FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Which organizations are eligible to receive donations?
M22 accepts donation request applications from local non-profit organizations with 501(c)3 status. The event, fundraiser or program must serve the local community. M22 cannot make donations to political or religious organizations unless the donation will be used for a local, non-secular, community service-related event or program. M22 does not donate products to individuals, individuals seeking pledges, multiple requests from the same organization or causes outside the state of Michigan. Please note prior support does not guarantee future support.
What is acceptable documentation of my organization’s non-profit status and why is this necessary?
In order to accept and review your donation request application, it must be accompanied by a copy of the federally issued statement of your organization’s 501(c)3 status and your 9-digit Federal Identification Number. This letter is obtained from the Federal Treasury and is different from a tax-exempt form. For accounting purposes, documentation, including nonprofit status, of every donation request application processed must be kept on record for 7 years.
How will I know if my donation request application has been approved?
Correctly completed donation application requests are reviewed in a timely manner. If your application is approved for a donation, you will generally receive notice at least 2-3 weeks prior to your event, fundraiser or program date. Due to the number of requests we receive, we request you correspond with us about your application status via email whenever possible.
