Fundmycharitywork does not collect, store or otherwise maintain any credit card information from individuals who make a donation through the website. Donations, including information associated with your credit card, are processed by our partners, including PayPal and Stripe.
Both parties use industry-leading Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to keep your personal information as secure as possible.
Fundmycharitywork is a crowd-funding platform for people and organizations to raise support for charitable causes. Fundmycharitywork’s core principles are that people have unprecedented power to use the power of networks to leverage their personal capacity and that raising money for charity and giving back should be fun. The website is intended to provide this great experience without requiring you to submit any more personal information than is reasonably necessary to use the Site effectively.
We collect the following categories of information from you:

We may receive and store any information you enter on the website or provide to us in any other way that would allow us to identify you personally or contact you. Examples of information we may collect from you include:

Charities, Event Organizers, Event Partners, Sweepstakes Partners & Gift Registry Partners
When you make a donation or sign up to, volunteer, fundraise, enter a sweepstakes, or register for an event for a Charity or for an organization or event associated with fundraising (e.g., a marathon, walkathon, concert or similar), Fundmycharitywork shares with the Fundraiser, Charity, Event Organizer, Sweepstakes Partners and Event Partners your name, address, email address, donation amount, date of transaction, transaction identification number and may also include the name of the project, and event associated with the donation. This information may be used by the Charity to facilitate your participation in an event, to accept and process your donation, or to contact you as otherwise permitted by law. If you wish to stop receiving communications from a Charity, Event Organizer, Sweepstakes Partners, or Event Partner, please contact the Charity or Event Organizer or Event Partner directly.
Also, if you establish a donation registry, Fundmycharitywork shares with any gift registry partners all of the details related to the donation registry sufficient to allow users of the gift registry partner to search for the donation registry, which will include your full name and email address, any co-registrant’s full name and email address, event date, event State/Provinces, event type, unique registry ID and the applicable Charities. Also, if you make a donation to a Fundmycharitywork’s donation registry, Fundmycharitywork shares with any gift registry partners (e.g. The Knot, The Bump) all of the details related to the donation including your full name, email and mailing address, date of donation and amount of donation. Fundmycharitywork will continuously provide this information to its gift registry partners to allow the gift registry partners to accurately update their gift registries. If you wish to stop receiving communications from a gift registry partner, please contact the gift registry partner directly.
Also, if you enter a sweepstakes on Fundmycharitywork, you agree that we may share your name, address, email address, donation amount, date of transaction, transaction identification number and may also include the name of the project, and event associated with the donation with the charity we designate as the benefiting charity for such sweepstakes and with any entity providing prizes for that sweepstakes, who may use your information for marketing purposes to the full extent permitted by law. If you consent, or as otherwise permitted by law, we may also use the information that you provide to us to communicate with you about our current activities, future activities, and sweepstakes or to notify you about any changes to our services. If you decide that you would no longer like to receive such messages you can opt-out from receiving such emails from Fundmycharitywork.
