Network for Good appears on your credit card statement because you made an online donation to a charity (through their website or through any of our partner sites like Capital One, Google One Today, or Crowdrise ). Network for Good's Donor Advised Fund is an accredited charity by the Better Business Bureau that processes donations to thousands of nonprofits each month.
Network for Good has created technology that allows you to support any charity, anywhere online. Networkforgood.org is a nonprofit Donor-Advised Fund*, so when you make a donation through the Network for Good giving system we re-grant your contribution to the nonprofit(s) you have selected in our monthly disbursement. That is why Network for Good is the merchant of record that appears on your credit card statement.
Don't worry - you can have 100% confidence that your donation will reach your favorite charity. Network for Good has a safe and secure website accredited by the Better Business Bureau. But don't just take our word for it! Thousands of nonprofits and hundreds of thousands of your fellow donors trust Network for Good to distribute their donations: Over $1 billion dollars have been disbursed to over 100,000 nonprofits since our inception in November 2001 by AOL, Cisco and Yahoo.
When will the charity receive my donation? Disbursement is on the 15th of the following month for all donations made in the prior month. For example, all donations made in May 2013 will be disbursed to the charities on June 15th, 2013. We do notify charities as soon as donations are made so that they can promptly acknowledge donors in the meantime.
Can I change my transaction details? Unfortunately not. Once the donation has been completed we cannot change donor name, address, amount, or recipient charity.
Is the donation fully tax deductible? Yes, the full amount of the charitable transaction, including any grant to Network for Good is tax-deductible, as long as the donor is not receiving any goods or services for their donation. For any thank you gifts or incentives offered independently by the charity, the value of the gift is non-tax deductible and is fulfilled directly by the charity.
