Limited License and Acceptable Use
Razoo hereby grants you a limited, non-exclusive license to create fundraisers on the Razoo Website and to use the photos, videos, graphics, information, other online tools and resources, and related services available on the Razoo Website (collectively, the “Tools”) solely in accordance with these Term of Use for the purpose of raising contributions for the cause advertised on your fundraising page.
Donating on Razoo
Tax-Deductible Contributions to Charitable Causes
Donations made on the Razoo Website in support of Registered Charities, Projects of Registered Charities, or Charity Fundraisers (collectively, “Charitable Causes”) are complete and final charitable gifts to Razoo Foundation and are not refundable. The Razoo Foundation is a tax-exempt public charity described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code which maintains a donor-advised fund. A donor-advised fund (“DAF”) is defined by Congress as a public charity that receives completed gifts from donors while allowing them the privilege of advising on the distribution of their grant to other charities and charitable causes. Normally your donation to a Charitable Cause made through the Razoo Website goes to and will be receipted by Razoo Foundation as a donor-advised contribution. Razoo Foundation makes every effort to honor donor advisements and is authorized to do so for advisements to public charities appearing on the Razoo Website as Registered Charities. Occasionally, for specific fundraising events, Razoo will collaborate with other local public charities. In those cases, the event website and other publicity will indicate if contributions will be receipted directly by the local charity, instead of by Razoo Foundation.
It is Razoo Foundation’s normal practice to regrant 93.1% less $0.30 per advisement to the qualifying tax-exempt entity and/or cause advised, and to retain 4.9% for platform costs and Razoo Foundation’s expenses plus 2% and $0.30 cents per advisement transaction for credit card processing costs, a total of 6.9% plus $0.30 per advisement. A regrant to the advised charity and/or cause is generally made on the 10th of the month following receipt of the advised contribution in the previous calendar month (e.g, a donation on July 5th would be regranted on August 10th). Razoo Foundation makes every reasonable effort to respect the wishes of its donors. However, to comply with federal tax laws and Internal Revenue Service regulations, Razoo Foundation must retain the exclusive authority, discretion, and legal control over all donated funds. In the rare event that the charity you have advised does not satisfy Razoo Foundation’s criteria or otherwise does not enable or accept payment (reasons for this include issues like: they don’t or cannot accept donations, are not recognized by the IRS as a public charity, or are not in good standing with federal or state regulators, etc.), Razoo Foundation may select an alternate charity to receive your advised funds.
In certain instances, Razoo Foundation may retain an additional percentage to support the efforts of the charity partner in conducting a giving event. Any additional retained percent will be disclosed on the home page for the giving event and on the final checkout page prior to completing your donation. For more information please feel free to contact email@example.com.
Charged Back or Refunded Donations
In accordance with IRS regulations, the Razoo Foundation enforces a strict “No Refunds” policy for contributions made to the donor-advised fund. However, the Foundation recognizes circumstances wherein reversal of transactions are necessary. These include Charge Back and Gross Error transactions.
A Charge Back transaction occurs when the credit card holder files a dispute with their bank stating that either they did not authorize or recognize the transaction on their credit card or bank statement. The Razoo Foundation staff will provide supporting documentation in an effort to resolve the Charge Back case in favor of the Foundation. However, if the Foundation is unable to resolve such cases and the case is referred to pre-arbitration, the Foundation will accept the Charge Back transaction. Further, the Razoo Foundation will, under its variance power authority, not regrant any funds to the advised organization that has been charged back. If the Charge Back funds have already been regranted to the advised organization, no attempt will be made to compel the organization to return the funds since the regrant of an advisement is considered complete and unrestricted. However, the Razoo Foundation will not issue any further regrants of donor-advised funds until it receives additional funds from donors or other sources advised for the organization equal to the amount of the Charge Back.
A Gross Error transaction occurs when then credit cardholder / donor makes a transaction for an amount grossly different than the intended amount. For example, a donor makes a $10,000.00 donation instead of $10.00 donation. A Gross Error transaction DOES NOT include advisements: made to the wrong organization or fundraising page, containing an incorrect name, dedication, or designation, or any other non-financial reason. The Razoo Foundation retains sole authority to determine the exact criteria of a Gross Error transaction. A Gross Error transaction refund will only be considered if Razoo Foundation has not yet regranted the funds to the designated organization (see “Tax-Deductible Contributions to Charitable Causes” section for more information on regrants). Once funds are regranted, the donor should contact the advised organization in order to attempt to correct the error.
Contributions to Personal Causes
Credit Card Anti-Laundering Policy
Only the authorized credit card holder may donate on the Razoo Website. A third party may not use the donor's card information or enter donations on behalf of the donor. This practice is known as "credit card laundering" and violates Visa and MasterCard usage agreements. Razoo may report any such abuses to the appropriate authorities. This restriction does not preclude the use of computer terminals or kiosks, with access to the Razoo Website, for the authorized credit card holder to utilize in order to make a donation.
