This is really interesting… We do not guarantee donations go entirely to fund the charity projects you’ve selected, and we believe this is important. We give our partners the flexibility to also spend these funds on related projects, as needs arise in the communities they serve.

This actually creates the greatest impact. It allows these charities to respond to the immediate needs of people, and use their expertise to direct resources to be as effective as possible.

That said – donations are not sent as general ‘unrestricted funding’. Funds raised must be spent on the featured projects you have chosen, or on related projects when necessary.
