Terms and Conditions
CharityChoice Gift Cards are recipient-designated charity gifts: a project of Special Kids
Fund (501c3, EIN 58-2550249). Only the gift-recipient is entitled to designate the charity,
which he/she may do at any time. If a card is attained by redeeming points earned in loyalty/incentive programs in order to use to donate to a charity,
and not to be given as a gift; then the card-holder may redeem the card. Cards never lose value,
nor expire. We always retain a reserve for honoring unredeemed cards. Purchases of gift cards
are charity donations, that are 100% tax deductible at the time of purchase; and, as such,
FEES: The funds are allocated from Special Kids Fund, usually quarterly (4 - 6 weeks following the ending), to the recipient's
designated charity; deducting $0.50 per card [for cards $2 and up]+ 5% administrative fee
and 3% credit card processing (used towards management of this nonprofit fundraising program,
and towards our mission to benefit special needs children).
Note: Occasionally, a larger than 5% administrative fee may be required; depending upon how
the card is purchased and the costs involved, e.g., third-party marketing.
REWARDS PROGRAMS: 10% total fee deducted for cards ordered through many rewards programs (includes
all fees, marketing and program expenses).
Please note that unlike for-profit websites and charity portals, CharityChoice is run by a
charitable organization with a distinct cause and mission, providing for special needs children.
So using our service is worthwhile all around!
