Donation Policy

It is ElectionsMeter's policy to accept funding from any donor and whether monetary or in kind, provided that acceptance does not:

  • impair TI's independence to pursue its mission
  • endanger its integrity and reputation.

ElectionsMeter must not risk jeopardising its reputation for honesty, openness and integrity. Its reputation could be compromised if received funding from sources that were perceived to be pursuing activities inconsistent with ElectionsMeter mission. ElectionsMeter accept contributions from individuals, private foundations, corporations, other donor-advised funds, trusts estates. This does not imply any endorsement of a donating company's policies or record. It is advisable that a potential donating body has made a public commitment to ethical standards (such as the UN Global Compact, the Business Principles etc.), and ElectionsMeter may request that donors sign a commitment to integrity before any donation from that company is accepted. ElectionsMeter should not accept a donation from a company that is found to have engaged in corruption unless the company can demonstrate that this was a violation of the company's policies, that breach of these policies are being addressed in an appropriate manner, or that its policies have been amended to proscribe a similar violation in future. ElectionsMeter works with companies on the understanding that they are working towards a business environment in which bribery is not accepted. Any contribution accepted by ElectionsMeter will be considered irrevocable and unconditional. Once contributions are accepted by the Fund, they are not refundable and are assets owned and held by ElectionsMeter.


ElectionsMeter shall list all donations over € 1,000 and publicly disclose them, including in the Chapter's Annual Report and on its website. If there is a significant risk that receiving funds from a particular source would impair ElectionsMeter's independence or if there is a significant risk to ElectionsMeter's reputation from public association with the donor, then funding from that source must not be accepted. ElectionsMeter encourages Donors to consult their tax advisors regarding the tax deduction. Note that ElectionsMeter is not obliged to give charitable tax receipts.

It could damage ElectionsMeter’s reputation if discussions with an inappropriate sponsor became public knowledge. Also, ElectionsMeter shall not be the source of any public information about rejected sponsorships. To reduce liability and maintain relationships in case details change in the future, rejections shall be kept confidential. The information will normally be known only to the sponsor


Politician (political party) Sponsorship Fund

ElectionsMeter Fund is committed to increasing charitable giving by providing advantageous ways to give, useful information, and unbiased guidance. The Fund is recognized as a tax-exempt public charity as defined in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Sections 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi), and is eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions under IRC Section 170(c). The Fund does not provide commercial activity and no service is provided in exchange to donor.

Donors to the Fund are subject to the terms and conditions of Fund’s Policies. The Fund reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of its Policies at any time.

The Fund accepts contributions from individuals, private foundations, corporations, other donor-advised funds, trusts estates. Any contribution accepted by the Fund will be considered irrevocable and unconditional. Once contributions are accepted by the Fund, they are not refundable and are assets owned and held by the Fund.


The Fund keeps records of contributions. Statements are published to Donors showing account activities. Donors indicate an intention that their donation be provided to particular receiver. The Fund will make every effort to meet this intent but has sole discretion in the use of donated funds. It is important to note, however, that the account and its assets are the property of the Fund.

The Fund will send a receipt describing the contribution to the contributing Donor’s address as soon as possible, usually within ten business days. Confirmations should be read carefully. Any errors must be reported immediately to the Fund. The Fund will liquidate contributions as quickly as possible after all of the requisite paperwork has been received, and after the assets have been received in good order. During high volume periods, processing time may take longer to complete.

The Fund incurs expenses in operating sponsorship accounts. These include Donor Services phone support, mailed notices, statements and communications, bank fees, general administration, and online services. To cover the costs associated with these services, ElectionsMeter Fund assesses an account administrative fee.

ElectionsMeter Fund will charge each sponsorship account an administrative fee equal to 15% of Fund gross receipts for the project’s work. The minimum annual administrative fee is €100, regardless of balance. In addition to the administrative fee on gross receipts, ElectionsMeter Fund will retain interest earned by a project’s funds on deposit with the Fund.

In order to avoid a situation occurring where a fundraiser has promised a tax receipt but the Fund is subsequently unable to issue one, prior approval by the Fund of fundraising initiatives is required. Tax receipts will not be issued without this prior approval. The Fund encourages Donors to consult their tax advisors regarding the tax deduction.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE, SHALL WE, OUR SUBSIDIARY AND PARENT COMPANIES OR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, OR THE INABILITY TO USE, THE SITE AND APPS, INCLUDING ITS MATERIALS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES, OR THIRD PARTY MATERIALS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE AND APPS, EVEN IF WE ARE ADVISED BEFOREHAND OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

In the event of any conflict between any such third-party terms and conditions and these Terms of Service, these Terms of Service shall govern. This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
