Dollar Giving, Inc. (referred to as us or we) is a nonprofit non-stock corporation registered in the State of Connecticut, USA. We operate the website dollargiving.org (the Website). These are the Terms and Conditions which govern each use you make of the donation payment services provided through the Website.
These Terms and Conditions apply separately to each single donation that you make. Except as provided for in section 6, ‘Recurring Donations’, and unless specified by you, they do not form a contract allowing for future or successive transactions to be set up. By confirming on the Website that you wish to make a donation you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions for that donation.
(1) The donation services
Your donation is being made to Dollar Giving. Dollar Giving is designated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the Internal Revenue Service. Dollar Giving processes donations and disburses funds as grants to charities based on donor designations through dollargiving.org. We will use your donation as prescribed by you up until the stated goal for the campaign is met at which time we will use your donation at our discretion but within our stated charitable objectives and only for campaigns listed on dollargiving.org.
Upon campaign goal being met, Dollar Giving will send the collective donations to the charity within seven (7) business days. Like any tax-deductible charitable donation, your donation cannot be cancelled or returned once it has been processed. Dollar Giving will conduct due diligence to make sure the charity(s) we list on dollargiving.org and you select meet public accountability standards. If the charity you selected no longer accepts donations, is no longer recognized by the IRS as a public charity or private foundation, is no longer in good standing with federal regulators, or is not able to be paid or accept a donation from Dollar Giving, then Dollar Giving will contact you to request an alternative campaign from the current list on dollargiving.org. If we do not receive a response within 30 days, Dollar Giving will select another campaign/charity that meets high public standards at our discretion and distribute your donation to that charity.
All payments through the Website are to be made by credit or debit card. We also accept donations by check. Checks can be made payable to Dollar Giving and sent to 60 Carriage Dr., Tolland CT 06084, USA. Please note that we will not accept payment in the form of cash.
Once you confirm to us through the Website that you wish to proceed with your donation your transaction will be processed through one of two payment services providers, Stripe or PayPal, Inc. By confirming that you wish to proceed with your donation you authorize Stripe or PayPal to request funds from your credit or debit card provider.
Reference to Dollar Giving will show as “DOLLARGIVI”, “DOLLARGIVING”, “DOLLAR GIVING, INC.” or may show up as the name of the charity you donated to, e.g. “THE VILLAGE” followed by our phone number “8603750127” on credit card and bank statements.
(2) Income Tax deductible donations
Donations made to Dollar Giving are tax deductible up to the limits set forth by the Internal Revenue Service. If you have any doubts about whether your donation is deductible on federal income taxes we recommend you consult your own tax professional about any accounting, taxation or financial consequences of making a donation that may affect you.
Dollar Giving makes no guarantees and provides no advice on whether a donation is or is not tax deductible for income tax purposes.
(3) Unauthorized card use
If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider.
(4) Information from you
Before we can process a donation you must provide us with (i) your name, address and email address; and (ii) details of the credit or debit card that you wish to use to fund the donation. We will use this information to process your donation. It is your responsibility to ensure you have provided us with the correct information.
Upon entering your donation amount, name and email address, select the “pay securely with Visa/MC/Amex/Discover” selection button and enter your credit card information and click “Donate” you are authorizing Stripe to securely deduct the amount selected from you credit card. Upon successful completion you will be sent to the receipt page where you can print your receipt for your records. An email copy of your receipt will also be emailed to the email address provided. Under no circumstances will your payment information be transmitted or shared with Dollar Giving, Inc.
When you enter your donation amount, name and email address and select to process payment through PayPal you will be transferred to the payment providers website, PayPal.com, where you will enter your address and payment information and complete your transaction. Your payment data will be collected and processed securely by PayPal. You should make sure you are aware of PayPal’s terms and conditions, which are different from our own, to ensure that you are comfortable with how they will process your personal data before you make a donation. Under no circumstances will your payment information be transmitted or shared with Dollar Giving, Inc.
(5) Refund policy
Tax deductible donations cannot be cancelled, returned or refunded.
(6) Recurring donations
These Donation Payment Terms and Conditions will only apply to successive donations made through the Website where you have set up a recurring donation. When you set up a recurring donation you will be scheduling a series of donations to be made on the day of the month of your first donation until further notice. You agree that these Terms and Conditions will apply to each of the donations in that series.
By confirming that you wish to proceed with a recurring donation you authorize our payment service providers Stripe or PayPal to request funds from your credit or debit card on the day of each month of your first donation.
To cancel your recurring donation please contact us at email@example.com or visit your PayPal account where you will be able to edit your recurring donation.
We reserve the right to amend these Donation Payment Terms and Conditions at any time.
These Donation Payment Terms and Conditions are governed by Connecticut law and are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of Connecticut courts.
