Policies & Legal

Welcome to the AngeLink Community Foundation (“ACF”) Nonprofit Alliance program. ACF partners with other nonprofit organizations to increase funding for charitable giving and to further our mission to empower women and organizations that support women through charitable grants and distributions. All donations are made directly to ACF, an Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) registered 501(c)(3) public charity, Federal Tax ID: 85-2671534, as donor-advised funds to a nonprofit charity. ACF is a donor-advised fund. All ACF grants are made as unrestricted grants, therefore ACF is not able to verify how a charity uses funds received from ACF, nor does ACF assume any responsibility with respect to the use of funds. All donors may obtain information about individual nonprofits and use of funds by that charity by reviewing the charity’s own website.

The ACF Nonprofit Alliance includes nonprofits that are enrolled in this program and have become an ACF Nonprofit Alliance partner charity, subject to the ACF Nonprofit User Agreement. ACF reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to also partner with other unenrolled charities/nonprofits that have not expressly agreed to the ACF Nonprofit User Agreement terms or other ACF programs. ACF receives information about charities which may have enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance and those that may not be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance through a third-party database partner that aggregates nonprofit information. ACF uses best efforts to review Nonprofit Alliance partner enrollments. However, we cannot guarantee that a charity enrolled in the Nonprofit Alliance is in compliance with all U.S. state or federal laws and/or registration requirements, which may be subject to change at any time.

ACF reserves the right to partner with other nonprofit or for-profit organizations to further expand charitable donations on our technology partner (AngeLink, Inc.) and/or other third-party websites. All Nonprofit Alliance partners expressly agree to all terms and conditions of our technology partner, AngeLink, as well as its payment processor partners and its applicable policies, as well as other regulations that may apply. ACF makes no guarantee that Nonprofit Alliance partners will receive any donations by utilizing the ACF Platform or the AngeLink Platform.

The ACF Nonprofit Alliance program requires charities to be a tax-exempt nonprofit in good standing with the IRS and state agencies (as appropriate). ACF may access this data through a third-party database partner which aggregates data relating to US-based charities. ACF expressly prohibits potential nonprofit partners who may have breached our technology partner, AngeLink’s Terms of Service or other applicable policies, as well as any nonprofit/charity that has been identified as being subject to sanctions by the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control if confirmed via a third-party partner database. ACF reserves the right to use the logo of charities enrolled in the Nonprofit Alliance on our website as well as on our technology partner, AngeLink’s platform to increase charitable donations. Nonprofit organizations that seek to receive grants from ACF must first enroll in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance in order to receive such grants.

ACF retains sole discretion over all donations received through donor-advised funds, and reserves the right to review and/or seek further due diligence on Nonprofit Alliance partners at any time consistent with our anti-money laundering policy and other policies. If ACF believes there may be suspicious or illegal activity of any kind, ACF may remove a charity from the ACF Nonprofit Alliance at its sole discretion. ACF third-party partners or other ACF affiliated organizations may also remove charities from their websites or partner programs at their own discretion. A charity may request to be removed from ACF Nonprofit Alliance programs by contacting ACF at legal@angelinkcf.org.

ACF attempts, on a best efforts basis, to verify that a nonprofit has not lost its charitable status pursuant to data derived from a third-party nonprofit database. ACF also attempts, on a best effort basis, to ensure that the charity does not promote racial intolerance, hate speech or violence of any kind and that the charity conforms with the ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy at all times. However, ACF cannot guarantee this. ACF reserves the right to remove a Nonprofit Alliance partner at any time in ACF’s sole discretion.

The policies herein describe AngeLink Community Foundation’s (“ACF”) Pillars of Giving program. By using the ACF platform, making a donation, or contributing to ACF you acknowledge and expressly agree to these Pillars of Giving Policies.

What is the ACF Pillar of Giving program?

The ACF Pillars of Giving program are unrestricted funds donated from our giving community to support one or more of ACF’s core mission areas to support and empower women, or to support a specific emergency or disaster relief cause.

What are the core areas of focus for the ACF Pillars of Giving program?
  • Female inequality and injustice
  • Access to capital for women in business, and female entrepreneurship
  • Single and homeless mothers
  • Education for girls and women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (“STEM”)
  • Underprivileged and minority women
  • Medical research and support for women’s health and wellness

Donors contribute money to ACF either on our website through our technology partner, (AngeLink Inc.), or at an event, and we direct funds to support one or more of the ACF Pillars of Giving. Pillars of Giving expenditures may include grants to further ACF’s core mission areas, which may include grants to other nonprofits or organizations to support one or more Pillars of Giving. Donors from the AngeLink fundraising site may make contributions to the ACF Pillars of Giving at any time. ACF reserves the right to accept or reject a donation at any time.

ACF maintains full discretion and control over all Pillars of Giving funds which may be invested to support innovative and impactful programs in one or more areas consistent with ACF’s mission. Funds may also be pooled together to support specific emergency or disaster relief causes. Any income, including any gains earned on funds will be allocated and reinvested back into the ACF funds. ACF reserves the right to charge an administrative fee based on the total amount of donations to the ACF fund(s). ACF may also deduct any costs, in its sole discretion, including administrative, accounting, or legal fees to administer and support the operations of the ACF fund. Any additional due diligence or research on a nonprofit to enable a grant may require extra fees.

All donations and contributions to ACF are non-refundable and irrevocable gifts to ACF after 30 days of donation and if funds have not already been distributed to a charity, in its capacity as a donor-advised fund. Additionally, all donations and contributions to ACF are subject to the ACF variance power. Therefore, ACF has control over all property of ACF funds and full discretion and control over the contributions and donations, including any income earned on funds. All ACF distributions and grants are made exclusively for charitable and/or educational purposes in ACF’s sole discretion to further ACF’s core charitable missions through our Pillars of Giving.

