The Platform and Services provide users with the ability to make a donation, and to request that the donation gets disbursed to a nonprofit selected from an aggregated list. Sometimes, we may also feature, or otherwise spotlight a nonprofit apart from the aggregated list (e.g. display the logo or provide additional information about that nonprofit) ( “Feature” ). You acknowledge and agree that Featuring a nonprofit on the Platform or Services does not constitute a solicitation of donations, and that Give Lively does not engage in any solicitation activities on behalf of any of the organizations that may be listed or Featured on the Platform.
Any lists or search results for nonprofits that are displayed on the Platform have been compiled by GuideStar – a third party vendor – are provided as a convenience to you, and are not intended to constitute advice, endorsement or recommendations of any kind. The list or search results may be updated or amended at anytime. Unless otherwise expressly indicated, Give Lively does not endorse and has no affiliation with any of the organizations listed on the Platform. Similarly, any information that we may provide to you related to what nonprofits your “Facebook friends” support or “like,” is not intended to and does not constitute advice, endorsement or recommendation by Give Lively of any organization included in the Platform.
Furthermore, while we agree to use reasonable efforts in providing any information related to such organizations, we make no warranty about the accuracy, completeness, or adequacy of the information. Give Lively has not independently verified any of the information provided by GuideStar or any other source we may use to provide information, and the sole and complete responsibility to assess, review and verify the suitability of any nonprofits you want to support through your donation through the Platform and Services rests entirely with you. It is your sole responsibility to review and research the nonprofits listed on the Platform and determine which, if any, you would like to request that a donation gets directed to.
When a user selects a nonprofit that they would like to support, their donation is distributed in one of the following ways.
(a) Directly to a Nonprofit
Nonprofits that create a Stripe, Paypal, and/or Plaid account of their own, and link that account with ours (“Connected Account”) receive donations directly. When a donation is made through the Platform, it is directed to the Nonprofit’s Stripe account. Therefore, the tax receipt Give Lively sends a donor will represent a direct donation to the selected nonprofit. Once the funds have been transferred to the Connected Account's bank, Give Lively is no longer in control of the funds.
Stripe terms can be found on https://stripe.com/us/legal. Paypal terms can be found on https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/legalhub-full. Plaid terms can be found on https://plaid.com/legal/. Nonprofits that do not have Connected Accounts will continue to receive funds via check from Give Lively LLC, as outlined below.
(b) Through the Give Lively Foundation to a Nonprofit:
The Give Lively Foundation is a charitable fund organized as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization (EIN: 81-0693451). To comply with federal tax laws and Internal Revenue Service regulations, the Give Lively Foundation retains legal control over any charitable contributions it receives, and also retains the authority and discretion to re-grant the funds to other nonprofits as it sees fit. Although your donation is first collected and processed by this charitable fund, a donor's credit card or bank statement will list "Give Lively" as the "merchant of record" and not the nonprofit that you have designated to receive the donation.
In addition to the requirement that the nonprofit selected by you meets certain criteria, as further described below, before a disbursement is made to a particular nonprofit, a minimum of $50 is required to be collected on behalf of such nonprofit ( “Minimum Disbursement” ). In instances in which the Minimum Disbursement amount is not met, donations are generally held and disbursed as follows: (1) in cases in which the aggregate donation amount(s) received from all donors for a particular nonprofit is equal to, or greater than $50, disbursements to the designated nonprofits are made within thirty days from the last day of the previous calendar month in which the Minimum Disbursement amount was met; or (2) in instances in which the aggregate amount(s) received from all donors for a particular nonprofit is less than $50, then, at Give Lively’s sole discretion, either: (i) a disbursement will be made to the selected nonprofit within one year from the last day of the previous calendar month in which the first donation for such nonprofit was received; or (ii) a disbursement will be made to an alternative nonprofit within one year from the last day of the previous calendar month in which the first donation for such a particular charity was received. Please note that the foregoing information applies only to nonprofits who have not subscribed to Give Lively with Connected Accounts. Connected Account holders, as described above, are not subject to the Minimum Disbursement and receive funds directly.
Give Lively provides its text-to-donate service to make it incredibly easy to use your phone to make a donation. Simply text a nonprofit's designated code to 44-321 and receive a link that allows you to complete your donation in just a few taps.
Further information regarding the Text-To-Donate service can be found at https://www.givelively.org/text-to-donate or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To opt-out from the Text-To-Donate services, you can text STOP. Text HELP for help. Message & data rates may apply. Up to 4 messages per request.
You acknowledge and agree that, if Give Lively determines in its discretion, that it would be inappropriate or improper to disburse the funds designated for a particular nonprofit, your donation may be redirected to another nonprofit, or returned to you. In such cases, without requiring any approval from you, your funds may be withheld, and you may be asked to select an alternate nonprofit to receive the donation.
By way of example and not limitation, such determination may be made for one or more of the following reasons: the charity (i) is no longer accepting donations, recognized as a public charity, in good standing with state or federal regulators, a participating nonprofit in the Platform, (ii) does not or will not accept contributions from the Platform, (iii) does not satisfy the then current criteria, including without limitation the Value Statements described in Section 12 herein, (iv) has opted not to receive contributions made through the Platform, or (v) returns your contribution.
We currently accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club and ACH/Bank Accounts. Give Lively uses third party payment platforms, such as Stripe, Inc. ( “Stripe” ), Paypal, Inc. ( “Paypal” ), and Plaid, Inc. ( “Plaid” , and together with Stripe and Paypal, the “Payment Processors” ) to process credit and debit card transactions. Although the collection of your credit card or bank account information takes place on our Platform, after your payment information is entered, it is securely transmitted to the chosen Payment Processors, which process all credit card and debit card donation/payment transactions and manage the routing of applicable customer information through the processing networks.
You acknowledge and agree that, for all donations/payment transactions, you will only use a valid credit or debit card or other payment method, and that for all such payment methods you are the authorized account holder. Additionally, you also acknowledge and understand that like any tax-deductible charitable donation, your donation may not be cancelled or returned once it has been processed, all donations/payment transactions are final and non-refundable as soon as a donation is processed via the Platform. If you have any questions regarding any payment transaction, please contact us by email at email@example.com.
When a donation is made, the Payment Processor may collect a variable processing fee depending on the payment method you select. Each Payment Processor may offer discounted transaction rates for 501(c)(3) organizations. The application process and eligibility requirements for the above mentioned discounted fee programs can be checked by contacting the Payment Processors via their respective websites.
Please note that all donations made through the Platform or Services are granted to nonprofits as unrestricted grants. Neither Give Lively, the Give Lively Foundation, or any of their officers, directors, members, affiliates, licensees, and service providers monitors or controls any of the nonprofit’s activities, and neither shall be responsible, in any manner or form, for the use or non-use of any funds granted through the Platform or Services to such nonprofits.

Furthermore, you agree that you will not use the Platform or Services to: (i) discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in any of your activities, programs, or operations.

You acknowledge and agree that if Give Lively believes (in its discretion) that any donation has been made to an organization that engages in or in any way promotes such activities, or other activities that Give Lively in its discretion deems objectionable, we may block the transaction and refund the respective amounts.
