Purchases – Other Terms and Conditions
Acceptance of Donations
Peace Parks Foundation accepts donations in the form of direct deposits, credit card payments, third party online payment systems, and other approved forms of in-kind donations.
Peace Parks Foundation holds bank accounts in South Africa, Mozambique, Zambia and offshore; and has access to accounts through their international fundraising partners in Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States to ensure ease of payment for donors. As soon as the finance department is notified of any payments made to above-mentioned accounts, Peace Parks Foundation will either send donors a receipt of donation and a thank-you letter or comply with reporting requirements specified in the donor contract.
For donations made directly through our online donations system, donors can generate an instant receipt for their transaction as part of the online donation process.
In the case of donations made in-kind, the amount of the donation recorded will be acquired through independent valuation.
Peace Parks Foundation accepts donations only under the premise that no material benefit or advantage will be provided to the donor. The transaction currency for donations made through third party online payment systems will be South African Rand (ZAR).
Refunds and Cancellations
Peace Parks Foundation endeavours to use the donation in accordance with the original specified purpose. Where this is not possible Peace Parks Foundation will contact the donor, or the donor’s representative, to discuss other uses for the funds. If a decision is not agreed upon regarding acceptable alternatives, the donor will be refunded or the contract, and any further payment instalments, discontinued. Where an excess of funds has been raised for a specific purpose, such as a crowd funding campaign, funds will be diverted to other relevant Peace Parks Foundation activities as stated on the original ask. If no such alternative purpose was stated, donors will be notified via email and given the option of having their funds diverted to another Peace Parks Foundation activity, or being refunded. Any request for a refund not covered in the descriptions above will be considered and determined on a case-by-case basis.
