DONATIONS TO THE CHARITY:
100% of all donations made to this sub-campaign go to Charities Aid Foundation America ("CAF America"),
which is a globally recognized United States 501(c)(3) public charity (Federal Tax ID # 43-1634280). Upon
recommendation by Ascend and after CAF America completes their due diligence and grant approval process,
CAF America distributes the donations, minus the expenses involved in operating the sub-campaign, as a
grant to the charity identified in this sub-campaign (the "Charity Beneficiary"). Ascend does the legwork
on the sub-campaign so the CAF America and the Charity Beneficiary can focus on doing what they do best -
furthering their charitable missions.
Each Charity Beneficiary is vetted by CAF America through an eligibility process. As long as the Charity Beneficiary meets CAF America's stringent due diligence criteria, they can be recommended by Ascend to receive a grant from CAF America from the donations of this sub-campaign. If the Charity Beneficiary is no longer eligible (per CAF America's eligibility criteria or policies and/or applicable laws) or if CAF America's Board of Directors reject the grant, then CAF America may (i) withhold distribution of the donations until the Charity Beneficiary is eligible or (ii) reassign the donations to another nonprofit or charity that supports a similar cause. If CAF America reassigns the donations to an alternate organization, the sub-campaign page will be updated to identify what entity(ies) received the grant(s).
Depending on the type of sub-campaign, the Charity Beneficiary may receive anywhere from 15%-80% of the total donations via a grant from CAF America as long as they continue to be eligible to receive a grant. For this campaign, your donation is broken down as follows:
- CAF America retains a small percentage of the total donations (3%) to cover its administrative costs.
- Ascend takes a fee of 15% of total donations to cover its costs of arranging the sub-campaign and providing the technology and expertise behind executing and operating sub-campaigns. The fee will vary depending on Ascend's role in executing the sub-campaign:
- Other costs associated with arranging and operating the sub-campaign are payment processing fees.
- The balance will be granted to the Charity by CAF America.
Ascend sends 100% of donations from this sub-campaign to CAF America within 2 business days of Ascend's receipt of the donation. After the sub-campaign is completed, CAF will usually distribute the donations 2 to 3 weeks after the conclusion of the sub-campaign, subject to their approval process. CAF America retains exclusive control over all donations raised in this sub-campaign.
