Disaster Relief Fundraising:
As the need arises, HelpMeDonate.org will raise money for disaster relief efforts, as it has done since 2001.  When fundraising for Disaster Relief efforts, Payouts to Organizations, Churches, or Municipalities may be processed differently than donations for HMD Fundraisers and Charities, via our site.  Typically, funds will be paid out at or around .91 of every dollar.  However, HMD reserves the right to reimburse costs of acquisition and processing costs, before calculating payouts.  A general formula for this payout would be NET DONATION=Gross Donation - cost to acquire - cost to process the donation.   Disaster Relief donations to a specific cause will be used for that cause to the best of our ability.  Should funds be received once a campaign ends or funds for that cause are no longer needed or accepted, donation funds may be held for another cause or program, where those funds may be necessary.  HelpMeDonate.org makes every effort to use donated funds as promoted.  In certain cases, funds provided to charitable organizations may be reduced by expenses incurred in the process of collecting those donations.  Even in cases where HelpMeDonate.org states that 100% of funds are to be provided, this may or not be possible due to costs incurred.  HelpMeDonate.org reserves the right to utilize Disaster Relief funds donated to specific fundraising efforts or charitable organizations, to be used for specific campaigns or uses, subject to the sole discretion of HelpMeDonate.org.
