GoVoluntr will make every effort to accurately record volunteer hours. As a Do Gooder it is your duty to ensure you have correctly entered volunteer time with GoVoluntr and provided the necessary verification from your project supervisor. If you notice an error in recorded volunteer time it is your responsibility to notify GoVoluntr of any errors in time entered for your project. If we receive notification of a mistake GoVoluntr will correct and revise the volunteer time up to 14 days after the completion of the project.
While GoVoluntr does its best to provide Do Gooders with a positive volunteering experience, we understand that every so often volunteers may have a negative experience. Although GoVoluntr cannot take responsibility for the actions of a project supervisor we will attempt to address and rectify the concern with the sponsoring organization. If GoVoluntr receives consistent grievances about wrongful treatment of Do Gooders, GoVoluntr reserves the right to prevent the sponsoring organization from future access to the GoVoluntr site and services.
Conversely, GoVoluntr hopes that all Do Gooders conduct themselves appropriately while volunteering on a project. If, however, a Do Gooder turns out to be a No Gooder and fails to fulfill the assigned responsibilities or act in a responsible manner for the sponsoring organization GoVoluntr cannot be held accountable for these actions. Upon notification from the sponsoring organization about such misconduct, GoVoluntr will make an earnest effort to address and rectify the concern. If GoVoluntr receives consistent grievances about inappropriate conduct from a volunteer, we reserve the right to prevent that individual from future access to the GoVoluntr site and services.
Joining GoVoluntr is free. Nonprofit Users and Volunteers may utilize applicable Services at no charge. While not in the foreseeable future, GoVoluntr reserves the right to charge a subscription fee ("Fees") for the use of certain aspects or all of the Services. GoVoluntr expressly reserves the right to change the Fees at any time, upon notice to you. When you use a GoVoluntr service with an associated fee you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged, which we may change from time to time. Changes to fees are effective after we provide you with notice by posting the changes on the Sites. We may choose to temporarily change the fees for our services for promotional events or new services, and such changes are effective when we post the temporary promotional event or new service on the Sites.
We do not charge you a fee for becoming a Project Creator. GoVoluntr will retain 7% of each successfully funded project in order to cover the expenses incurred by doing business. We reserve the right to adjust the Fees with notice to current Project Creators.
Organization Accounts are purchasable, and billed, on a recurring periodic basis (e.g., daily, weekly, quarterly or annually).
