NON-Profit Hosting

Non-profit discounts

KnowledgeGuard offers a few types of FREE hosting plans to non-profit, charitable organizations registered in the United States. This discount applies to a single shared hosting plan per non-profit, hosted within only one account, for US-based 501(c)(3) organizations. This discount remains active for the lifetime of the KnowledgeGuard account.

KnowledgeGuard also offers US-based 501(c)(3) organizations a discount on other services like application development, Website theme design and even Cloud Services. The discount offers up to 40% off depending on the service and is good for the life of the plan. 

We are working on Domain cost discounts and until such time we achieve this we can not offer domain purchases with any NON-Profit offer.

Proving non-profit status

Whether you are a new customer or a current customer, in order to prove your non-profit status KnowledgeGuard must receive one crucial piece of documentation: an official United States IRS letter indicating tax exempt non-profit status under the appropriate sections of the tax code. This is often called a 501(c)(3) determination letter.

A 501(c)(3) determination letter is the only documentation that KnowledgeGuard will accept as proof. If you are a non-profit organization and do not have a determination letter, regardless of the reason, you will be denied NON-Profit hosting.
