2. The Services
In addition to our free methods of entry, each Campaign allows you to support one or more causes (each a Designated Grantee) by making a monetary donation (each a Donation) to Win Together TR, a U.S. 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity. Win Together TR has partnered with the Company to make giving internationally and domestically safe, easy and effective for donors by raising charitable donations from members of the public to fund monetary grants to other organizations, including the Designated Grantees featured on our Campaign pages.
For most Campaigns on the Company platform, approximately 10 - 15 business days following Win Together TR’s receipt of donations, and so long as the Designated Grantee continues to qualify as an eligible recipient of Win Together TR grants, Win Together TR will make a grant to the Designated Grantee equal to the net proceeds received as part of the Campaign. For certain Campaigns in which the Company’s fee is based on a percentage of the Donations net of all cost and expenses, an initial grant is made approximately 10 – 15 business days following the end of the Campaign, and a final grant (the initial grant and final grant are collectively equal to the net proceeds) is made approximately 60-90 days following the close of the Campaign, after reconciliation of all expenses. Specific timelines are the sole discretion of Win Together TR, acting in good faith.
The net proceeds to be distributed by Win Together TR as grants is generally equal to the total Donations received in connection with a Campaign less costs and expenses associated with that Campaign, which may include advertising, payment processing, Prize fulfillment (other than Prizes or experiences that are donated), and the costs of making the Campaign a success. In addition, as part of the net proceeds calculation, approximately 10% of every Donation goes to the Company to cover the cost of providing and maintaining the technology and team that makes this all happen. See the Rules for each Campaign for the specific calculation of net proceeds applicable to the Campaign.
While Win Together TR takes all reasonable steps to attempt to grant donated funds to the Designated Grantee listed on the Campaign page, including pre-qualifying the Designated Grantee for a grant, Win Together TR retains exclusive legal control over all Donations. In the rare cases when a Designated Grantee fails to meet the requirements of Win Together TR's grantmaking policies and procedures, Win Together TR reserves the right to reassign funds to another organization of its choice, and will aim to grant the funds to another organization that supports a similar charitable cause.
Anyone who donates through the Company platform is making a donation to Win Together TR, and receives chances to win Prizes, however, no Donation is required to enter to win a Campaign, and a Donation does not increase your chances of winning a Campaign. Because a Donation is not required to enter, and because Win Together TR is a U.S. tax-exempt charity, all Donations made by U.S. donors through the Company platform are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If your Donation is accompanied by a Campaign perk, the amount of your Donation that is deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes may be limited to the excess of the amount contributed over the value of goods or services provided. If you have any questions regarding your tax obligations, you should consult with your own tax advisor. In the event that you need a duplicate or replacement receipt for tax purposes, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Except in the event of fraud and a valid chargeback by a credit card issuer, all Donations are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
4. Refunds, returns, and exchanges
Your Donation through the Company platform supports an awesome cause and enters you to win an awesome prize(s). Donations are non-refundable once a Campaign has closed. If your Donation is accompanied by a Campaign perk, please note that delivery time varies based on the item; specifics about shipment will be listed in the product description. Due to the exclusive nature of all Campaign perks, we apologize for not being able to accommodate exchanges. We will only refund donations if we’re unable to deliver the perk you were promised.
