When using Submittable, you can choose to collect applications from a U.S.-based nonprofit organization, rather than an individual. Doing so will improve your clarity of data. You'll be able to track all applications from the same nonprofit, regardless of turnover in their staff, or of different versions of the organization name, avoiding data issues due to typos or acronyms. Here's how it works.

Watch a training webinar:

In your Project's General Settings, select the checkbox to require an Organization Name:

Note, you'll need to add an Eligibility Form using the Charity Check Form Field to power this feature.

After applicants provide their EIN number and complete your Eligibility Form, they'll confirm that they are submitting on behalf of the nonprofit organization:

When you receive the submission, you'll see the organization name in the submission list view. You can search, sort, filter, and report by organization name. The organization name will appear in the Organization column in the submission list view:

As you can see in the image above, the official organization name is recognized by the filter, even though the submissions arrived from different submitters, and represented the organization name differently in the submission title.
