Direct Donations

Thanks for being an awesome person considering a cash donation to your favorite cause.

For Donors who want to help a cause, on their storefront, you'll see a big green button near the right hand side called √Donate now. We purposefully created a really simple system so you can spend the rest of your day doing other good things. Two pages in total - page one asks for your donation amount and if you'd like to leave your cause some words of encouragement. In the email we send them, we'll include your First name, email address, and your personal message. Should you wish to sprinkle some goodness on them without any direct ties, no worries. We have you covered if you check the box asking us to keep your donation anonymous. Please also note that your donation is not refundable. All donations are final.

The part where we need you to do your own investigation comes into play when discussing taxes and donations. We’re not tax attorneys or accountants.  So if you plan to use your donation for tax purposes, make sure you consult with an expert.  Your donations may or may not be deductible.

For folks who are using their KarmaLaunch storefront to solicit cash donations, AWESOME! Now you no longer have to split your fundraising efforts. Launch products to raise cash, or just send folks directly to your store. Our first recommendation is to review our terms since they were updated as of 11/16 to include all sorts of new donation guidance. You'll be the "Recipient" in the doc. We have lots of guidance in there to cover subject matter that isn't appropriate to use on KarmaLaunch, and some other important guidelines as well. The last thing we'd want to do is keep you from your money just because you're fundraising for something we don't allow. Other top tips: Please do not spam your donors. If they chose not to remain anonymous, you'll have their email and first name. We ask that you treat them with respect. The second tip is about your money. You'll receive a notification immediately, but as of the writing of this article, it won't be available to you before a period of 72 hours. We hold on to it for that length of time so it gives our credit card processors time to run their fraud check. We know you'd prefer to make sure the money coming into your account is from a truthful source.

When you're ready to start receiving donations, head to your account and then storefront. Flip the switch to on, and you're all set!

That's about it. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
