At the Funding Life Corporation we take your privacy and personal information protection very seriously.

We want you to be comfortable and clearly understand exactly how this information is being used (not shared).

Responsibility

Costs, Overhead and Administrative Expenses

While operation overhead and corporate expenses are a reality, at The Funding Life Corporation our goal is to maximize the effectiveness of every donation dollar that we coordinate. Most traditional charities have overhead and operational costs that consume upwards of 60% (often higher) of every donation dollar raised. The operational strategies that we employ at Funding Life allow us to reduce this level to below 25%.

We work diligently to control our expense and minimize our overhead and operational costs.

Transparency

All of our fundraising and program campaigns is funded within 30 days of receipt of funds. While most crowd funding operations collect and then hold the raised campaign funds for months at a time, not releasing them to the campaign until the identified completion date (which in effect gives the crowd funding company a 0% loan for the duration of the campaign), at The Funding Life Corporation when a donation is made it is immediately transmitted to the accounts of the campaign fund.

There are no delays, no games.

Every donation is acknowledge by an electronic receipt which is formatted in such a way that it can be used at tax time to identify and verify your charitable contribution. Additionally, if additional electronic copies or paper copies of any donation transaction are required, our support team will gladly provide them.

At The Funding Life Corporation we follow a strict audit process for all campaigns to ensure that all promised funds were received from the donor, dispersed to the charity, and properly documented for IRS purposes.
