Principal Controlling Officer

A Principal Controlling Officer is a person who has been authorized by the charity's board of directors to act on its behalf during any legal or tax matters that may arise. In practice this means a person who can sign documents that affect the charity, and the signature is binding.

A PCO may be an officer of the charity, such as president, vice president, founder, executive director, or a member of the board that has authority to act on behalf of the charity.

Why Do We Ask For this information?

Since we process payments on your behalf, our regulators and financial partners require us to perform identity verification. The collection of this information is intended to promote transparency and prevent individuals from using complex company structures to hide terrorist financing, money laundering, tax evasion, and other financial crimes. Identity verification requirements are now standard within the financial industry, including all payment processors.

For more information on PCO and why it is required, please read the related article "Principal Controlling Officer and Know Your Customer"