ACF accepts donations and contributions to further our charitable purposes, enabling donors to receive beneficial tax deductions for their contributions. The donor recommends grants from unrestricted ACF funds to support one or more Pillars of Giving or an emergency/disaster relief cause. ACF cannot be bound by a donor’s grant recommendations, and donors hereby acknowledge and expressly agree that funds can be used to support one or more ACF Pillar of Giving as well as emergency or disaster relief cause for charitable purposes.

All grants from the ACF Fund must be used exclusively for eligible grant purposes which further ACF’s core mission as determined by ACF in our sole discretion. ACF will only make grants to charitable organizations that are tax-exempt public charities, educational institutions, and/or private operating foundations which are US-based organizations or certain international organizations on a case by case basis. In order to receive ACF funds, your organization must be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance.

ACF does not approve recommendations for grants to:

  • Political or lobbying campaigns or political activities that are not fully for charitable purposes.
  • Private, non-operating foundations.
  • Non-functionally integrated Type III supporting organizations.
  • Any organization or family member or affiliates (as defined below) of any ACF Advisor or Board member.
  • Further, no ACF Advisor or Board member may recommend an ACF grant that would satisfy or discharge or satisfy a legally enforceable pledge or obligation for themselves, family member or affiliate for any reason.

“Family member” shall mean spouse, domestic partner, ancestor, brother, sister, children, grandchildren or any of the above or any other “family member.” An “affiliate” of a person shall mean a partnership at least 35% owned by profits interest, a corporation at least 35% owned by voting shares, or a trust at least 35% owned by beneficial interest by that person and/or that person’s “family member.“ No Advisor or Board member may recommend a grant that would enable them or a “family member” or “affiliated” person to receive a return benefit, such as the opportunity to attend a fundraising event or dinner, including grants where the receipt of any benefit is paid for separately but contingent on a charitable grant or donation.

Welcome to the AngeLink Community Foundation (“ACF”) network. ACF partners with other nonprofit organizations to increase funding for charitable giving and to further our mission to empower women and organizations that support women through charitable grants and distributions. All donations are made directly to ACF, an Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) registered 501(c)(3) public charity, Federal Tax ID: 85-2671534, as donor-advised funds to a nonprofit charity. ACF is operating a donor-advised fund. All ACF grants are made as unrestricted grants, therefore ACF is not able to verify how a charity uses funds received from ACF, nor does ACF assume any responsibility with respect to the use of funds. All donors may obtain information about individual charities and use of funds by that charity by reviewing the charity’s website.

General Provisions:

The ACF Nonprofit User Agreement (“Agreement”) is a contract between ACF and you (“the User”), which describes our policies and requirements for charity partners which are part of our Nonprofit Alliance. Your continued access to or use of the ACF Platform constitutes your agreement to this ACF User Agreement as valuable and sufficient consideration and that you agree to be bound by this Agreement.

The ACF Nonprofit Alliance includes nonprofits that are enrolled in this program and have become an ACF Nonprofit Alliance partner charity, subject to the ACF Nonprofit Partner Agreement. ACF reserves the right to also partner with other unenrolled charities/nonprofits that have not expressly agreed to the ACF Nonprofit User Agreement terms, or other ACF programs at our sole discretion. ACF receives information about charities which may have enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance, and those that may not be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance through a third-party database partner that aggregates nonprofit information. ACF uses best efforts to review Nonprofit Alliance partner enrollments. However, we cannot guarantee that a charity enrolled in the Nonprofit Alliance is in compliance with all U.S. state or federal laws and/or registration requirements, which may be subject to change at any time.

ACF reserves the right to partner with other nonprofit or for-profit organizations to further expand donations on AngeLink and/or other third-party websites. However, please note that your organization must be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance in order to receive an ACF grant. All Nonprofit Alliance partners expressly agree to all terms and conditions of our technology partner (AngeLink), as well as its payment processor partners and its applicable policies, as well as other regulations that may apply.

ACF partners with charities through our Nonprofit Alliance, which provides information and enables donors to amplify their donations across a potentially larger long-term community by using the ACF platform, including the ACF website and/or mobile applications (the “ACF Platform” or “Platform”).

We accept and process donations from Donors, which we distribute to the Participating Nonprofit Organization recommended by the Donor, pursuant to the terms and conditions of our Donor Remittance Policy. ACF provides donor receipts of their donation with the date that their donation was made to ACF, which may enable Donors to deduct their donation (as permitted by applicable law). You will disregard any additional tax receipt you may receive from an ACF charity partner that may be forwarded to you as a duplicative receipt to ACF’s grant to that charity. ACF grants to a donor-recommended nonprofit are made consistent with applicable laws, regulations and ACF policies. All donations made to a nonprofit on our technology partner’s platform (AngeLink) are made as voluntary gifts to ACF. Your organization must be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance in order to receive an ACF grant.

Charities enrolled in our ACF Nonprofit Alliance program must be tax-exempt nonprofits in good standing with the IRS and state agencies (as appropriate). Private Operating Foundations under IRS regulations are not eligible to enroll in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance program. ACF may access this data through a third-party database partner which aggregates data relating to U.S.-based charities. ACF reserves the right to prohibit enrollment of any nonprofit who has been identified as being subject to sanctions by the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control, if confirmed via a third-party partner database.

When you enroll in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance, you agree to be bound by the ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy as well as any other terms under which the ACF enables our Platform to be made available to charities. You acknowledge and expressly agree to be bound to the ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy. Charities enrolled in our ACF Nonprofit Alliance agree, acknowledge and expressly consent to ACF’s use of third-party partners who may review and/or validate your status as a Public Charity or Tax-Deductible Organization under the IRS. ACF Nonprofit Alliance partners are treated according to the terms of our ACF Privacy Policy. ACF makes no guarantee that Nonprofit Alliance partners will receive any donations by utilizing the ACF Platform or the AngeLink, Inc. Platform.

