Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions
The Columbus Foundation (TCF) has partnered with CharityChoice, a program of Special Kids Fund, Inc. (SKF) dba Charity Gift Certificates, to offer a Charitable Gift Card program administered by SKF through an Internet-based platform (the Website).
Charitable Gift Card purchases are 100 percent tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law at the time of purchase. Purchasers will receive an e-mail confirmation verifying each purchase and acknowledging the date and amount of the donation to Special Kids Fund, Inc. dba Charity Gift Certificates (EIN# 58-2550249) for tax purposes. SKF has waived all administrative and credit card fees so 100 percent of donations go directly to the nonprofit the gift recipient selects. There is a minimal shipping and handling fee charged for physical card purchases. Physical cards ordered by credit card are shipped within one business day of purchase; expedited delivery options are available. Printable electronic cards ordered by credit card are sent to the gift recipient via e-mail immediately or on the scheduled date. Physical and printable electronic cards ordered through Donor Advised Fund grants may take up to three weeks to receive.
Charitable Gift Card recipients may designate the recipient nonprofit organization, but are not eligible to claim a tax deduction. Recipients may select one organization from The Giving Store to redeem their gift card and are unable to divide this amount across multiple nonprofits. Charitable Gift Cards do not expire and may be honored, for gift recipient redemption only, at any time. SKF retains a reserve for honoring unredeemed cards. Charitable Gift Cards are not redeemable for cash or merchandise and may not be returned. Lost or stolen gift cards will not be replaced.
TCF retains the sole right to select organizations for inclusion in the Website. Only organizations with a current published portrait in TCF’s The Giving Store are eligible for Charitable Gift Card redemption. Organizations may participate in the Charitable Gift Card program with no expense. TCF will distribute funds and donor acknowledgement information, unless anonymous, by mail to selected organizations on a minimum of a quarterly basis. Organizations do not need to issue formal substantiation language required by the 1993 Tax Reconciliation Act, as SKF has already provided this.
