What is an RUF Affiliate Organization?
An RUF Affiliate Organization is a 501c3 nonprofit-equivalent entity from outside of the United States that has met all the criteria for approval, has passed through RUF's Due Diligence process and has been approved by RUF as a potential recipient of funds.
Learn more about the conditions that must be met for approval and a list of approved Affiliate Organizations.
Once approved, an Affiliate Organization is eligible to raise and receive funding through RUF, from any donor in the United States.
How long does the due-diligence process for an affiliate organization take?
Generally, the process lasts 1-3 weeks. We have a dedicated team that collects all the documents, verifies them and then the organization must be approved by our Board of Directors.
How do I register an Affiliate Organization?
Follow the steps listed on our Register Affiliate Organization page.
Who can become an Affiliate Organization?
The main conditions are 501c3 equivalent and 2 years of activity. See detailed information on our Affiliate Organization Conditions page.
What is the difference between Affiliate Organizations and Community Partners?
Romanian United Fund has a long-term contract with its Community Partners, providing support, guidance, fundraising expertise and access to RUF's regular fundraising campaigns. We continuously work with our Community Partners throughout the year.
RUF's relations with its Affiliate Organizations are more ad hoc, on a project-by-project basis. Although we may promote our Affiliates to our Diaspora community, via our website or during our various fundraising programs, we do not do regular fundraising for Affiliate Organizations and our interactions are more limited.
Affiliate Organizations are prime candidates for being selected as new Community Partners in the future, especially if they prove sustained activity and a systemic impact as described below.
