To be endorsed by C.A.R.E., an online reunion registry must meet the following criteria:

Agree to not charge for its services in any way. Registries who offer targeted advertising*, or are attached to or promote fee based services will not be accepted. Registries who ask for and/or accept donations must be an incorporated 501c3, and must explicitly reassure registrants on their website that the use of and services provided by the registry is in no way contingent on a donation. Registries shown to be in violation of this will no longer be endorsed by C.A.R.E.

Why does CARE require that a registry who asks for donations be 501c3?
