Terms and Conditions
Dollar Giving, Inc. (referred to as us or we) is a nonprofit non-stock corporation registered in the State of Connecticut, USA. We operate the website powerthruthepowder.org and dollargiving.org (the Website or collectively Websites). These are the Terms and Conditions which govern each use you make of the Websites, its content and donation payment services provided through the Websites.
These Terms and Conditions apply separately to each visit and single donation that you make. Except as provided for in section 6, ‘Recurring Donations’, and unless specified by you, they do not form a contract allowing for future or successive transactions to be set up. By confirming on the Website that you wish to make a donation you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions for that donation.
(1) The donation services
Your donation is being made to Dollar Giving, Inc. Dollar Giving is designated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the Internal Revenue Service. Dollar Giving organizes events, processes donations and disburses funds as grants to charities based on donor designations through powerthruthepowder.org and dollargiving.org. We will use your donation as prescribed by you to cover costs associated with Power Thru the Powder up until the goals for the campaign are met at which time we will use excess donations at our discretion for future Power Thru the Powder events or as distributions as grants to our nonprofit partners, but always within our stated charitable objectives.
Like any tax-deductible charitable donation, your donation cannot be cancelled or returned once it has been processed. Dollar Giving will conduct due diligence to make sure the charity(s) we list on powerthruthepowder.org and dollargiving.org meet public accountability standards.
All payments through the Website are to be made by credit or debit card. We also accept donations by check. Checks can be made payable to Dollar Giving and sent to 60 Carriage Dr., Tolland CT 06084, USA. Please note that we will not accept payment in the form of cash.
Once you confirm to us through the Website that you wish to proceed with your donation your transaction will be processed through one of two payment services providers, Stripe or PayPal, Inc. By confirming that you wish to proceed with your donation you authorize Stripe or PayPal to request funds from your credit or debit card provider.
Reference to Dollar Giving will show as “DOLLARGIVI”, “DOLLARGIVING”, “DOLLAR GIVING, INC.” or may show up as the name of the charity you donated to, e.g. “THE VILLAGE” followed by our phone number “8603750127” on credit card and bank statements.
(2) Income Tax deductible donations
Donations made to Dollar Giving are tax deductible up to the limits set forth by the Internal Revenue Service. If you have any doubts about whether your donation is deductible on federal income taxes we recommend you consult your own tax professional about any accounting, taxation or financial consequences of making a donation that may affect you.
Dollar Giving makes no guarantees and provides no advice on whether a donation is or is not tax deductible for income tax purposes.
(3) Unauthorized card use
If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider.
(4) Information from you
Before we can process a donation you must provide us with (i) your name, address and email address; and (ii) details of the credit or debit card that you wish to use to fund the donation. We will use this information to process your donation. It is your responsibility to ensure you have provided us with the correct information.

Under no circumstances will your payment information be transmitted or shared with Dollar Giving, Inc.
(5) Refund policy

(6) Recurring donations
These Donation Payment Terms and Conditions will only apply to successive donations made through the Website where you have set up a recurring donation.
