What are the tax implications on money raised?
Since each situation is different we advise the beneficiary to seek advice from a qualified tax professional or attorney. We do not supply any advice pertaining to fundraiser or donor tax implications for giving or receiving money. See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/faq
We'd like to shout out a huge 'thank you' to the Hogue Family for their generous donation! It's our first donation and was received via regular mail! We were surprised beyond words when we opened it! We've taken the liberty of scanning your sweet note accompanying your donation, and have posted it to our donor page. May God richly bless you for your love and support! We will absolutely keep you updated. Thank you also for your encouraging words. They came at a time when we felt like giving up. Thank you again so much!

Dear Christopher and Angela,

Are donations refundable?
No, refunds are not possible because all contributions are immediately disbursed. If you have a dispute with a donation to a fundraiser, please contact the fundraiser directly. Donations go directly to the fundraisers account. YouCaring has no control over any money going to fundraisers.
Are contributions tax-deductible?
Donations made on YouCaring.com are generally not tax-deductible because you are usually not giving directly to a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization with a government issued EIN Tax ID #. Please consult your own tax adviser on any giving you may do on YouCaring.com. Any money going to YouCaring.com is also not tax deductable. YouCaring.com is an LLC with a goal to be a mission driven social venture. YouCaring helps those who typically have a difficult time raising money: those that are not non-profits or 501(c) 3 compliant. YouCaring.com wants the fundraiser to receive 100% of your donation. Non-profits spend up to 40% of their resources fundraising. That means less time for programs that are behind their missions. That can also mean that only 60% of your donations make it to their intended purpose. Our goal is to make YouCaring.com the most efficient form of fundraising available.
How much of each donation goes to the beneficiary?
The total amount, minus the PayPal or WePay processing fee (typically 2.9% + a $.30 transaction fee). There are no website fees.
Can I make a donation without being a member of PayPal?
Yes. You can donate with your credit card as a Guest on PayPal (no PayPal account required). Note: Fundraisers must have a Premier Account that is verified. If they do not have a verified account PayPal may force donors to sign up as a security measure. It is the responsibility of the fundraiser to upgrade their account.
How do I know if my donation was processed successfully?
If your donation is processed successfully, you’ll be taken to a confirmation page on YouCaring that says 'Thank you'. You’ll also receive a receipt for the donation via email to use for your records. If you do not see either one of these, your donation did not go through. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for your donation and message to show up on the fundraisers profile page.
Are fundraisers verified as legitimate?
Great question. We have several safeguards in place and YouCaring makes every effort to verify fundraisers as legitimate. The YouCaring staff works closely with the fundraisers on our site. If suspicion is raised, we will always request more information. If we detect a problem, the fundraiser is removed and the account is closed. Thankfully, YouCaring is a community of people dedicated to helping one another. As a result, our users watch for and flag posts they think are questionable. But, despite our best efforts, we cannot be responsible for the accuracy of each fundraiser. We recommended that you only donate to the fundraisers that you are familair with and that you feel confident about.
All donations are processed securely using industry-standard Secure Socket Layer encryption or SSL.
Somewhere along the way, I failed to mention that donations are also accepted, and welcomed via postal mail. I apologize for omitting this "very" important detail. I realize that many people don't have a PayPal account, nor do they wish to use a credit card for online transactions. If paying off-line, please mail donations to the address below & made payable to me, or to Charlotte Ann Brown, or Robin Braddy. Also note-"For Brown-Braddy funraiser", in the memo of check or money order. Again, I apologize for any convenience or confusion this may have caused! God Bless you, and please continue to lift up this sweet family in prayer.

We received some disturbing news about Charlotte. Right after entering the nursing home, she developed some sort of eye infection in her right eye that took a long time to heal. Not too long after, when Robin went to visit, she noticed a "HUGE", and very hard swelling ( like a mass), around her right cheek. The doctor treated it as cellulitis and gave her antibiotics, but Robin felt it was something more. Friday she received a call from the nurse. The doctor is now referring her to a surgeon to perform a biopsy. Please pray for Charlotte as she goes for this procedure. We will post the date when we have it. Robin's now thinking that the problem with her eye, and now the swelling, could well been tied to her mother's fall in January. She feels that it's yet another setback, as she's slated to come home before the end of Sept. Continued prayers for Robin as she tries to cope with this new information.
