Rules

Any individual may donate. Donations through Give OUT Day are received and receipted by Razoo Foundation, a registered 501c3 nonprofit that operates a donor advised fund to fulfill donor advisements. The donation is designated for a specific LGBTQ nonprofit or nonprofit supporting an LGBT program or group that is registered with Give OUT Day.

The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum donation limit. Donations are tax-deductible and irrevocable (donations will not be refunded). Contribution may be made via credit and debit card only.

The nonprofit organization will receive the full donation, less a flat rate of 4.4%, which covers the credit card processing and disbursement costs, as well as administrative costs for Give OUT Day. There is no fee to participate.

For an organization or group to participate it must first register under the guidelines adopted by the Give OUT Day. To be eligible to participate in the Give OUT Day, organizations must be either:

  • An incorporated 501c3 nonprofit serving the LGBTQ community on a variety of ways such as health/human services, social/recreational activities, arts & culture, legal support, research & public education, issue-based services, advocacy, and operating LGBTQ community centers;
  • A program exclusively serving the LGBTQ community housed within an incorporated 501c3 nonprofit with a broader mission; or
  • A fiscally sponsored project or chapter serving the LGBTQ community receiving monies via an incorporated 501c3 nonprofit.

Organizations must certify that they are registered with the Secretary of State to conduct charitable solicitation.

Organizations will have access to donor name and contact information, unless the donor chooses to make an anonymous contribution. Give OUT Day and Razoo reserve the right to further contact the donor to thank the donor for participating, survey the donor about the experience, provide the option to opt-out to receiving future notifications from Give OUT Day, and notify the donor of future Give OUT Day activities.

Give OUT Day can modify any restrictions or conditions if, in the sole judgment of the Steering Committee, such restriction or condition becomes unnecessary, incapable of fulfillment or inconsistent with the charitable needs of the community. As such, Give OUT Day reserves the right to deny or condition the distribution of prize grants if, in the judgment of its Steering Committee, such restriction or condition becomes necessary.

What if I am not a nonprofit?

You can become a Champion! A champion is a team composed of one or more individuals that wish to fundraise on behalf of a specific participating nonprofit. You will have access to the same tools and trainings provided but you MUST be signed up under a participating 501c3.

In order to become a Champion (as an individual or group) you must pick a participating nonprofit and create a fundraising page under them. If the nonprofit organization is not listed or is not participating, you should encourage them to! It is totally free!

About Your Donation

All donations made on giveout.razoo.com are made to the Razoo Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization which permits donors to advise a regranting of their donations to IRS 501(c)(3) organizations. It is Razoo Foundation’s normal practice to regrant 97.1% of its contribution to the qualifying organization as advised by the donor, retaining 2.9% for Razoo Foundation’s expenses (including credit card transaction costs). An additional 1.5% of each donation is retained for Bolder Giving's administrative and campaign expenses. However, 100% of your online charitable gift is receipted as a charitable contribution to Razoo Foundation, advised for regrant to your chosen charity.
