FuneralFundMe, LLC (FuneralFundMe, LLC” “we,” “us,” “our”) provides its crowdfunding services through the website located at funeralfundme.com (the “Site”). We reserve the right to alter these “Terms of Service” at any time. If we choose to alter the Terms of Service we will post the changes and revision date at the top of this page. Under certain circumstances we may also notify you of these changes via email or any other reasonable means. Any changes made to these Site terms will take effect no less than fourteen (14) days from the time they are posted. It is the responsibility of the Site user to check if The Terms have changed.
Failure to abide by these Terms of Service may result in a permanent suspension or termination of your account. In the event of suspension or termination of an account any funeral funds will end immediately and be removed from the site.
FuneralFundMe offers “Services” to its users which may include “Campaign Creators/Beneficiaries”, “Donors”, “Funeral Service Providers”, and any other user (registered or non-registered) of the Site. The Services are designed to allow a Campaign Creator/Beneficiary to create a “Fundraiser or Campaign” to accept monetary donations from “Donors”. All campaigns are reviewed by the FuneralFundMe team to make sure they align with our community standards. This helps us eliminate fraudulent campaigns and uphold the level of dignity and respect each cause deserves. Donations made to a Campaign will be deposited directly into the beneficiary’s bank account or a mailed check will be issued upon request. Campaign funds can only be withdrawn once and the campaign must be completed. There are no fees to create an account or to create a campaign, however there is a 5% platform fee applied to each Donation which will be applied at the time it is received. There is also a 2.9% + .30 per transaction credit card processing fee for every donation processed through our secure credit card processor. Please see the Fees section for more details.
FuneralFundMe campaigns are not charities and your donations usually do not fall into the category of “tax-deductible charitable contributions”. Under the same circumstances, FuneralFundMe campaign donations are considered “gifts” which typically do not require you to pay taxes on either. We recommend speaking with a knowledgeable tax professional for more information on this topic. By accepting these terms of service, you acknowledge that donations made on FuneralFundMe are not deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions.
