ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS OF AGREEMENT
FOR MAKING DONATIONSAdoptionBridge is sponsored by the 501c3 organization Every Child Has A Name. 100% of the money donated to families goes directly to help pay adoption fees. The IRS requires that the board of directors makes an independent decision to award grants, but AdoptionBridge is committed to offering grants to adoptive families that meet or exceed the amount of money raised in their honor. Gifts are tax-deductible. Donors should have the understanding that donations are "without strings attached." donations are not tax-deductible if they are given to a specific individual. Donations to AdoptionBridge are subject to a 3% credit card processing fee. AdoptionBridge is a pass-through organization and retains no funds, unless specifically indicated by the donor. Donors may select to make an additional contribution to support AdoptionBridge. If a family is unable to complete the intended adoption, funds will be distributed to another adoptive family at the discretion of Every Child Has a Name. There are no refunds given to the adoptive family, since gifts are tax-deductible and must be used for a charitable purpose. All funds due to the agency for the incomplete adoption will be paid, and the remainder awarded to another adoptive family. This way, all funds are used for adoption. It is possible you may pay your fees to your adoption agency and then raise funds on AdoptionBridge that exceed your total amount due to the agency. In this case, ask your adoption agency for a refund of the fees you paid. AdoptionBridge cannot give a refund, but your agency should only collect the total amount due, and should refund excess money, provided that excess amount was actually paid by you.