ACF retains sole discretion over all donations received through donor-advised funds and reserves the right to review and/or seek further due diligence on Nonprofit Alliance partners and/or recommended organizations at any time consistent with our Anti-Money Laundering Policy and other applicable policies. If ACF believes there may be suspicious or illegal activity of any kind, it may remove the organization from the ACF Nonprofit Alliance at its sole discretion. ACF third-party partners or other ACF affiliated organizations may also remove charities from their websites or partner programs at their own discretion. You acknowledge and expressly agree that you will notify ACF immediately if for any reason, your status as a nonprofit or Tax-Deductible Organization, and/or if the IRS or any state or local government agency initiates an inquiry on your status as a Public Charity.

ACF reserves the right to approve or deny a charity’s enrollment in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance in our sole discretion based on your application and other due diligence. If approved as a charity in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance, you agree to be bound to this Agreement until it is terminated by ACF for any reason. You agree to notify ACF immediately if your charitable status is revoked or changes for any reason.

Registration and Use:

ACF reserves the right to also partner with other unenrolled charities that have not expressly agreed to the ACF Nonprofit User Agreement at our sole discretion.

You acknowledge and expressly agree that you are solely responsible for bearing all costs and fully complying with all federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations that may be applicable pursuant to this Agreement and to your status as a Public Charity or Tax-Deductible Organization, and ACF has no legal obligation in this regard whatsoever.

You agree to take all necessary accessions to authorize ACF to make appropriate transfers to you. You expressly acknowledge and agree that you cannot hold ACF liable if you provided incomplete or inaccurate information relating to your preferred payment method or your bank account (if available). Nonprofit Alliance partners are subject to the ACF Donation Remittance Policy and the Donor Terms of Service.

By using the ACF Platform you acknowledge and expressly agree that donor-advised funds are subject to ACF Donor Terms of Service and grants will be made consistent with applicable laws, regulations and ACF policies, and that ACF’s Nonprofit Alliance program determines the timing and manner of ACF distributions that may apply herein.

Per the ACF Privacy Policy, ACF may disclose information about Donors to you that may include, name, logo, email and mission statement, for the sole purpose of enabling you to thank and acknowledge donations and provide additional information relating to your charitable work. In this capacity you will have the ability to connect and engage with the Donor for this limited purpose and may not use the Donor’s personal information without the Donor’s prior express consent for any other additional purpose, such as marketing purposes.

In addition, you agree that all information provided by you in your Nonprofit Profile is true and accurate at all times. Further, you represent and warrant that during the time of this Agreement that you are tax-deductible Organization or Public Charity status described in sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a) of the Code. Further you agree to deploy funds received from ACF in a manner that is consistent in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and rules and any requirements governing charitable status and solicitation of charitable donations.

Use of Donated Funds:

ACF reserves the right to not distribute a donor recommended donation to a charity if, in our sole discretion, any of the following apply:

  • You are in breach of this Agreement for any reason and/or at any time you lose your Public Charity or Tax-Deductible Status.

ACF acknowledges and expressly agrees that all Funds granted by ACF may only be used for charitable purposes. Such funds may not constitute a legally binding pledge and may also not be used to engage in the promotion of racial intolerance, hate speech or violence of any kind, and that the charity conforms with the ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy, at all times. However, ACF cannot guarantee this. ACF reserves the right to remove a Nonprofit Alliance partner at any time in ACF’s sole discretion. You further agree that you will not disparage ACF, AngeLink or any other charity enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance, or any partner or sponsor thereof, and you agree to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any terms as described herein.

Proprietary and License Rights:

Users of the ACF Platform from time to time may utilize AngeLink or other partner websites as outlined in this Agreement. During the term of this Agreement and subject to the terms and conditions herein, ACF grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to install and download ACF software. You further acknowledge and expressly agree that certain limitations and restrictions may apply to any licenses and rights granted to you herein, that these rights and licenses may be exercised only by employees and agents acting on your behalf, and that these licenses and rights may not be assigned to any other person or entity or used on another’s behalf.

You agree and acknowledge that we own all associated intellectual property rights relating to ACF and that all rights not expressly granted herein are expressly reserved by ACF at all times. Further you acknowledge and agree that this Agreement does not grant a license or any other right to ACF services or the services of ACF partners. Your use of ACF services is subject to the terms and conditions of any agreement between you and ACF pursuant herein. We do not charge you a fee for becoming a Participating Nonprofit or for using the Nonprofit Area or any of our ACF services.

As a User of the ACF Platform, you acknowledge and expressly agree that you have the right to provide all information in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance partnership and you have the right to authorize ACF to enter into this Agreement on behalf of your nonprofit organization. You expressly concur that you have the right to grant the licenses to ACF herein; and your use of materials or rights licensed hereunder, will not infringe the intellectual property rights or similar rights of any third-party. You may use ACF’s logo in furtherance of your fundraising efforts connected to the Platform.

Indemnification:

When accessing the ACF Platform, you acknowledge and fully agree to indemnify, release, hold ACF and its designees, employees, directors and officers, harmless from all damages, losses, costs and/or expenses, as well as all attorneys’ fees, claims, damages, awards, fines, as well as injury or death that may arise from your use of the ACF Platform, any Nonprofit Campaign, Donation, or any User-Generated Content. You also indemnify, release, and hold ACF and its designees, employees, directors and officers harmless from any and all damages, losses, costs and/or expenses relating to your access to the Platform, as well as any violation of these Terms of Service or your violation of any rights of any User, charity, organization, or other person.

You acknowledge and agree that ACF has the right to conduct its own defense against any claim whatsoever and that you will indemnify ACF for the costs of its defense including all attorney’s fees and any other fees or expenses that may apply for any reason. If you are a resident of California, by accessing the Platform you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, indicating “[a] general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, and that if known by him or her would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.” If you are a person who is a resident of another jurisdiction in the U.S. or outside the country, you fully agree to waive any similar statute, regulation or law.

