foundation:
For funds that are utilizing our Full Service model, Amalgamated Charitable Foundation [https://www.amalgamatedfoundation.org/] takes on the financial and regulatory responsibilities of grant distribution. They do not require an IRS Determination Letter or 990 to conduct their due diligence process. They will do an internal review to ensure that all grants are issued to 501(c)(3) organizations or to the 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor of a project. If you are a Full Service client, you will not need to indicate requiring these additional attachments when setting up your grant cycle.
