Pledges and donations

Pledges or donations (“Contributions”) made by Members to ACRI through the FamilyQuest Network are used to fund research activities at ACRI.

Contributions through FamilyQuest are charitable gifts. The Member agrees that by making a Contribution they are not paying for any service, expressed or implied.

All references and calculations involving currency are denominated in Canadian dollars.

Contributions are non-refundable. The Member must be an authorized account holder or an authorized user of the chosen method of payment used to pay for the Contribution through FamilyQuest.

Daily or per day pledges are calculated and billed based on 30-day period, 12 times a year. For example, a pledge of 25 cents per day made on the 5th of March will be billed as $7.50 on the fifth day of every subsequent month, even if the month has fewer or more days than 30. Any additional pledges are added to your existing monthly total for the month in which the additional pledge is made. You will not be billed incrementally for the days that pass before the next billing date.

Charitable tax receipts will be provided on an annual basis and will be made for the amount of pledges honored and received during the previous fiscal year. Charitable receipts for Contributions made through FamilyQuest for ACRI will be provided by the Georges L Dumont Hospital Foundation on behalf of ACRI.

The information that you provide in relation to your Contribution is used only to process your Contribution as set out in the Privacy Policy.

The Member’s right to access the Network and its content or to use the Services will immediately cease upon termination of the Member’s account.

Termination of access to the Network and the Services does not relieve the Member of obligations arising or accruing prior to such termination, or limit any liability which the Member may have to ACRI, including without limitation any of the indemnification obligations contained within this Agreement.

Provisions of this Agreement which by their nature shall survive termination include, without limitation, all ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
