The email address used for a Walmart.com account should match the CyberGrants FrontDoor account email address. If the email address matches, but the user does not see the organization listed in the Space Request Tool, the user should contact their organization’s administrator if they believe they should be added as an authorized user of the organization.

Walmart uses a third party called CyberGrants FrontDoor to validate and verify that a nonprofit is in good standing and that each individual associated with the organization is deemed an “Authorized User” from that organization.
