Other Laws

Donations from charities (501(c)(3) organizations) and social welfare groups (501(c)(4) organizations) are not subject to any contributions limits. She Votes Illinois will disclose when requests for donations are in relation to partisan events or purposes. All donations will be reported to the Illinois State Board of Elections. Donations to She Votes Illinois are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. She Votes Illinois cannot be responsible for your treatment of these donations on your tax returns. It is your responsibility to report your donations accurately as required and to pay your taxes. We recommend consulting your tax adviser or tax preparer if you have any questions.

Refund policy

She Votes Illinois will attempt to accommodate requests for refunds of donations made in error. We do our best to honor refunds requested for reasons such as input error, when a contributor accidentally donates twice or enters the wrong donation amount. She Votes Illinois will not consider refunds for other reasons such as a change in political or personal opinion or the cancellation of an event. She Votes Illinois reserves the right to refuse a refund request for these or other reasons.

All refund requests are subject to the availability of the contribution funds. Because She Votes Illinois uses these contributions to make payments for goods or services, She Votes Illinois will only refund a contribution if we still have the funds. For this reason, it is of the utmost importance that you make your request for a refund as soon after making a contribution in error as possible and contact us here.

All refunds issued by She Votes Illinois will be credited back to the card used to make the contribution if processed by ActBlue. Otherwise, She Votes Illinois will issue a check back to the donor.
