Resources for Nonprofit Organizations



NPOconnect is the free portal for nonprofit organizations (NPOs) through which you can manage the information about your NPO that we share with our employees. It’s also where you can review the donations and volunteer hours that Corning employees have contributed to your organization through our employee programs such as Dollars for Doers and Matching Gifts.

There are many features available to you in NPOconnect that will make it easier for you to receive and manage your donation and volunteer details. NPOconnect advantages include:

  • Monthly Check Distribution: Checks or direct deposits will arrive monthly and donor information (which used to come in a letter with the check) can be accessed any time by using the NPOconnect Portal.
  • Direct deposit registration and donation visibility: NPOconnect provides an overview of recent and pending donations made through the platform. NPOs can also register for free direct deposit and get payments up to three weeks faster than by check. Other benefits include:
    • Secure payments that ensure funds are accepted and available immediately upon disbursement
    • Reduces environmental footprint from printing and mailing paper checks
    • Prevents potential stranded funds when checks are not deposited in a timely manner
  • Visibility: The charity profile allows nonprofit administrators to clearly communicate their organization’s missions and goals, update the logo, website address and contact information. Organizations can also create tags in the platform to assist potential donors in finding them.
