Frequently Asked Questions

Is my nonprofit organization a good fit for Health and Medical Research Charities of America (HMR)?

HMR represents a highly diverse group of national health cause related nonprofits throughout the country that make a significant impact every day. Founded in 1995, HMR was established exclusively to raise funds and increase awareness for national health or medical research organizations. If your nonprofit is a health cause related nonprofit that has programs and services in 15 or more states, then you should consider joining HMR.

How can Health and Medical Research Charities of America help my organization?

HMR helps nonprofits navigate and thrive in an often overwhelming and cumbersome fundraising world. We provide consolidated workplace campaign administration, marketing and financial services designed to lower individual charity costs. We also provide increased online presence with an individualized partner profile which raises awareness of your cause while funneling more supporters and funds to your mission. HMR provides additional services via partners, including online fundraising software through GiveDirect, corporate matching gift services through Amply, state charitable registration services, grant assistance, and an awarded charitable seal of excellence through America's Best Charities.

Is my organization eligible to become an Health and Medical Research Charities of America partner?

HMR nonprofit partners must meet strict accountability standards via an annual application and review process. All applicants must be in good standing with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, demonstrate significant program service on a national level, commission an annual audited financial statement (or review if appropriate), have an active independent board of directors, have reasonable fundraising and administrative expenses, and meet other modest board requests. HMR professionals provide personalized assistance to help you evaluate various campaign participation scenarios and your financial return potential.

What are the benefits of participation in workplace fund drives?

Workplace giving opportunities provide millions of Americans with a reliable and efficient way to support charitable organizations. Campaigns rely upon payroll deductions and as a result, participating nonprofits gain dependable, undesignated, and unrestricted quarterly revenue. HMR is proud to represent partner nonprofits in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) and facilitate numerous state, local, and corporate campaigns through our partner federation, America’s Best Charities.

What is the Combined Federal Campaign?

The mission of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. The CFC is proud to be celebrating its 60th anniversary. As the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, the CFC has raised more than $8.5 billion for charities and people in need.
