17. Fundraising Transparency
This Sweepstakes is part of a fundraising campaign for Vehicle for Good Inc., which is a United States 501(c)(3) public charity (Federal Tax ID # 88-1426784). Vehicle for Good Inc. retains exclusive control over all donations raised in this Sweepstakes.
(a) How it works: Vehicle for Good Inc. works to offer incredible Sweepstakes, like this one. You don’t have to donate to enter, but if you do, 100% of your donation (minus any applicable payment processing fees) goes to Vehicle for Good Inc., who then distributes the donations, minus the Sweepstakes fees and costs, to the nonprofit(s) identified on the sweepstakes page. Our model allows nonprofits that cannot afford to pay for professional marketing or fundraising to spend less time worrying about raising funds and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.
(b) Where your donation goes: Vehicle for Good allocates 10% to cover administrative fees and platform costs, ensuring the smooth operation of our fundraising efforts. Vehicle for Good privately raises funds to help cover internal costs along with expenses such as the platforms used in all sweepstakes. Vehicle for Good uses donations as needed to pay for the Sweepstakes costs, such as Prize costs, payment processing fees, and advertising to awesome people like you. For all Sweepstakes, like this one, 100% of what is left over goes to the nonprofit(s) identified on the sweepstakes page. Our future goal is to raise sufficient funds to eliminate the need for any percentage deductions or utilizing donations for covering the costs and fees associated with the sweepstakes, allowing us to direct 100% of the contributions to the nonprofits we support. Vehicle for Good reserves the right to introduce additional beneficiary nonprofits at any point during the campaign to ensure funds are directed towards the appropriate causes and purposes in the nonprofits we support. (If there are multiple nonprofits involved, the distribution of donations will be proportionate to the total amount raised and the budgetary needs of each nonprofit).
(c) Nonprofit(s) Eligibility: Before every Sweepstakes, Vehicle for Good confirms the nonprofit(s) identified on the sweepstakes page are eligible to be the beneficiary. In the rare case where, after the launch of a Sweepstakes but before distribution of the donations, a Nonprofit(s) fails to maintain eligibility (per Vehicle for Good’s ByLaws, policies, and/or applicable laws), then Vehicle for Good may (i) withhold distribution of the donations until the Nonprofit(s) is eligible or (ii) reassign the donations to another nonprofit that supports a similar cause. If Vehicle for Good reassigns the donations to an alternate organization, the Sweepstakes page will be updated to identify what entity(ies) received the donation(s). We work only with nonprofits that hold a 501(c)(3) status in the United States and can not afford to higher professional marketers or fundraisers.
(d) When will the Designated Nonprofit(s) get the money? Vehicle for Good Inc. will distribute donations after reconciliation of all Sweepstakes costs (usually within 10-60 days following the close of the Sweepstakes).
