The centerpiece of the GreenNonprofit movement is for each charity to become certified. This is a process that is both easy to understand and takes time to complete.

The first step is to create your profile and start earning points. You only need 100 points to become certified. You can start earning points right way. 

1. See what points you may have already earned with actions you have already taken
2. Review options for earning other points
3. Save your work
4. Engage your organization to make additional changes
5. Come back and add your new points
6. Repeat 2-5 until you have earned 100 points


For now you can download (for digital use on your computer) the certification application. Soon we will launch an online database you can use to store your work.

Go to and click on certification to get started.
