THE CLUBFOOT RESEARCH FOUNDATION
DONOR SUPPORT POLICY


The Clubfoot Research Foundation  (hereafter referred to as The  Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. Contributions made to The Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent that is permitted by law and will be used solely for the purpose  of furthering the organization's mission. Donors may designate contributions to specific projects. The use of those funds will be used with the donor intent and won’t be used elsewhere unless agreed upon with the donor after further discussions.

 

In accordance with IRS regulations, acknowledgement letters will be issued to all donors for all donations 
received  unless otherwise specified (i.e third party donations where the donor donates  through their work 
company.

 

The company claims the tax benefit from those so a donor will receive and acknowledgment letter but not  for  the  specific  amount  of  the donation).  If an item or service is exchanged for a donation, an acknowledgment letter will be issued stating what portion of the donation is tax deductible. All in-kind gifts will be documented and acknowledged for the portion of the donation that is tax deductible.

 

Our Commitment To You
As a supporter of The Foundation, you are at the core of everything we do,  and we hope to provide you 
with a positive and rewarding experience. Below is our promise to you:


1.    Personal information provided by the donor will not be shared for any reason unless the donor grants permission.
2.    The Foundation will never sell or trade donor information.
3.    The Foundation will always honor a donor's request to remain anonymous.
4.    All  donors  will  be  contacted  at  times  through  mail,  email,  and  phone  solicitations  regarding upcoming events and opportunities unless the donor has specifically opted out of communications.
5.    Donors can opt out of mail, email, or phone solicitations by emailing info@clubfootresearch.org.
6.    The Foundation will always be clear in who we are, what we do, and how money is being used.
7.    We will treat each third-party  fundraiser as a relationship and the financial arrangement will be transparent.
8.    The Foundation will never under any circumstance put pressure on a donor to make a gift. If you choose to cease giving, we will respect your decision always. 
9.    The Foundation  promises to be sensitive in all giving situations as we are aware some donations are made through memorials, estate planning, and other difficult situations. 
10.  The  Foundation  will  do  all  we  can  to  ensure  that  our  fundraisers,  volunteers,  and  third-party agencies working with us comply with all fundraising regulations. 
11.  If a donor is unhappy with anything we have done, you can contact us to make us aware of a concern. If we make a mistake, we will apologize and do everything in our power to make the situation right.  However,  if  we  cannot  resolve  the  situation,  we  accept  the  authority  of  the fundraising regulator to make a final adjudication.

Policy Review and Amendments 
This policy will be reviewed annually, by the end of the first quarter (Q1), to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of The Society and its community.
