Shriver Education for the Arts — Donation Policies

Your generous contribution to Shriver Education for the Arts supports our programs and initiatives. As good stewards of your donations, we follow clear guidelines in processing your gifts.

GIFT POLICY STANDARDS

All donations to Shriver Education for the Arts, or Shriver Education for the Arts, Inc. support our mission of providing differently-abled artists the opportunity to practice and demonstrate their skills through art classes and proper art exhibitions. Additional community awareness projects may be initiated and exhibited.. 

Shriver Education for the Arts manages a number of fundraising initiatives to make every donated dollar go further. We will carefully consider the needs of the organization and will use your gift where we determine it is most needed, so that all donations may directly and indirectly support Shriver Education for the Arts in your area. When processing each gift, we will follow documented Shriver Education for the Arts business rules and agreements, the Donor’s Bill of Rights, and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles standards.

Shriver Education for the Arts will not accept any restrictions on use of donations less than $10,000; however, if you specifically request at the time of donation that funds be distributed to specific program we will honor such request so long as distribution does not conflict with other Inclusion Revolution policies. If Shriver Education for the Arts cannot honor a donor’s designation request for a gift of $10,000 or more, the gift will be applied to the appropriate program or returned to the donor. Third parties to a donation may not change the original designation of a gift. Shriver Education for the Arts may refuse any gift that does not sufficiently benefit the organization, is in conflict with the Shriver Education for the Arts mission, puts the reputation of Shriver Education for the Arts at risk or is prohibited by law. 

For donations made using ShriverArtsEducation.org, refunds are available for 15 days after a donation is processed. For donations made using any other system, learn whether refunds are available by contacting us at DonorServices@ShriverArtsEducation.org.
