Acceptance of any contribution, gift or grant is at the discretion of the 5Pillars.
5Pillars will not accept any gift unless it can be used or expended consistently with the purpose and mission of the 5Pillars.
No irrevocable gift, whether outright or life-income in character, will be accepted if under any reasonable set of circumstances the gift would jeopardise the supporter’s financial security.
5Pillars will refrain from providing advice about the tax or other treatment of gifts and will encourage supporters to seek guidance from their own professional advisers to assist them in the process of making their commitment.
Certain other gifts, real property, personal property, in-kind gifts, non-liquid securities, and contributions whose sources are not transparent or whose use is restricted in some manner, must be reviewed prior to acceptance due to the special obligations raised or liabilities they may pose for 5Pillars.
5Pillars will provide acknowledgments to supporters meeting tax requirements for property received by the charity as a gift. However, except for gifts of cash and publicly traded securities, no value shall be ascribed to any receipt or other form of substantiation of a gift received by 5Pillars.
5Pillars will not compensate, whether through commissions, finders' fees, or other means, any third party for directing a gift or a supporter to 5Pillars.
5Pillars Media raises funds online for a variety of community projects. This contribution/Refund Policy applies to anyone who makes an online contribution to 5Pillars Media. As your contribution is being made online without our assistance or involvement we ask that you complete your details and the amount of your contribution carefully as it involves a substantial amount of administrative time to deal with and rectify any errors. In summary:
- There is no minimum contribution.
- Contributions are generally non-refundable.
- All credit card transactions will be processed in Pound Sterling (GBP).
Errors in Amount Pledged
Should an error be made in the amount of any contribution, the contributor has 30 days in which to notify 5Pillars Media of the error. All requests for refunds must be made in writing by email to the Finance Manager at refund (at) training.5Pillars Media.org. The request should have the details of the initial contribution including the date, amount, name of the contributor and the nature of the error.
Change of Heart on Contribution
Refunds of the amount pledged cannot be made simply because you have changed your mind. It is for this reason that we ask that you make your choice to contribute carefully. 5Pillars Media is under no obligation to give a refund but will ensure that any genuine errors (such as to the amount contributed) are rectified.
