What if I am experiencing an error on the donation page?
Please delete symbols such as # and & (for example, Apt #31). We have found that this "fixes" most of the processing problems. If your gift form still is not working, please call us directly at (408) 408-554-4400.
How does a donor or gift count towards a challenge gift?
A donor is counted as each individual email address linked to a transaction. A gift is counted as an individual transaction made to a specific area.
Is my gift tax-deductible?
