Individual Terms & Conditions

Welcome to Equitry – Your Delegated Giving Platform, where we connect individuals with businesses to support worthy causes.
This user agreement is effective for all individual accounts as of May 12, 2020.

You understand that:

  • Equitry is a delegated giving service that allows organizations to set up giving campaigns that give funds to individuals for them to make donations to participating charitable organizations.
  • You can accept “Giving with Equitry” funds from sponsoring companies and that some of these funds may have limitations in terms of time and acceptable receiving organizations. You will be informed of any such limitations as you see each offer.
  • For charitable donations, all funds to organizations that are not part of Equitry’s Giving Network are distributed by check through our registered charitable organization, Equitry Giving.
  • You can transfer your own money into an Equitry account via a credit card and that the credit card processor will charge a fee for this – typically a fixed fee of $0.30 USD and 2.9% of the transferred value – and you will be able to see the deduction of this fee in your account records.
  • Equitry will never share your personal information or contact details with any organization unless compelled by law enforcement or government agencies – your transactions will be anonymous, both to the receiving organization and to any sponsor of a “Giving with Equitry” campaign.
  • You can close your account at any time (unless the account is the subject of an investigation) and you will receive the balance of your account excluding any “Giving with Equitry” sponsored funds you currently hold.
  • Because your Equitry account is not designed to hold a large balance of funds, it is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

    • contact you about billing, account management, and other administrative matters;

This user agreement is a contract between you and Sparq TV LLC (the company that owns and delivers the Equitry service) that governs your use of your Equitry account and the Equitry services. We may amend this user agreement at any time by posting a revised version on our website. The revised version will be effective at the time we post it.
