Giver Terms of Use


Terms of Service

When you give money through forafriend.com you are agreeing to these terms and conditions. 

Definitions

‘forafriend’, ‘forafriend.com’, ‘us’, and ‘we’ refer to Forafriend, Inc. ‘Our website’, ‘the website’, and ‘website’ refer to the content/services on forafriend.com. ‘Missionary’ refers to someone who has a profile on forafriend.com. 'Gift' refers to a payment to forafriend, associated with an intended missionary recipient, and possibly associated with an intended use, and a personal message.

Terms of Your Gift:

Any money you give on forafriend.com is a gift to ForAFriend, Inc. Forafriend has full legal control over all money given through forafriend. 100% of your gift will go toward what we deem as ‘relational ministry’, unless you’ve specified that it should go to our organization to cover our costs.

When you give you will be sent a receipt via email to the email address you give us. This will contain details about your gift and a transaction number which you should reference if you have any questions about your order. You may also receive an email from the missionary when they use your gift.

When you give, the missionary is informed immediately via email of the gift amount, designation, sender (unless you elected to remain anonymous), and your personal message. You can expect your donation to appear as FORAFRIEND.COM on your credit card or bank statement soon after your submission of the gift.

Designation/Payment of Funds:

We do our best to make sure that the money you give goes exactly where you have specified. In extenuating circumstances, such the missionary dying, or the missionary failing to comply with their terms of service, your money may not make it to that missionary. In general, if we discover that this is the case before we have sent your donation to that person, we will refund your card. Otherwise, we will send the funds to another missionary. When missionaries are provided a profile on forafriend.com they agree to use the funds that we give them for the items for which they are designated as much as possible. There are times when this will not be possible because of a change in their situation, a flood of donations for a certain item, or other circumstances. In those cases the missionary agrees to use the funds for other relational ministry expenses or re-gift on forafriend.com. We also suggest the missionary let givers know if they are using it for something different than it was intended for. We do our best to screen and monitor missionaries with profiles, but forafriend will not be held liable for unauthorized or unacceptable use of our website. If you have specified that you would like to “cover your fees”, we (forafriend) will keep the amount specified in your order.

The funds are normally transferred to the missionary’s bank account within 30 days of your transaction. We are not held liable if it takes longer than 30 days, or if the money is not sent to the missionary for any reason. In all cases, we have full control over what is done with your donation, and we are not .
