Donations to HGSF

HGSF utilizes a third-party payment tool to process donations online. Fees associated with such donations may change without notice. By making a donation you acknowledge that you are at least eighteen years of age, legally competent, and agree to all other provisions of these Terms of Use. You also agree that all details you provide to us for the purposes of making such a donation will be accurate, correct, including ownership and validity of any payment method such as a credit or debit card. HGSF or its payment processor may validate your payment details before processing your donation.

If you select to make a reoccurring donation your method of payment will be charged monthly, starting on the date of first donation. If your method of payment is declined or otherwise rejected, you agree to promptly provide updated payment information to us. We will also attempt to contact you to let you know updated payment information is required. If we are unable to reach you and obtain valid payment information by the time of your next scheduled donation, your reoccurring donation will be terminated. If you wish to discontinue your reoccurring donation, you may do so via the Fundraise Up online portal, or by contacting Donor Services at 415-625-1006 or development@habitatgsf.org.
