How long will my ED Certificate be valid?

The validity period is dictated by law and will be clearly shown on the ED Certificate. The validity period for an ED is usually two years from the end of the last fiscal year for which financials are reviewed.  Therefore, we encourage grantmakers to make requests at least 30 days after the NGO’s fiscal year end, giving the NGO time to finalize their financials. For example, if financials are received through 2018 we can extend their ED to 2020.
