This Experience is part of a fundraising campaign for Our Change Foundation (“Our Change Foundation”), which is a United States 501(c)(3) public charity (Federal Tax ID #86-3353394). Our Change Foundation retains exclusive control over all donations raised in this Experience.
(a) How it works: Omaze and Our Change Foundation work together to offer incredible Experiences, like this one. You don’t have to donate to enter, but if you do, 100% of your donation goes to Our Change Foundation, who then distributes the donations, minus the Experience fees and costs, to the nonprofit(s) identified on the experience page (the “Designated Grantee(s)”). Our model allows Our Change Foundation and the Designated Grantee(s) to spend less time worrying about raising funds and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.
(b) Where your donation goes: For Omaze Owned Experiences, like this one, 15% of the total donations goes to the Designated Grantee(s) via a grant from Our Change Foundation. (If there are multiple Designated Grantees, then this amount is equally distributed to each). Omaze uses the remaining amount to pay for the Experience costs, such as Prize costs, payment processing fees, and advertising to awesome people like you, and to cover our operating costs of providing and maintaining the technology and team that makes this all happen. Owned Experiences have higher costs associated with prizing and promotion, which is why a larger percentage goes to Experience costs.
(c) Designated Grantee Eligibility: Before every Experience, Our Change Foundation confirms the Designated Grantee(s) as eligible to receive grants. In the rare case where, after the launch of an Experience but before distribution of the donations, a Designated Grantee fails to maintain eligibility (per Our Change Foundation’s grant-making policies and/or applicable laws), then Our Change Foundation may (i) withhold distribution of the donations until the Designated Grantee is eligible or (ii) reassign the donations to another nonprofit that supports a similar cause. If Our Change Foundation reassigns the donations to an alternate organization, the Experience page will be updated to identify what entity(ies) received the grant(s).
(d) When will the Designated Grantee get the money? Omaze sends 100% of donations from this Experience to Our Change Foundation within 2 business days of Omaze’s receipt of the donation. The speed at which Our Change Foundation distributes the donations to the Designated Grantee(s) depends on the classification of the Experience and can be anywhere from 2 weeks after Omaze received your donation to 90 days from the close of the Experience. In circumstances where a Designated Grantee fails to maintain eligibility to receive grants, the above grant distribution timeframes may be impacted.
For Experiences where the grant amount is a percentage of total donations (e.g., Premiere and Owned Experiences), Our Change Foundation will distribute the donations via multiple grants throughout the duration of the Experience, usually within 10-15 business days following Our Change Foundation’s receipt of donations from Omaze.
For Experiences where the grant amount is a percentage of Adjusted Donations (total donations minus Experience costs), Our Change Foundation will distribute donations after reconciliation of all Experience costs (usually within 15-90 days following the close of the Experience).
