Answering a Concern August 9, 2008

There has been a concern raised over charities who would sign on with us but only if we either only allowed Christian charities or didn’t allow religious charities. I would like to address this concern.

Unlike other fund raising and distributing charities like the United Way, we will have no say in where you send your money. You are not giving it to us and we are not giving it to the charity. You are giving directly. We are serving as a means to connect donors and volunteers to worthy charities and projects and we take none of your money.

This means that if you use our services to donate to your local church then all of that money will go to that church. By the same token if you chose to give to a non-religious charity we will take none of that money either. Every penny goes to the organization or project you want it to go to.

We are also going to include customizable filters on your profile. If you only want to see Florida based Methodist charities engaged in mission work in Africa then you can set it that way. If you only want to see secular charities based in Texas who do environmental work then you can have it that way to.

You will have total control over your money or other donations.

We will not discriminate against any charity provided it follows some simple rules:

1) The charity cannot promote violence to advance its mission.

2) The charity cannot be under investigation for funding terrorism.

3) Nothing advancing a specifically political agenda.
