About FFC Hosting
FFCHosting.org is a project of Free For Charity. After seeing how small nonprofits were often unaware of the resources available to them as it related to technology and observing how charities were preyed upon while in the up to 18 months leading up to IRS 501(c)3 designation; Free For Charity was founded to help charities avoid these costly problems and focus on doing the great work they need to do. If you don’t need a domain name today but want to support us please share this page or donate directly so we can provide more and more services to non-profits
How can you afford to give away free domain names?
As a 501(c)3 charity ourselves we seek individual, business, and grant sources of funding. At current free for charity has not received a grant specifically for domain names but uses individual and business contributions to fund this domain name program.
Are you really a Charity?
Yes, We have had IRS designation since 2014 and have been building our systems and testing or support for several years. While charities for charities are rare they do exist and in fact fill an important need in reducing overhead expenses for other nonprofits. Our IRS designation number (EIN) is 46-2471893. You can see our guidestar profile here. We are proud to also recommend other charities for charities that inspired us to create this nonprofit.
If I am an individual or business and donate money for a domain package to Free for Charity is this tax-deductible?
While any official tax guidance should come from your accountant or other tax advisor Free For Charity is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible. Our IRS designation number (EIN) is 46-2471893. Upon checkout you will receive a receipt to provide to your accountant. Specifically, if you represent a business you can elect to deduct this as an expense versus as a donation depending on the guidance of your tax advisor.
Where do you get your domain name packages?
We are a registered reseller of eNom domain names. eNom has graciously provided us with a Platinum account to support other non profits providing the lowest cost domain names for a charity of our size. As we get more and more charities into the domain system we expect the costs to freeforchariy.org to drop even further.
Why do I not see hosting as an option?
At current we have enough fully supported charities and are only selling domain names with included security and email forwarding. Please select an option above to get started with your domain name package. Existing for profit supporters and supported charities are the first to be reached out to when hosting or other types of support opportunities become available. We process at least 1 new charity into the full hosting system per week.
If you already have your 501(c)3 get your free domain from us and we fully recommend DreamHost as your hosting provider. They provide free hosting to all US based charities with IRS designation. If you are pre-501(c)3 please reach out to us directly after you get your free domain for how large our backlog is. If you can provide your own qualified WordPress webmaster you may be moved up in the list.
Chris Rae has been a mentor for the Buena High School robotics team for the three years I have been involved with the team. His service to the team continues to be vital to the growth of the team. He uses his knowledge and expertise to teach our young programmers what they need to be successful in our program and beyond. His work with Free for Charity has also benefited the team in many ways, including the donation of several computers to the team. I rely on his knowledge of non-profit organizations and the community as well as his technical ability constantly.

When the Grafton Historical Society started in 2016, we needed a web presence. But as a new non-profit organization, we did not have any funds. As we searched for non-profit support services, we found Free for Charity. Free for Charity was able to provide and setup our domain and web site builder at no cost for us. The sign-up process was easy and I was able to create and publish our site right away. When I needed help, the Free for Charity team was always there to assist me. A year later, we still rely on Free for Charity and we use the funds we save towards the preservation of history for Grafton, Wisconsin.
