MACC – DONOR AND SUBSCRIBER TERMS
Mother and Child Charity is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are deductible for Federal Income Tax purposes.
Acceptance of any contribution, gift or grant is at the discretion of the Mother and Child Charity (MACC). Mother and Child Charity will not accept any gift unless it can be used or expended consistently with the purpose and mission of Mother and Child Charity. No irrevocable gift, whether outright or life-income in character, will be accepted if, under any reasonable set of circumstances, the gift would jeopardize the donor’s financial security. Mother and Child Charity will refrain from providing advice about the tax or other treatment of gifts and will encourage donors to seek guidance from their own professional advisers to assist them in the process of making their donation. Mother and Child Charity will accept donations of cash or publicly traded securities. Gifts of in-kind services will be accepted at the discretion of the Mother and Child Charity. Certain other gifts, real property, personal property, in-kind gifts, non-liquid securities, and contributions whose sources are not transparent or whose use is restricted in some manner, must be reviewed prior to acceptance due to the special obligations raised or liabilities they may pose for Mother and Child Charity. Mother and Child Charity will provide acknowledgments to donors meeting tax requirements for property received by the charity as a gift. However, except for gifts of cash and publicly traded securities, no value shall be ascribed to any receipt or other forms of substantiation of a gift received by Mother and Child Charity. Mother and Child Charity will respect the intent of the donor relating to gifts for restricted purposes and those relating to the desire to remain anonymous. With respect to anonymous gifts, the Mother and Child Charity will restrict information about the donor to only those staff members with a need to know.
Mother and Child Charity will not compensate, whether through commissions, finders’ fees, or other means, any third party for directing a gift or a donor to Mother and Child Charity.
