We currently cannot accept donations of cryptocurrency, airline miles, rewards points, hotel points or flight vouchers.

We do not currently accept PayPal.

What are the minimum and maximum donations?

There is a $5 minimum donation to deter malicious donations, as people who have stolen credit card information often donate to nonprofits as a way of testing whether the card works.

There is no maximum donation, but due to fees, please get in touch prior to making a large donation.

Will I be subscribed to an email list?

Donors will be subscribed to our email list automatically to receive infrequent updates on our project and the impact of your donation. You can unsubscribe at any time with one click. Your information is not sent to any third parties.

What is your refund policy?

We can refund donations made via debit or credit card within 30 days of them being made.

If you want your donation refunded, please email [email protected]. To process your refund we need to know the date of your donation, the amount you donated, and your full name. Please also tell us why you’re asking for a refund.

Your donation may take 5 or more business days to arrive. We process the refund immediately, the delay is with the banks and we can’t do anything about it.

If you request a refund within a business day of making the donation, it will be processed significantly faster as it has not been processed completely.

What is the ‘cover fundraising costs’ option?

We use the Raisely platform to take payments, which does not charge us fees for this service. You can elect to cover their fundraising costs as a thank you, we do not receive this money.
