The online charitable donations system is compatible with the most currentreleases of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge.  The site is not currently formatted for use on a cell phone.

The first time you use the system:

  1. Register your organization (if it has not previously been registered by another individual at your organization) or register yourself as a volunteer.
  2. Receive your password via email.
  3. Log in to submit your application for support.

For future applications, you will go directly to step 3.

No. Publix Charities is unable to donate to benefit an individual. However, we can consider a donation for an overall team or club sponsorship.

The IRS database lists only organizations that are fully registered nonprofit organizations. If you have not completely registered with the IRS (for example, you have received your EIN, but have not yet received your 501(c)(3) Determination Letter), your organization will not be listed in the database that is connected to our system.

When entering your information in the search fields, be careful to follow the instructions closely. Type in your EIN number with no dash. Do not complete any other fields. Then click the search button. Your organization’s information will auto-populate with the information you have provided to the IRS. Simply click your organization name; this will close the search page and return you to the Organization Information page.

  • IF your 501(c)(3) organization has been assigned an EIN number from the IRS, but has not yet received a Determination Letter, answer No to the EIN question.
  • IF you are a chapter of a state or national organization, answer No to the EIN question.  In the Legal Name field, type your parent organization name and your chapter name. (For example:  American Health Association – Southeast Florida).  Type your EIN number (if applicable) in the Doing Business As field.
  • IF you have recently received your IRS 501(c)(3) Determination Letter, your organization may not have been added to the IRS Database yet. Answer No to the EIN question, and type your EIN and the month and year it was issued in the Doing Business As field. (For example: EIN 01-2345678 – issued December 2018.)

Information that is typically auto-populated during the EIN search is not able to be changed.  If you answered No to the EIN question, simply skip the three grayed-out questions.
