Pricing and Fees

It is free to register and create your online fundraising or charity campaign in OneworldGiving. OneworldGiving is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Therefore, all your donations made to campaigns in OneworldGiving are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

A platform fee is not required in OneworldGiving. However, donors are encouraged to allocate 5% of their donation to support and help OneworldGiving continue its service. Donors can remove or change this amount at the time of contribution. A standard payment processing fee of 2.2% plus $0.30 (through PayPal), or 2.9% plus $0.30 (through Stripe) per donation will also be charged by the payment companies. For some special campaigns, for a big amount of donation (over $500), to avoid the processing fee from payment companies, you may also contribute by manual payments (bank transfer, cash or cheque). Your donations by manual payments will also be shown under the case you support. Under present policy, the fees will be added to donor's contribution, so the campaign can get the full amount. Campaigners are never charged any fees.

OneworldGiving discloses the organization’s financial statements and balance every year. All OneworldGiving funds can only be used to develop this non-profit charitable organization, hire necessary employees, or go directly to charity itself. We will disclose how every dollar is spent.

Receiving Donations from a Campaign:

OneworldGiving will send the collected donations to the campaign creator once the campaign is due. Or, the campaign creator can choose any date to close the campaign and contact OneworldGiving (through our "Contact" link) for money distribution. Please make sure you upload the accurate and up-to-date address (if needed), and PayPal or bank account information for receiving payments in your OneworldGiving account “Settings” or campaign “Files” link, which is located above the picture or video. Only you and OneworldGiving can view these confidential information/files. OneworldGiving can only send the money to you via PayPal (no charge from our side), bank account transfer (no charge from our side), or by a Check ($2 fee will be deducted).

Please acknowledge that after your campaign is closed, it typically takes about 6-7 business days for the money entering OneworldGiving account from the campaign and then transferred from OneworldGiving account to yours. OneworldGiving expressly disclaims any and all responsibility for any delay or inability due to third-party (payment processing partners, specifically PayPal and Stripe). Therefore, OneworldGiving does not guarantee that payments will be available to you for use immediately or within any specific time frame.

General Terms

The Terms of Service may be updated by OneworldGiving from time to time. If we make a material change to this Agreement we may post advance notice on the site. Your continued use of our services after any change means that you agree with, and consent to be bound by, the new Terms of Service. Otherwise, you will need to close your account and/or stop using the services.

OneworldGiving reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, our service with or without notice. You agree that OneworldGiving shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of OneworldGiving platform.

六、相关费用

        在“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)里任何注册和创建筹款项目活动都是免费的。对项目受益人也没有任何别的费用,您将得到项目的所有善款。对于捐助者,因为“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)是美国注册501(c)(3) 慈善机构,您在“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)平台里的捐款数目是可以按照相关税务法报免税的。

        “四海一家”(OneworldGiving)并不要求基本平台费。但因为“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)并没有任何资金赞助,平台欢迎捐助人在基于自愿的基础上设置一小数额用于帮助我们平台继续当前的服务。您可以在每次捐款时选择支持平台这部分的数目(相当于您捐款的1%,2.5%,5%,最高7.5%),或者选择本次不赞助平台(0%)。如果捐款人使用PayPal或Stripe支付,支付公司会自动扣除约3%的手续费(PayPal将从每一笔捐款扣除2.2%另加¥0.30;Stripe将从每一笔捐款扣除2.9%另加¥0.30)。在当前的平台政策下,为了让被帮助的项目能得到全额善款,费用将添加到捐助者的捐款中。对于一些特殊慈善项目,如果您的捐赠数目比较大(500美元以上),为了免除来自信用卡公司大约3%的手续费,您也可以直接和“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)联系,使用银行转账,现金或支票等“手工付款”。手工捐款的数目仍会显示在您所帮助的项目之下。

        “四海一家”(OneworldGiving)会定期(至少一年一次)在平台里显示财务收支情况。“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)是非盈利慈善机构,其资金除维护平台运转和聘请必须的工作人员以提高这个慈善机构的效率之外,剩余部分将最终全部用于本平台或其它相关慈善捐款。我们将清楚地显示一切账目。

七、收取捐款

        “四海一家”(OneworldGiving)将在项目到期或结束时一次性将捐款转给项目发起人或组织。项目创建者可以选择任何时间结束项目,通过平台“联系”链接通知“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)启动转账。项目发起人或组织务请在您“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)账户的“设置”中或者项目“存档文件”里提供您准确的邮信地址(如果需要),PayPal账户或银行转账账号信息。只有“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)和您本人能看到您账户“设置”中或项目“存档文件”里的信息。“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)希望能通过PayPal或银行转账将项目所得捐款转给发起人或组织。使用这两种转账方式,“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)一方不收取任何费用。“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)也可以将捐款以支票的形式寄给项目发起人或组织,但需要扣除2美元手续费。

        请项目人或组织注意在正常情况下,项目结束后所有捐款进到“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)账户,再由“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)转到您的账户一般需要6到7个工作日。此外,“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)不为第三方(支付公司)工作延缓带来的可能结果承担任何责任。 因此,尽管我们预期一般情况下项目发起人或组织能在项目结束后两周时间之内收到所有捐款,“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)不能保证没有延迟的时候。

八、一般规章

        “四海一家”(OneworldGiving)根据需要可能会定期更新其《平台规章》。如果我们的《平台规章》有重大变化,我们会在平台上张贴通知。用户继续使用“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)的平台服务就意味着您同意并遵守我们新的《平台规章》。否则,您必须关闭您“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)的账户,并停止使用我们的平台服务。

        在我们认为需要和合理的时候,“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)拥有在事先通知或不通知的情况下,更改,暂时或永久性地停止我们平台服务的权利。您理解并同意“四海一家”(OneworldGiving)不对这一行动给您或任何第三方可能带来的任何结果负责任。
