Charity Evaluation Application

Online Application Instructions

Your Account

Prior to submitting an application for membership through the online system, applicants need to complete a one-time registration. You will need to supply your contact information and create a password to log in to the system. If you have applied in the past, use your username and password to log in. Please note that you do not need to enter an EIN or Tax ID at this stage.

Be sure to keep your account password so you or others in your organization can log in to the online portal in the future.

Creating an Application

After you log in, click “Apply” and select “AFC Membership Evaluation” to begin a new application.

If you want to exit your application before it is complete, click on “Save as Draft” at the bottom of the screen. You can then come back later and continue to work on your application by signing in with your password and clicking “edit” your draft. There is also a “print packet” button if you wish to create a printable document for internal review. When your application is complete click the “submit” button. You will receive an email confirming receipt of the application.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed by the AFC board of directors every other month (January, March, May, etc.)
