III. Use of 1Purpose; Processing; Fees:
The services provided on the Website are free of charge to users. 1Purpose charges donors a small contribution fee at the time a contribution is made to a 529 Plan and Network for Good charges donors a small contribution fee at the time a donation is made to a charity through the Website, as provided in more detail below.
Fundraisers: The purpose of the Website is to provide to individuals a user-friendly fundraising platform to enable individuals to raise funds for charities or 529 Plans (your “cause”). To fundraise you create a profile with a described challenge. You may select a challenge from a drop-down menu or contact us with a request to add a particular activity or challenge to the drop-down menu. The challenges are goal-oriented activities, such as running, walking, losing weight, or reading. Once you create your profile and challenge plan you can then select a charity for which you are fundraising, or, alternatively, you may identify a particular 529 Plan for which you wish to fundraise. Once you complete your profile is setup, we will create a unique link which will be used to direct potential donors to your profile and enable them to make a donation. You agree that you will not send the link, or have us send the link, to individuals with whom you are not directly acquainted; you may not use our services to generate or send spam. When your selected cause is a 529 Plan and a minor is involved, you hereby represent and warrant that you are the parent or legal guardian of the child who’s account information is being provided in connection with the services or have received the express consent of the parent or legal guardian of the child who’s account information is being provided in connection with the services to use the account information of such minor.
Donations/Contributions: With the unique link created for your profile donors will be directed to your profile pages on our Website and enable the donor to make a donation through the Website for your selected cause. Depending on whether your selected cause is fundraising for a charity or for a college 529 Plan, the procedures, processing and fees will vary. We want to make sure you fully understand how we process contributions and we invite you to contact us with any questions about the processing of contributions.
Processing Donations to Charities; Fees: If the selected cause is a charity, all payments and donations will be processed entirely by Network for Good. To assist with the administration and facilitation of your donation to the chosen charity, Network for Good subtracts a nominal 4.75% fee before depositing the funds with the charity. 1Purpose does not profit from or deduct any portion of the donation when the selected cause is a charity and the donation is made to the charity. Please note that because we do not process payments made to charities (as they are processed entirely by Network for Good) we cannot control the timeliness of such processing or disbursements of the donation to the charity.
Processing Contributions to 529 College Plans; Fees: Unlike donations made to charities, which are processed by Network for Good, 1Purpose independently processes all contributions made to 529 Plans through the Website. To assist with the administration and facilitation of the 529 contribution to the chosen 529 Plan, 1Purpose subtracts a nominal 5% fee before dispersing the funds to the selected account. We will disburse contributions (whether by mailing a check or otherwise) to the selected 529 account within two (2) weeks of processing your payment.