If ACF requires you to provide defense of any matter for which indemnity may be due herein, ACF may participate in such defense by counsel of its choice at its own expense. Unless ACF first provides consent in writing, you are not permitted to settle any claim for which indemnity is due hereunder, unless such settlement completely and forever releases ACF and the other indemnified parties with respect to such claim, or unless ACF provides its prior express written consent. Any settlement imposing or requiring ACF to take or refrain from taking any action will require the prior express written consent of ACF Nonprofit Alliance.

Misc. Provisions:

ACF provides our programs to charity partners (if approved in or sole discretion) to amplify the impact of charitable donations. In accessing the ACF Platform, you acknowledge and expressly agree that ACF provides these services on a best effort basis, and makes no further representations or warranties thereafter (whether express or implied), nor do we make any representation or warranty about the performance, accuracy or availability of the ACF Platform. Further, you acknowledge that ACF makes no representation or warranty relating to registration requirements or applicable state or local tax regulations relating to any potential tax benefits under this Agreement.

In no event will ACF be liable to you for any reason regardless of the nature of the claim, including failure or delay in remittance, cost delay, lost revenue, lost data or any other reason. If you have authorized a third-party to enter into this Agreement on your behalf (such as an association, agent or nonprofit organization), you agree that you are responsible for any acts or omissions pursuant to that third-party contractor, and that ACF has no responsibility under this Agreement or any liability arising from any third-party’s act or omissions. You acknowledge and expressly agree that this Agreement serves as the core document between you and ACF herein.

This Agreement is effective upon acceptance and approval of your charity’s ACF’s Nonprofit Alliance partnership and remains in effect until terminated by either party. You may cancel your enrollment in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance program at any time, for any reason by providing 7 days advance written notice to ACF of your intent to do so.

If you breach this Agreement at any time, ACF may determine in our sole discretion that you are in violation or breach of this Agreement and may not permit you to remedy this breach. ACF reserves the right to terminate this Agreement for any reason and at any time by notifying you in writing in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. If ACF removes your nonprofit from our Platform at any time, we will attempt on a best effort basis to remove your charity’s name, mission statement and logo from the ACF Platform at which time the licenses you have granted to ACF for this purpose will expire.

This Agreement, together with any policies and procedures herein such as the Nonprofit Alliance Policy, ACF Privacy Policy and/or Donation Remittance Policy, constitutes the entire Agreement between ACF and you, and supersedes all previous negotiations, understandings and agreements between ACF and you for any reason. No terms or materials in this Agreement are intended to create a joint venture, partnership, employee relationship, and neither party is acting as an agent of the other party. You acknowledge and expressly agree that neither party has any authority to make any commitments on behalf of the other party or can bind the other party in any way.

By using the ACF Platform, you acknowledge and agree that any donations made on the AngeLink Platform for a nonprofit organization will be granted to recommended charities pursuant to the ACF Donor Terms of Service, on a best efforts basis. Donors will receive a receipt of their donation from ACF with the donation date that their donation was made to ACF and ACF grants will be made consistent with applicable laws, regulations and ACF policies. ACF holds all donations in a U.S. based non-interest bearing bank account prior to grant distribution. However, a charity’s response to ACF correspondence and/or a charity’s response time to enroll in ACF’s Nonprofit Alliance determines the timing and manner of ACF grants.

We provide notice pursuant to this Agreement by any means of contact provided in your Nonprofit Profile and notice will be effective when sent. If you do not provide appropriate contact information as required, you waive your right to receive notices under this Agreement during the period of such failure. Notices from you to ACF must be given by email or other means provided within the ACF Platform and will be deemed distributed when properly received.

ACF reserves the right to further amend this Agreement at any time and for any reason. Please note that all amended AngeLink terms on our Platform shall automatically be effective and legally binding upon 14 days after having been posted on the ACF Platform. Your continuation as a Participating Nonprofit, and/or your continued access to or use of the Platform after such 14 day period will constitute your complete consent and acceptance to all such amended terms. If you do not wish to accept the amended terms, you may terminate this Agreement as set forth in this Agreement. Apart from such posting by us, this Agreement may not otherwise be amended except in a written document (i) that expressly references this Agreement and/or any affected amended terms as posted by us and (ii) that is executed by both you and us.

If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void, illegal, invalid, inoperative, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected and shall continue in effect, and the invalid provision shall be deemed modified to the least degree necessary to remedy such invalidity.

You may not assign this Agreement without our prior express written consent. Any attempted assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. We may assign this Agreement to any third party without your consent. All the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon such assignment, shall inure to the benefit of, and shall be enforceable by the respective successors and permitted assigns of you and us.

The ACF’s failure to exercise any right partially or fully will not be considered a waiver of that right, unless we so state in writing to you. The waiver of any breach shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right or be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other term of this Agreement. Any remedies made available to us by the terms of this Agreement are cumulative and are without prejudice to any other remedies that may be available to us in law or equity.

Any dispute between you and ACF Nonprofit Alliance partners which may not be resolved by negotiation will be submitted to mediation. If mediation fails, such dispute will be handled under arbitration, under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, or any comparable entity you may have subsequently agreed to in writing. Any arbitration award issued by the arbitrator shall be final, binding, and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that unauthorized use of our proprietary materials, information or technology may cause irreparable harm to ACF for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy. Accordingly, we have the right, without necessity of posting bond, to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from any court of competent jurisdiction to protect our rights in intellectual property or confidential information.

All other relevant ACF policies to this Agreement will be incorporated into this Agreement. This Agreement shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of Delaware regarding its principles of conflict of laws. Venue for mediation, arbitration, or litigation of any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of, in connection with, or in relation to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be proper only within a mediation or arbitration process or in a tribunal of competent jurisdiction within Delaware.

