If your company offers international giving on Bright Funds, then you can search for nonprofits located around the world. 

You can use the country dropdown menu to select a country, then search for a nonprofit in various ways.

Finding your nonprofit by name

The most common way to find your nonprofit based outside the U.S. is by name. This will pull up nonprofits that match the keywords entered in the search.

Finding a nonprofit by keyword(s)

If you are looking for a nonprofit for a particular focus, you can search for that cause.

For example, if you are looking to support nonprofits focused on food preparation, the results page will display nonprofits who have those keywords in their description:

Narrowing your search further

You can narrow your search further by using quotes around your keywords to find an exact match.


In this example, the action of "food preparation" will list nonprofits that have that exact phrase in their description on the results page:

Search by city

You can also search for nonprofits by city name. After you change your dropdown country, you can search for any city or town names to pull up nonprofits that are within the community and eligible on Bright Funds:

I tried looking for a nonprofit outside the U.S., but they are not appearing. Why can't I find them?

The Bright Funds database contains nonprofits outside the U.S. that have been pre-approved by our disbursement subcontractors. For this reason, any nonprofits that have not already been pre-approved by our partners will not be available for donations in the Bright Funds database.

The best way to find out if your nonprofit is in Bright Funds is to search their name (and change the country in the dropdown as well) to see if they are eligible.

Please note that new nonprofits are regularly added to our pre-approved list as well.
