Welcome to Share Your Share. These terms and conditions govern your access to and use of this website, applications and various online tools and services that Share Your Share makes available to donors and all others users of the Share Your Share service, collectively called Users of the Share Your Share service (the "Service" or the "Site").
In accordance with terms and conditions contained herein, by accessing the Service, you agree to:
- be bound by the terms and conditions set forth herein,
- comply with any technical specifications, rules of operation or security procedures set forth by Share Your Share from time to time on the Service.
From time to time we may revise or modify these terms and conditions by posting the revised terms and conditions through a link on our Site. While we will endeavor to provide notice to you of any changes to the pricing or other financial terms of these terms and conditions, whether or not we provide notice to you, you will be bound by the revised terms and conditions for all subsequent uses of this Service after such modifications have been made. If you do not agree to any of the terms and conditions set forth herein, you may not use this Service.
If you are a Donor, you are solely responsible for ensuring that you have selected the correct organization to receive your donation. You understand that your donation is to Share Your Share, a Donor Advised Fund (DAF), which is a charitable organization with 501(c)(3) status that processes donations and distributes funds to charities based on donor recommendations. Your statement will read "Share Your Share" and not the recommended charity since your donation is to Share Your Share's DAF. Share Your Share will forward the donation to the recommended charity of record.
You understand that Share Your Share will conduct due diligence to make sure that the charity you have selected meets public accountability standards. If the charity you have selected no longer accepts donations, is no longer recognized by the IRS as a public charity, or is no longer in good standing with federal regulators, Share Your Share will contact you to request an alternate charity. If you do not respond within 30 days, Share Your Share will select another charity that meets high public standards and whose mission is similar to the organization that you originally selected.
All donations to non-profits are made as unrestricted gifts and may not be specified for any particular purpose. If you received goods or services in exchange for your donation, you understand that your tax deduction may be limited to the excess of the contribution over the fair market value of any items received in exchange for the donation.
The amount of donations to the non-profit designated by you are charged on your credit/bank card and paid to, and processed by, Share Your Share or its affiliates on such non-profit organization's behalf. Users agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized credit/bank card in making transactions on the Share Your Share site and applications.
You understand that, like any tax-deductible charitable donation, your donation cannot be cancelled or returned once it has been completed. Any payments of donations are final and non-refundable.
The donations will be held in a bank account until such time as Share Your Share forwards the donations to the non-profit or payee of funds. Share Your Share forwards donations to the non-profit at intervals as determined by Share Your Share. It is typically within 30 days of the end of the month in which the donation was received.
You understand that the assets held by Share Your Share 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.
Donations to the non-profit designated by you will be net of:
- A service fee of 5%
- Any credit, debit or bank card processing and/or bank fees.
This fee structure is subject to change from time to time at the sole discretion of Share Your Share.
