Non-profit Finder

Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page details a mechanism to detect which accelerators are non-profits. This is important to the U.S. Seed Accelerators project.

A comprehensive list of nonprofits taken from the IRS can be found here:

\bulk\McNair\Projects\Accelerator\Summer 2018\Connor Accelerator Work\Nonprofits in US.xlsx

Warning: this file has 1 million rows

This file should be cross-referenced with the list of accelerators to find which ones are listed--those accelerators are non-profits. We'll need someone good in SQL to do this with a match.

Potential problem:

  • The names of listed non-profits will likely be somewhat different than the names of accelerators, because companies often file for tax exemption with different names than they show the public.
