How do I become an administrator for my organization's profile?

An illustration of two puzzle pieces.

You can send a request to a current administrator, send a request to our Community Support team, or if all else fails, you can contact us directly!*

If you see that your organization already has a profile on Idealist, instead of creating an entirely new page, you can become an administrator! Once you are listed as an administrator, you can edit your organization's profile including the description and location.

To become an administrator of your organization's page, you'll first need to log in or sign up as an individual. You can also check out our article for more information about signing up.

Once you’ve signed in, you can search our organization directory to see if your organization is already on our site. If not, check out how to add your organization!

Once you’ve found your organization in the search results, click on name of the organization to visit its profile page. Then, click the "Become an administrator" link on the left side of the screen.

You can either send a request to the administrators of your organization, or you can send a request to Idealist Staff. If you're unsure of who is currently listed as an administrator, please let us know after you've requested to become an administrator so we can approve the request.

Tip: We recommend logging in with your organization email address ( as this will allow us to add you to the organization immediately if you don't have an organization address, please contact us with information authenticating you as an administrator.

If you have any questions about this process, please let us know ! We’re happy to assist!