No Goods and Services in Exchange for Donations to Charitable Causes
Federal law prohibits charities from promising or providing goods and services (e.g., tickets to events or raffles) in exchange for making a donation to a donor advised fund such as Razoo Foundation. Razoo Foundation may only accept pure contributions and not part gift and part sale transactions.
Ultimate Responsibility for Donor Expressions of Preference about Use of Funds
The Razoo Website provides an opportunity for you as a donor to indicate preferences for specific use of the funds you donate in fields provided on the donation form. If you express such a preference, it will be noted in the donation report made available to the applicable Registered Charity Admin(s) and/or Fundraising Page Admin. However, indication of such a preference does not guarantee you that funds will be used in a manner consistent with any such preference, and neither Razoo nor Razoo Foundation are responsible for or will be held liable for the ultimate handling of such preferences. You hereby acknowledge that any designation of a donation's use is merely an expression of preference and does not give rise to any contractual obligations.
Giving Card Redemption
Redemption of a Giving Card represents an advisement for the regrant of funds that have been previously donated to Razoo Foundation and can be used for contributions to Charitable Causes. Giving Cards cannot be used to donate to Personal Causes on the Razoo Website. Giving Cards have no monetary value, are not refundable, and may not be sold. An advisement through redemption of a Giving Card is not a tax deductible contribution. It is Razoo Foundation’s normal practice to regrant 93.1% less $0.30 per advisement of a Giving Card redemption to the qualifying tax-exempt entity and/or cause advised, and to retain 4.9% for platform costs and Razoo Foundation’s expenses plus 2% and $0.30 cents per advisement transaction for credit card processing costs, a total of 6.9% plus $0.30 per advisement. A regrant to the advised recipient charity is generally made on the 10th of the month following receipt of the advised contribution in the previous calendar month (e.g, a donation on July 5 th would be regranted on August 10th). Razoo Foundation makes every reasonable effort to honor the advisements made through Giving Cards. However, to comply with federal tax laws and Internal Revenue Service regulations, Razoo Foundation must retain the exclusive authority, discretion, and legal control over all donated funds. In the rare event that the charity you have advised does not satisfy Razoo Foundation’s criteria or otherwise does not enable or accept payment (reasons for this include issues like: they don’t or cannot accept donations, are not recognized by the IRS as a public charity, or are not in good standing with federal or state regulators, etc.), Razoo Foundation may select an alternate charity to receive your advised funds.
You acknowledge that the prohibitions on receiving any personal benefits described in these Terms, equally apply when redeeming a Giving Card or making any other advisement on the Razoo Website.
Privacy and security of donor information is of vital importance to us. We will not share or sell names of donors without their consent. When you contribute to any cause on the Razoo Website, you grant us permission to access your donation records at any time and to use the information you provide to process your donation . Unless you indicate at the time of making your donation that you would like to remain anonymous, we or Razoo Foundation will make available to the Registered Charity and/or Fundraiser online reports identifying, where available, your name, address, email, and transaction accounting details.
If you are a Registered Charity Admin or Fundraising Page Admin, donor information will be shared with you via a report accessible on your Registered Charity Page or Fundraising Page on the Razoo Website unless the donor opts out and chooses to remain anonymous at the time of donation, in which case we will honor the donor’s request for anonymity and not share the donor’s identity.
If applicable, donor information will also be shared with organizations administering giving events in which the donor participates, unless the donor indicates at the time of making your donation that they wish to remain anonymous.
Razoo Foundation Reporting
If you receive a regrant of funds from Razoo Foundation, then you may request in writing a report from Razoo Foundation of aggregate contributions received over the course of the calendar year within 10 business days after Razoo Foundation receives the request. This information is also available online to all Registered Charities.
Razoo Foundation Financial Information

The remaining provisions of these terms and conditions shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver or forbearance to seek a remedy by any party of any breach by any other party of any of its covenants, obligations and agreements hereunder shall be a waiver of any subsequent breach of any other covenant, obligation or agreement.

Any purported assignment in violation of the preceding sentence is void and of no effect. These terms and conditions are binding upon the parties' respective successors and permitted assigns. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all remedies provided for herein shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to either party at law, in equity or otherwise.
The Parties shall act as independent contractors, and nothing contained in these Terms shall be construed to (i) give either party the power to direct and control the day-to-day activities of the other, (ii) constitute the parties as agents, partners, joint ventures, co-owners, employer/employee franchisor/franchisee, or otherwise as participants in a joint or common undertaking, or (iii) allow either party to create or assume any obligation on behalf of the other party for any purposes whatsoever.
