MAKING A DONATION THROUGH DVN
DVN provides online fundraising tools to non-profit organizations, individuals raising money on behalf of non-profit organizations, and individuals who wish to raise money for projects unaffiliated with a non-profit organization. Because DVN allows individuals to raise money for a large number and variety of projects, DVN has not researched every project on the site and makes no representations and does not warrant that donations to any particular project are tax-deductible.
Additionally, DVN makes no representations or warranties regarding the accuracy of any information contained in Users' profile and project pages. Users use the Site entirely at their own risk. DVN does not warrant that the information listed in a User's profile page is an accurate description of the User or a real person. DVN does not warrant that the information listed in a User's project page is an accurate description of the project, the User's intended use of donations or that the project exists. DVN does not warrant that a User who receives donations for a project will use the funds in a manner specified in their project description. If you have any reservations regarding the legitimacy of a particular organization/project, fundraiser or fundraising event, DO NOT DONATE.
FEES, INTEREST EARNED AND TAXES
The minimum donation amount is $10.
There is a 3.5% processing fee for all donations made by credit/debit card and $0.50 fee for all ACH donations—these fees are used to cover payment processing fees we pay to 3rd party providers. There are no processing fees for donations made by check.
For organizations/projects: once you receive donations from DVN, you are legally responsible for the funds (DVN no longer has liability). Furthermore, any use of these funds is strictly in your control. You must notify DVN within 30 days of receipt of funds to report an issue with the amount received. After 30 days, DVN is no longer legally liable but may make adjustments if needed. Any inquiries by donors or other parties will be referred to your organization/project.
All donations made through DVN are final and non-refundable. If a donor-initiated chargeback occurs, DVN will do what it can to resolve the situation, and if necessary, reinstate these charges. However, if a chargeback occurs, DVN will have to reduce funds scheduled to be sent to an organization/project. If funds have already been released to an organization/project, then the organization/project will have to return these funds back to DVN.
