The claim must include a reason for said claim along with any evidence should the claim be a result of a disingenuous, misleading or fraudulent Campaign.

Any donation you make to a Charity through this Service may be subject to a Services fee as described on our blog fees.

However, fundify may from time to time allow registered and verified charitable organizations to, as part of the Campaign’s rewards program; provide official receipts for donations independent of fundify. As well, approved Charities may be permitted to continue thier Campaigns in an "ongoing" status with no end time and leverage continued fundraising.

Specific to Charities, it is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the donations you receive through your use of this Service.
