Reaching Sky Foundation is instituting a donation refund policy to ensure fair and transparent processing of requests for refund of donations as digital payments are becoming more frequent. Reaching Sky Foundation expects that all donors will exercise due care and diligence while making donations. Reaching Sky Foundation also recognizes that a donation may be made erroneously or donors may change their mind. Reaching Sky Foundation may also consider that a donation is refunded even if not requested by the donor but was essential to be refunded to ensure compliance with provisions of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (“FCRA Act”), as amended from time to time.
Reaching Sky Foundation will examine each request for refund of donation and endeavors to make the refund. Reaching Sky Foundation may also seek further information / documents and donors must co-operate in this regard.
However, Reaching Sky Foundation is not obliged to make refunds and may, in its discretion, decline any requests for refund of donations, particularly if a tax exemption certificate has been issued.
