GLOBAL HEALTH VOLUNTEER PROGRAM FUNDRAISING

A. PROGRAM DONATION

  1. Any Volunteer who wishes to travel with FIMRC agrees to pay the applicable Program Donation in exchange for participating in FIMRC’s Global Health Volunteer Program.

  2. Any supporting contributions received or fundraised above and beyond the Program Donation will be used to directly support the project site to which the volunteer travels or FIMRC's global operations as a whole.

  3. All contributions are non-refundable.

  4. The non-refundable deposit due by the volunteer is automatically subtracted from the total Program Donation. Deadlines for payment of the deposit can be found in the volunteer’s welcome letter.

  5. All Program Donation balances are due on or before the assigned due date. If the Program Donation is not paid in full by the due date, the fundraiser will be assessed a $125 per week late fee. In the event of a trip cancellation, the Volunteer may be able to re-schedule their trip at a later date and receive the unused credit from their prior trip.

  6. If the volunteer does not meet all conditions outlined in the welcome letter by the due date, the volunteer’s trip will be cancelled and no refunds will be made.

B. REFUNDS

  1. No refunds will be given for any unused portions of the program or as a result of the volunteer’s failure or inability to participate in the FIMRC program.

  2. Contributions from sponsors and donors are not refundable under any circumstances.

  3. If the fundraiser’s program is cancelled due to non-payment, contributions will not be refunded to the sponsors.

  4. In the event of a trip cancellation by the volunteer, the volunteer may use the funds for another FIMRC program within one year of cancellation.

  5. In the event of a trip cancellation by FIMRC, the volunteer will be rerouted to another project site and the volunteer will incur no additional Program Donation costs.

C. FUNDRAISING

  1. By creating a fundraising profile with FIMRC, a fundraiser agrees to the program donation policy outlined in section A and the refund policy outlined in section B.

  2. FIMRC recommends that all fundraising be conducted directly through the “FIMRC Give” platform. Contributions made through other fundraising websites often assess a processing fee. If the fundraiser chooses to fundraise through an outside fundraising website, FIMRC will accept the contribution; however, the fundraisers due date will not be extended. Tax receipts for U.S. residents cannot be issued from FIMRC for contributions made on outside fundraising sites. These sites usually have their own rules and restrictions that can prevent FIMRC from applying any contributions from them directly to the FIMRC Program Donation.

D. MATCHING GIFTS

  1. Most companies offering matching gift programs issue their checks quarterly or semi-annually; therefore extending the period of time for the gift to be issued. Fundraisers waiting on matching gifts must pay the balance of their Program Donation on or before their due date. FIMRC does not extend due dates for fundraisers who are awaiting matching gift checks.

  2. No portion of a matching gift is refundable. If a fundraiser is expecting to receive a matching gift from his or her company, neither the original contribution nor the amount matched are eligible for refund to the fundraiser or to the company. For example, if the fundraiser’s contribution to the Program Donation is $300 and the company gives a matching gift of $300, then neither contribution is refundable.

  3. If the fundraiser or sponsors of the fundraiser plan to apply for a matching gift, they must do so at least 90 days prior to the program start date.

E. TAX DOCUMENTS

  1. All contributions made within the United States are 100% tax deductible.

  2. All online contributions will be accompanied with a tax receipt which will automatically be issued to the e-mail address that was provided to FIMRC during the payment process.
