First and foremost, Thrive Global values integrity with money. It's a big deal to entrust us with your money, and we want to use it well.
Second, Thrive Global, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, so all donations are tax-deductible.
Finally, we strive to be transparent with where donations are going. Here's the lowdown:
All contributions go either to our "General Fund" or to our "Designated Fund."
GENERAL FUND: Unless otherwise noted, donations will automatically go into our General Fund. Much of these donations will be moved to our Designated Fund (see below) to directly support local projects in Uganda. After all, that is why we exist! However, some of these general donations will also be used to cover administrative costs like website subscription fees, bookkeeping software, etc. Though administrative expenses aren't as glamorous as on-the-ground expenses in Uganda, they are absolutely vital in order to keep our organization running.
DESIGNATED FUND: Any donations specifically earmarked as a "Designated Fund" will only be used for local projects in Uganda (and whatever fees the Ugandan government takes when funds are wired to Africa). Designated funds directly help families & individuals in need, pay indigenous staff, fund local projects in Uganda, etc.