Welcome to AngeLink Community Foundation, (“ACF”). ACF is a 501(c)(3) public charity, Federal Tax ID: 85-2671534 with a mission to empower women and organizations that support women through charitable grants and distributions. We operate programs to support our mission and partnerships with other organizations and charities to enable users of our technology partner, AngeLink, Inc. to donate to nonprofit organizations.

These ACF Donor Terms of Service, constitute a legal, binding contract and apply to your access to and use of the ACF platform, including the ACF website and/or mobile applications (the “ACF Platform” or “Platform”). ACF reserves the right, at our sole and exclusive discretion to update these Terms of Service. Your continued access to or use of the ACF Platform constitutes your agreement to the Terms of Service as valuable and sufficient consideration and that you agree to be bound by these Terms. If for any reason you do not agree to or accept the updated Terms of Service, you must discontinue your access to and use of the ACF Platform and exit immediately.

A “Charity” is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization recognized by the United States Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3), (c)(4) charitable organization. Anyone who accesses or uses the ACF Platform is referred to individually and collectively in these Terms of Use as a “User” or “Users”. For purposes of these Terms of Use: “User” and “Users” may be referred to as “you”, “your” and/or “yours”; and, “ACF” may be referred to as “us”, “we”, and/or “our” and shall mean and include ACF representatives and assigns.

ACF offers programs to enable donors to fund nonprofits to make a powerful positive impact. Our core values are rooted in fundamental human kindness and compassion. All donations made to a nonprofit on our technology partner AngeLink’s platform are made as voluntary gifts to ACF, which is a donor-advised fund. At the time of their donation, donors will receive a tax receipt from ACF. You will disregard any additional tax receipt you may receive from an ACF charity partner that may be forwarded to you as a duplicative receipt to ACF’s grant to that charity.

ACF grants funds to charities enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance pursuant to the ACF Nonprofit Alliance User Agreement. Charities must be enrolled in the Nonprofit Alliance to receive funds.

By making a donation to ACF, you acknowledge and expressly agree that your donation is made to ACF as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) under Section 501(c)(3) as a tax-exempt public charity, Federal Tax ID: 85-2671534. ACF receives donations and remits grants to nonprofits as donor-recommended funds. ACF does not grant to non-operating private foundations or directly to individuals.

When you make a donation to ACF, it is made as a voluntary gift to ACF, and you may recommend that ACF remit your donation as a grant to a recommended nonprofit. ACF is operating as a donor-advised fund. When you make a donor-recommended donation, you expressly acknowledge that the grant will not be used for any impermissible benefits such as to confer a benefit to you, a family member or entity you control, and that the grant does not pay for goods or services that you have or will receive, nor does it satisfy a legally binding charitable pledge such as an auction, sweepstakes or gala event for your benefit or that of any family member or affiliate.

By using ACF, you acknowledge that your donations may be granted to recommended charities pursuant to the ACF Donor Terms of Service herein and that you will receive a receipt of your donation from ACF with the donation date that your donation was made to ACF. ACF grants will be made consistent with applicable laws, regulations and ACF policies.

All ACF grants will be made to nonprofits pursuant to the ACF Donation Remittance Policy. By using ACF, you acknowledge that ACF pursues several protocols to connect and engage with nonprofits pursuant to donor-recommended fund distribution, on a best effort basis, to grant funds to the donor’s recommended charities. However, ACF does not guarantee that your funds will be successfully granted to your recommended charity, pursuant to the ACF Nonprofit User Agreement. All donations to nonprofits are made through ACF and ACF has express, exclusive legal control and authority over all donor-recommended donations. ACF may redirect funds to another comparable or similar charitable organization or to support ACF’s mission to support and empower women, if ACF is unable to direct funds per your recommendation.

ACF does not charge other nonprofits a fee to process and complete donor recommended grants to charities. However, you acknowledge and expressly agree that any applicable third-party payment or transaction processing fees will be deducted from any ACF donor-recommended grants.

In order for your donation to ACF to be considered tax-deductible, it must be a final, irrevocable gift to ACF as required by law. Donations to the ACF may be refundable within ACF’s sole discretion within 30 days of donationIf, in ACF’s sole and exclusive discretion, a campaign is determined to be misrepresented, fraudulent, or in breach of our technology partner, AngeLink’s Terms of Service, that campaign will be terminated and all donations will be contributed to a similar charity or to ACF to be used in its sole discretion. See ACF’s Donation Refund Policy.

Your personal data that may be provided on the ACF platform will be treated in accordance with the ACF Privacy Policy, and may be shared with nonprofits who may be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance pursuant to a donor-recommended ACF grant to that charity, unless you have donated anonymously. ACF will not share your data with any charity that is not enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance.

Indemnity

When accessing the ACF Platform you acknowledge and fully agree to indemnify, release, hold ACF and its designees, employees, directors and officers, harmless from all damages, losses, costs and/or expenses, as well as all attorneys’ fees, claims, damages, awards, fines, as well as injury or death that may arise from your use of the ACF Platform, any Nonprofit Campaign, Donation or any User Generated Content. You also indemnify, release, and hold ACF and its designees, employees, directors and officers harmless from any and all damages, losses, costs and/or expenses related to your access to the Platform, as well as any violation of these Terms of Service or your violation of any rights of any User, Charity, organization, or other person. You acknowledge and agree that ACF has the right to conduct its own defense against any claim whatsoever and that you will indemnify ACF for the costs of its defense including all attorney’s fees and any other fees or expenses that may apply for any reason. If you are a resident of California, by accessing the Platform you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, indicating “[a] general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, and that if known by him or her would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.” If you are a person who is a resident of another jurisdiction in the U.S. or outside the country, you fully agree to waive any similar statute, regulation or law.

