TAGG Fundraising Terms and Payout Information
TAGG is committed to maintaining an active and engaging fundraising program that serves our community and business partners. To achieve this, we have implemented the following policy for TAGG fundraising accounts.
This policy outlines the requirements and consequences associated with the failure to meet the requirements, including not reaching the annual fundraising threshold and not having an active email address on file for your fundraising account.
By using TAGG’s fundraising platform, you agree to adhere to these policies. We reserve the right to modify these policies as needed to ensure the continued success of our program. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please contact TAGG’s customer support for assistance at email@example.com.
TAGG Account Requirements & Deactivation
–Minimum Annual Fundraising Requirement:
Due to the ongoing costs of maintaining fundraising accounts on the website, TAGG requires all fundraising accounts (organization, team and member level) to raise a minimum of $25 on a rolling 12 month basis (before TAGG’s retained percentage). Accounts not raising at least $25 will be deactivated from TAGG and unable to raise funds.
Unsubscription(s) or Undelivered Email(s):
TAGG requires at least one active email address on file for each fundraising account. In the event that your account is flagged due to unsubscription or email bouncing of the email address(es) on file for your account, TAGG will make one reasonable attempt to encourage you to resubscribe or reestablish new contact(s) for your account. We value your participation and are dedicated to maintaining an active community. TAGG allows a grace period of 30 days to facilitate reactivation, during which we anticipate your response or resubscription. After this period, if there is no response or resubscription, it will result in deactivation of the fundraising account from the TAGG platform.
When a fundraising account is deactivated from the TAGG program due to not meeting the TAGG account requirements, a notification will be sent and the following conditions will apply, depending on the current account balance:
Account Balance Less than $25 – If the balance due is less than $25, funds will be forfeited.
Account Balance Greater than $25 – If the balance due is greater than $25, TAGG will mail the remaining balance by check.
MONTHLY EMAIL RECAPS
Each month, the contact person(s) on file for all nonprofits, places of worship, school, team/club, and members will receive an email recap including funds raised, current balance, and either the option to request a payout OR when the next payout is scheduled.
Nonprofits, Schools, Places of Worship, and Teams/Clubs: 10th of each month
Members (Youth Sports, TAGG for Tuition & TAGG for Teachers): 15th of each month
At least one email address must be subscribed and on file to remain active and ensure we can send recaps.
If you unsubscribe and/or your email bounces, TAGG will make one attempt to get a new contact or get you to resubscribe. After 30 days of no response or resubscribing, we will turn your account to inactive and no more funds can be raised.
