*Please note all travel fees are estimates and are subject to change
HAFP requires a minimum of 12 guests to keep a week scheduled, individuals and groups less than 12 may register for any week, but, if no additional volunteers sign up for that specific week then the trip will be canceled by HAFP. Any funds contributed for that specific week are subject to the HAFP cancellation policy (see below). Any airfare/lodging penalties to change flights/hotel accommodations are the responsibility of each individual traveler not HAFP.
Where the money goes:
Trip costs vary, dependent on the number of travelers. The above pie chart is an estimate, based on 195 guests annually.
PAYMENT INFORMATION/GENERAL INFORMATION
Each guest will be assigned a Reference Number. This number must be used in all correspondence. Once registration is complete, guests will be provided a fundraising page through Managed Missions. Please note this fundraising platform is different than other fundraising platforms you may be familiar with (Go Fund Me, etc.).
All funds contributed through your page come directly to Hands and Feet Project. These funds are non-refundable, non-transferable, and NOT accessible by you for cash. This is in order to keep the donation tax-deductible for your donors. Any funds over your total due will be considered a general donation to HAFP.
Payments may be made by check to Hands and Feet Project. When paying by check, please include a separate note with the assigned reference number and name of traveler the funds are being designated toward (example: CW15 John Smith). If these instructions are not followed, we cannot guarantee funds will be designated to your trip. It is very important that all items be accurately completed for the funds to be designated appropriately.
HAFP reserves the right to cancel your trip. If your trip is canceled by HAFP, the following, in addition to any other information outlined in HAFP Financial Policies apply to all funds submitted:
- Funds can be held for 12 months from the original date of departure.
- Funds are non-transferable (meaning, the original traveler must be the one to use them; they cannot be transferred to a family/friend).
- If a guest prefers not to reschedule, all funds contributed will be immediately moved to a donation contributing to the current greatest need.
- If a guest does not travel within 12 months, all funds contributed will be moved to a donation contributing to the current greatest need.
- If HAFP has issued your airfare, the traveler will receive a travel credit from the airline; this credit is available for their personal use or to be applied to their rescheduled trip date. Airline vouchers are subject to change fees up to $250. All change/re-ticketing fees are the responsibility of the traveler and are subject to airline policies.
**Although HAFP will make every effort to honor the contribution designation of the donor, contributions become the property of Hands and Feet Project, and HAFP has the discretion to determine how best to use contributions. Such control of the funds by HAFP is required to ensure that they will be used to carry out its functions and purposes, and to ensure donor’s contributions satisfy requirements for tax-deductibility.**