Arbitration

By using the ACF Platform, you agree that any disputes that may arise between us will be resolved by binding, confidential, individual arbitration and you hereby waive your right to a jury trial or to participate in a class action litigation. Please carefully review the disputes section below because by entering into this agreement you expressly acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand all of the terms of this binding agreement. In addition, when using the platform you will be subject to additional applicable policies, including without limitation, our Privacy Policy which is hereby incorporated by reference into the ACF Terms of Service (provided, however, in the event of conflict, these Terms of Service take precedence). ACF will resolve any such conflicts in our sole discretion, and all of our determinations shall be final.

Any arbitration between you and ACF shall be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules as outlined in these Terms of Service. You may obtain the AAA filing forms by contacting AAA directly.

If a party intends to seek arbitration you must send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by Express Mail with signature required or by certified Mail or if the other party has not provided a current physical address, then by email. The Notice of Arbitration must describe the basis of the dispute or claim and set forth the demand for relief sought. AngeLink will make a good faith effort to resolve the claim directly, but if we aren’t successful within 60 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, either party may initiate arbitration proceedings. All arbitration proceedings between us shall remain confidential. In the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by either you or AngeLink shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount which exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by ACF in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, we will pay you the higher of the amount awarded by the arbitrator or $10,000.

If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms of Service, ACF will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000 in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at an agreed upon location. However, if the claim is for $10,000 or less, AngeLink may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephone hearing, or an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county of your billing address. If the arbitration finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in the Federal Rule of Civil procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse us for all monies previously disbursed by ACF that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

Notwithstanding the above, you may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if you opt-out of these arbitration procedures within 30 days from the date that you first consent to these Terms of Service (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out by mailing a written notification to AngeLink: 1130 Creekside Parkway, Suite 110835, Naples, FL 34108. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out will have no adverse effect on your relationship with AngeLink. You are responsible for ensuring the ACF’s receipt of your opt out notice, and you therefore may wish to send a notice by means that provide a written receipt. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid.

You and ACF acknowledge and fully agree that either party may bring claims to the fullest extent permissible by law against the other only in your or our individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class action member or any potential class or representative proceeding. Additionally, we both fully agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding or any kind without prior express written consent by both AngeLink and you.

If this disputes section is found for any reason to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this disputes section will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described below will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms of Service.

ACF agrees to keep confidential the arbitration proceedings, all information exchanged between us, and any settlement offers, unless required by law or requested by law enforcement, court proceedings or government authority. However, both parties agree that we may each disclose this information to our respective accountants, insurance providers and auditors in confidence.

You acknowledge and fully agree that you are solely responsible for your User Generated Content and all communications with any other User when you access the Platform and that we bear no responsibility or liability herein. ACF reserves the right to take action in any way with disputes for any reason.

For any claims or disputes that are not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and AngeLink fully agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Delaware. Any failure of AngeLink to enforce or exercise any provision or right of these Terms of Service does not constitute a waiver of any kind. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then both parties hereby agree that the other provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Platform or these Terms of Service must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or it shall be forever barred.

3. BACKGROUND CHECK INFORMATION.

Campaign Organizers who organize a fundraiser to benefit a nonprofit that may not be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance or listed on our third-party nonprofit database may be required by AnegLink, in its sole discretion, to perform a background check. Per AngeLink’s Terms of Service, if AngeLink, in its sole discretion, believes that the fundraiser may be misleading, fraudulent or inaccurate for any reason or that the Campaign Organizer has an intent to potentially deceive Donors, AngeLink may require a third-party background check be conducted on the Campaign Organizers and/or the Beneficiaries prior to withdrawal of funds. Depending on the outcome of the third-party background check, AngeLink reserves the sole and exclusive right to conduct further investigations on the Fundraiser, Campaign Organizer and/or Beneficiary as may be deemed necessary, in its sole discretion. AngeLink is not a background check company and does not routinely perform background checks. AngeLink uses a third-party background check vendor to perform background checks. Campaign Organizers and Beneficiaries who are requested by AngeLink to complete a background check will receive communications from the third-party background check vendor requesting to complete and submit an authorization for the background check. AngeLink does not process or store background check reports and does not control how the background check information is used. However, the third-party background check vendor will notify AngeLink if the Campaign Organizer and/or Beneficiary passes or fails the background check based on relevant factors as determined by AngeLink. By completing a background check, Campaign Organizers and Beneficiaries agree to the third-party background check vendor’s terms of use. Background checks are conducted in an effort to help verify the Campaign Organizer and/or the Beneficiary in an effort to build trust among the community, however, AngeLink does not warrant or guarantee this.

If the Fundraiser and/or the Beneficiary (as applicable) is notified that he/she failed third-party background check, the Fundraiser and/or the Beneficiary (as applicable) will be advised that he/she may contact the third-party background check company to file a dispute and provide documents to remediate any inaccuracies in the background check per the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

4 LIMITATIONS OF BACKGROUND CHECKS.

On the AngeLink Platform, background checks are not automatically performed on Campaign Organizers and/or Beneficiaries unless AngeLink, in its sole discretion, believes that the fundraiser may be misleading, fraudulent or inaccurate for any reason or that the Campaign Organizer has an intent to potentially deceive Donors. In this circumstance, Campaign Organizers and Beneficiaries may be required to complete background checks prior to the release of funds. AngeLink uses third-party background check vendors to perform background checks for Campaign Organizers and Beneficiaries. It is important to note that background checks can vary in comprehensiveness according to variations among federal, state, county and/or local databases and availability of criminal history and information. Additional limitations may apply in certain jurisdictions as well. Background checks are performed only with the consent of the person about whom the background check is being performed, using information that is provided by the subject of the background check, such as name, home address, date of birth and social security number. If incorrect information is provided by the subject of the background check, the results of the background check may be inaccurate or have incorrect identifying data, which may impact the results of the background check. Additionally, some databases and/or criminal records may not be reported promptly or accurately, or due to electronic or human error, results may be incomplete or inaccurate. Background checks may be helpful to uncover potential red flags, however, Donors should not solely rely upon background checks to ensure the validity of a Campaign. AngeLink recommends that background checks be performed as only one portion of a Donor’s review of a Campaign worthiness.

