Terms and Conditions
By electing to give a donation in response to a Mobile Giving Foundation Canada campaign, you agree to be bound by a set of terms and conditions. If you do not agree to be bound or cannot comply with the following terms and conditions, do not continue the donation.
Terms of your gift:
Thank you for contributing to a Mobile Giving Foundation Canada campaign. Your donation is to the Mobile Giving Foundation Canada (MGFC), a registered charity, which re-grants your donation to the charity(ies) you designated through your text message donation. Your donation will appear as Mobile Giving Foundation Canada or MGFC on your wireless statement.
Please consult your tax or financial advisor for specific questions about your gift. All MGFC approved organizations are registered charities and donations should be tax deductible. Please print a donation receipt at Tax Receipt. Your donation is immediate and irrevocable. Accordingly, the MGFC cannot refund or cancel your donation. Please check with your wireless operator for operator specific refund policies.
MGFC collects donations paid by you from your wireless operator. In some instances, your donation will be deducted from your pre-paid balance with your wireless operator. The wireless operators remit 100% of your donation to MGFC. Within 30 days of the MGFC’s receipt of collected donations from the wireless operator, MGFC grants 100% of the donation to the designated registered charity.
$5 Donations – A donation of $5.00 will be added to your mobile phone bill. You may donate the $5.00 amount up to 6 (six) times per monthly billing cycle. All charges are billed by and payable to your wireless operator.
$10 Donations – A donation of $10.00 will be added to your mobile phone bill. You may donate the $10.00 amount up to 3 (three) times per monthly billing cycle. All charges are billed by and payable to your wireless operator.
$20 Donations – A donation of $20.00 will be added to your mobile phone bill. You may donate the $20.00 amount up to 1 (one) time per monthly billing cycle. All charges are billed by and payable to your wireless operator.
$25 Donations – A donation of $25.00 will be added to your mobile phone bill. You may donate the $25.00 amount up to 1 (one) time per monthly billing cycle. All charges are billed by and payable to your wireless operator.
Recurring Monthly Donations – As a follow up to an initial text message donation, MGFC has enabled Registered Charities to send the donor an additional message asking if they would like the option to donate every month as a part of a recurring monthly donation program. In order to participate, you must reply to the text message with the keyword YES to accept. By accepting, you will receive a monthly reminder message in advance of every monthly donation to provide notice of the date that the next donation will be charged to your wireless bill, or be deducted from your prepaid balance. On the date noted within the reminder message, you will receive a confirmation text message indicating that the donation has been charged. At any point in time, you have the option to unsubscribe from this program by sending the keyword STOP to the applicable short code number from which the messages are delivered. By sending the keyword STOP, you are preventing any further messaging to your wireless device, as well as any future donation charges to your account (or deductions from your prepaid balance). All charges are billed by and payable to your wireless operator.
Help, Cancellation and Additional Information:
• If you would like to receive help, please send “HELP” to the applicable short code (20222).
• If you would like to Opt-Out, please send STOP to the applicable short code (20222).
