JustGive is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Copyright 2016, JustGive. All Rights Reserved.
Any resale of this information or use for commercial gain is prohibited, except in accordance with a JustGive licensing agreement.
By completing this transaction, I agree to the following terms and conditions:
I understand that my contribution is to JustGive.org, a 501(c)3 organization that processes donations made through MembersGive® online and disburses funds to charities based on donor recommendations.
I understand that, like any tax-deductible charitable contribution, my donation cannot be cancelled or returned once it has been completed. I understand that JustGive will conduct due diligence to make sure that the charity I have selected meets public accountability standards. If the charity I have selected no longer accepts donations or is no longer recognized by the IRS as a public charity, JustGive will contact me to request an alternate charity. If I do not respond within 30 days, JustGive will select another charity that meets high public standards and whose mission is similar to the organization that I originally selected. If the charity I have selected is on the U.S. Department of Treasury's list of prohibited persons, including those who commit, threaten to commit, or support terrorism, my donation will be blocked as required by law. If this happens, I will be notified and given 30 days to select an alternate charity to receive the funds once the U.S. Government makes a final determination about the status of the charity. If I do not respond within 30 days, JustGive will select another charity that meets high public standards and whose mission is similar to the organization that I originally selected.
I understand that JustGive will send my donation to my recommended charity by the 10th of next month.
I understand that I cannot accept any goods or services in exchange for my donation. If I am offered goods and services in exchange for my donation, I will refuse them and/or return them immediately. If it is discovered that this donation is intended as payment for goods or services (such as tuition, membership dues, some event tickets, items purchased in a charity auction, etc.), the charity will be instructed not to apply the donation as payment and I will not be able to get a refund.
If this is a recurring donation, I understand that my first donation will be processed immediately and my next donation will be processed on the date I have selected to begin recurring donations. I understand that I must cancel or make any changes to future donations before the date of my next scheduled donation, which will be included on my email receipt. I agree to update any changes to my American Express account number and email address so that future donations can be processed and I will receive the receipts.
I understand that American Express will deduct a small transaction fee of 2.25% from my donation to cover standard processing costs and that this fee is deducted before JustGive disburses my donation to the charity.
I understand that I cannot donate to other donor advised funds, individuals, or private foundations through this site.
I affirm that I am not a donor advised fund, private foundation, or a member of JustGive's board of directors.
I understand that the assets held in JustGive's donor advised funds are the organization's property, subject to the organization's exclusive legal control, and that grant funds may be used only for charitable purposes and not for the benefit of the donor or donor advisor or other impermissible private benefit.