5. SHARING OF INFORMATION.

Please note that AngeLink may share information we collect on our platform with ACF and/or certain third parties without notice to users. AngeLink and/or ACF may also hire third-party companies to perform business projects, and we may provide access or share user information with third-party companies for them to complete work on AngeLink’s or ACF’s behalf. These services may include advertising, marketing, data analysis, storage, security, fraud prevention, payment processing and legal services. AngeLink and ACF limit the personal information provided to these types of service providers to the extent that which is required to perform their business projects on our behalf. AngeLink and ACF jointly require all third parties to agree to maintain the confidentiality of AngeLink information. We provide user information to other users of the AngeLink platform if you make your information publicly available in a publicly accessible area of our platform. Some information users provide in forums, comments, and customer support communications may be publicly accessible.

If AngeLink engages in the purchase or sale of another business or asset such as a merger transaction, reorganization, dissolution etc., which may include the exchange of due diligence information, user information may be part of the transferred assets. AngeLink and/or ACF have the right to disclose, transfer, and access user information when we have a legitimate belief that it is necessary to comply with state, local, or federal laws including court orders, subpoenas, search warrants, or other legal processes. ACF responds to inquiries or requests from law enforcement, government, regulatory authorities, or data protection organizations to protect and defend the legal rights, privacy, safety, or property of ACF employees, agents, affiliates, subsidiaries, or agents. We may also do so for our users and to permit us to pursue remedies or participate in or defend against litigation or to limit any damages we may sustain, or to enforce this Privacy Policy or any applicable Terms of Service.

AngeLink and ACF may share user information with campaign organizers as well as nonprofit beneficiaries.

AngeLink may collect this information for research purposes as well as other purposes (e.g., to improve the AngeLink services), and we can share this information with our agents, affiliates, business partners and other third parties.

7. THIRD-PARTY INFORMATION.

You may provide AngeLink and/or ACF with third-party information when you share your campaign with friends and family. When doing so, we may request access to information stored in your email or on mobile device address books, such as emails, phone numbers, names, etc. and third-party data (“Third-Party Data”). When you use this type of feature that enables you to communicate with third parties by submitting Third-Party Data to the Services, or permitting the Services to automatically access your Third-Party Data, you acknowledge and agree that you have the authority of the relevant third-party for AngeLink to access and use this Third-Party Data and that you have notified and informed these third parties on how their information is collected and used by AngeLink and/or ACF. We reserve the right to identify you as the referring person for any messages that may be sent to them. We may use Third-Party Data to contact these providers or to send a message and communicate between you and such third-party through AngeLink. We may send additional messages and reminders to third parties on your behalf as permitted under applicable law. In all cases, any such communications sent to third parties utilizing Third-Party Data will provide a way to “opt out” of receiving additional similar communications.

8. RETENTION OF INFORMATION.

ACF only retains information for as long as required and to the extent permitted by applicable laws. When user data is no longer needed, ACF will remove it from our system and records. We then anonymize data so that users can no longer be individually identified in accordance with ACF’s corporate document retention policy. The ACF retention policy is based on various criteria, such as the type of products/services requested by users or provided to users, the time period as well as mandatory retention periods pursuant to state and federal law as well as statute of limitations. Users can access and correct information about you on the ACF platform. Users can control if certain information is publicly available to others by adjusting the settings in your account. Users may also request in writing copies of personal information about you held by us. If that information is inaccurate for any reason, please let AngeLink know at legal@angelink.com so that we can correct the information per your request.

9. UNSOLICITED INFORMATION SUBMITTED BY USER.

AngeLink also collects information via our customer support pages which may include feedback, user suggestions or other unsolicited submissions. When you send us unsolicited submissions you agree and acknowledge that AngeLink and/or ACF is under no obligation of confidentiality with respect to your unsolicited submission. You further acknowledge and agree that AngeLink and/or ACF may have your unsolicited submission, idea, or product/service suggestion already under consideration or in development, and grant AngeLink and ACF an irrevocable, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, create derivative works, modify, publish, distribute and sublicense the unsolicited submission.

AngeLink Community Foundation

hello@angelinkcf.org

All donations made through AngeLink Community Foundation (“ACF”) or our affiliated programs are made to ACF, a donor-advised fund recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) under Section 501(c)(3) code as a tax-exempt public charity Federal Tax ID: 85-2671534. All donations to ACF are made as donor recommendations to a charity recommended by the donor. ACF’s Donor Terms of Service establishes the terms under which ACF reviews all donor recommendations pursuant to this Donation Remittance Policy.

By using ACF, donors acknowledge that their donations will be granted to recommended charities only pursuant to the ACF Donor Terms of Service. Donors will receive a receipt of their donation from ACF with the donation date that their donation was made to ACF. ACF grants will be made consistent with all applicable laws, regulations and ACF policies. ACF holds all donations in a U.S. based non-interest-bearing bank account prior to grant distribution. However, a charity’s response to ACF correspondence and/or a charity’s response time to enroll in ACF’s Nonprofit Alliance may determine the timing and manner of ACF grant distributions.

ACF pursues several protocols to connect and engage with nonprofits pursuant to donor-recommended fund distribution, on a best efforts basis, to grant funds to the donor’s recommended charities. ACF grants donated funds to charities enrolled in our Nonprofit Alliance pursuant to our ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy and ACF Nonprofit Alliance Grant Approval Process on a monthly basis approximately 15 days after ACF’s receipt of funds. This schedule enables ACF to aggregate donations over a 30-day period to reduce transaction and payment processing fees and back office accounting functions on behalf of Nonprofit Alliance charities.

