FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
FOR USERS & DONORS
What's the point of this website?
Ans: We here at MyFiki want to make sure that people and businesses can donate to non-profit organizations, even if they aren't comfortable giving money, or want to make sure that donations are used for what the organization really needs. Too often, with tight budgets, non-profit organizations have needs, and when they receive money for a project, it has to be reallocated to an operational budget or an emergency. MyFiki ensures that the non-profit gets what it needs, with as little time and difficulty as possible.
What does MyFiki stand for?
Ans: MyFiki stands for, "My Fundraising Initiatives built on Kindness and Involvement." We at MyFiki wanted to start at the source of all fundraising by having our nonprofit partners get directly involved and have a voice in the process. Without modest but direct requests, donors can't know what an organization needs. So, we want to remind nonprofits to voice their needs with kindness and confidence.
What is your logo?
Ans: Our logo isn't about molecular biology... it's about building community. Individuals, small businesses, and large corporations can come together and help the non-profit organizations at the heart of our mission. So, maybe it is about science, the science of connection.
How much does it cost? Really.
Ans: The only cost is the purchase of the item being sent to the nonprofit organization, plus shipping. There are no fees, charges, price increases, or markups. Ever. MyFiki does not build in any charge to users or nonprofits.
How do I know I'm donating to a real non-profit organization?
Ans: MyFiki asks for an EIN number for each organization upon registration, but we do not require one to register. If one is not listed in an organization's profile, the number zero will be present. We hope that our users do some research of their own since it's the responsible thing to do, to know where your money is going. MyFiki.org cannot make any guarantees regarding an organization's legal status but we research everyone who registers so we know who our partners are, and so do you.
Is my information safe?
Ans: Absolutely. MyFiki does not collect your private information and will not sell or distribute any information, ever, since we don't have any! Your purchases are only tracked through Amazon.com and only the information that a nonprofit organization shares with us, including their Amazon.com Wishlist, are saved.
Is my financial information safe?
Ans: MyFiki does not track or store your information. All purchases are completed through the fully encrypted customer portal on Amazon.com.
How do I get a tax-deduction receipt?
Ans: Just like if you were to donate an item in person, we ask that you notify the nonprofit that something is coming their way. You may also leave your address in the notes section of your Amazon.com purchase for the nonprofit to receive when they receive your donation. If you leave your name and address, it will be easier for them to mail you a receipt.