Your organization must be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance in order to receive an ACF grant. ACF distributes grants to Nonprofit Alliance charities via check, or in a manner as may be specified by the Nonprofit Alliance charity. Donor-recommended charities will be charged any applicable transaction fees or credit card processing fees pursuant to the third-party payment gateway selected as well as any third-party bank processing fees that may apply. Nonprofit Alliance charities can view any donor-recommended funds, including donor details (who have not donated anonymously) via our ACF technology partner site, AngeLink, Inc.

ACF will attempt, on a best effort basis, to ensure that the charity does not promote racial intolerance, hate speech or violence of any kind and that the charity complies with the ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy.

If a charity is not enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance, ACF will attempt to grant funds from donor-recommended donations to these charities on a best efforts basis. Pursuant to payment protocols of our third-party payment processor, ACF will email the charity regarding ACF’s intent to direct donor recommended funds to the charity and invite the charity to enroll with ACF Nonprofit Alliance so that the charity can receive donor-recommended funds. ACF will follow up via email, letter and/or by phone at least 3 additional times in our effort to connect with charities who are not enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance. If a charity does not enroll with ACF Nonprofit Alliance, for any reason, then ACF will attempt a fourth time to grant the funds for up to 60 days. However, if at the end of this period, a charity does not enroll in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance, and ACF is unable to remit funds to the charity or, if for any reason the check forwarded to the charity is returned or uncashed, then ACF may, in its sole discretion, apply funds to a similar nonprofit organization or to ACF in order to further ACF’s mission to support and empower women and organizations through grants and distributions.

On a best efforts basis, ACF will attempt to direct funds to the appropriate charity pursuant to the donor’s recommendation for the funds. However, ACF retains the exclusive right and all legal control over donor-recommended funds pursuant to the ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy. If for any reason a charity fails to meet the ACF review and due diligence protocols or fails to accept donor recommended funds for any reason, ACF reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to redirect donor-recommended funds to another charitable organization consistent with the ACF charitable mission to support and empower women.

Your organization must be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance in order to receive an ACF grant. Any ACF grants made to Nonprofit Alliance partners will be made pursuant to the information that the nonprofit supplied in the Nonprofit Alliance application. The partner agrees to take any actions necessary to authorize ACF to make appropriate transfers to the Nonprofit Alliance partner and the charity expressly acknowledges and agrees that it cannot hold ACF liable if the charity provided incomplete or inaccurate information relating to its bank account or preferred payment method, (if applicable). Nonprofit Alliance partners are subject to this ACF Donation Remittance Policy, the Donor Terms of Service, and all other applicable ACF policies.

In the event that ACF must redirect a donor-recommended donation to another nonprofit organization or to an ACF program, all donations remain a tax-deductible donation via ACF. If for any reason ACF must redirect donor-recommended funds, ACF will assign funds in support of the ACF mission to empower women and organizations that support women through grants and distributions to other charitable organizations.

AngeLink Community Foundation Programs

Donors expressly acknowledge and agree that all donations made to a nonprofit on our technology partner AngeLink’s platform are made as voluntarily gifts to the AngeLink Community Foundation, (“ACF”), a 501(c)(3) public charity, Federal tax ID: 85-2671534 without conditions. At the time of their donation, donors will receive a tax receipt from ACF. ACF is a donor-advised fund. In order for your donation to ACF be considered tax-deductible, it must be a final, irrevocable gift to ACF as required by law. ACF grants funds to charities enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance pursuant to the ACF Nonprofit Alliance User Agreement.

Refund Policy

Donations to ACF may be refundable within ACF’s sole discretion within 30 days of donation. By donating, you understand and agree that your donation is nonrefundable if already distributed to a charity by ACF. If, in ACF’s sole and exclusive discretion, a campaign is determined to be misrepresented, fraudulent, or in breach of our technology partner, under AngeLink’s Terms of Service, that campaign will be terminated and all donations will be contributed to a similar organization or to ACF to further its charitable objectives.

ACF, as an IRS registered 501 (c)(3) charity, provides funds to partners of its charitable Nonprofit Alliance every month. ACF is not able to provide refunds for donations that have been already granted to a charitable partner and therefore you must contact the charity partner that received the ACF grant to discuss a potential refund.

Refunds for a donation to a charity are highly unusual and may be granted by a Nonprofit Alliance partner in their sole and exclusive discretion. Circumstances under which a Nonprofit Alliance Partner refund might be granted include:

  • The donation was not authorized by the donor
  • Your donation was made by mistake or was unintentional
  • The amount donated was incorrect

ACF may update, modify or terminate this Policy in its sole and exclusive discretion without notice at any time. This Policy represents the entire understanding between you and ACF regarding potential refunds and supersedes any other oral or written documentation between ACF and you regarding any potential refund or claim. Please also review the ACF Donor Terms of Service as the TOS will supplant any terms of this Policy that may be in conflict for any reason.

This Policy does not constitute a warranty against potential fraud or misuse by a Nonprofit Alliance Partner charity nor does it constitute an insurance contract of any kind. Any terms of this Policy are not transferable or assignable by you. Any decision to grant benefits under this Policy does not constitute a waiver of ACF’s right to decline future payments in our sole and exclusive discretion.

In the event that donations are withdrawn by a nonprofit beneficiary, but later recovered by AngeLink, those donations will be contributed to a similar charity or to ACF to further its charitable objectives. ACF empowers women and organizations that support women through grants and distributions to charitable organizations. Learn more about ACF.

Terms of Service

Further, users expressly acknowledge and agree that if a charity or a fundraiser fails to enter the proper withdrawal information and/or provide required verification documentation within 90 days of receiving their first donation, their campaign may be terminated and all donations may be contributed to a similar charity or to ACF to further its charitable objectives.
