Services Provided by P&DF
We review, verify and calculate the cost of each woman & Student request before we post it on the Sites for Donors to view. Our efforts include, but are not limited to, screening the proposed dream for compliance with the PassionsDreams.org eligibility requirements, restricting women and student to addresses that have been provided by the school system, Youth Organization, shelter and such as correct locations, confirming the existence of requested materials, and determining a cost for the request. Whenever practical, we disburse funds directly to the service/product provider of the necessary materials ourselves and arrange for them to be delivered to the woman or child. For donations of $100 or more, or for lesser donation amounts which fully fund a project or complete the funding of a project, we arrange to the best of our ability for a woman or child letter, photographs of the completed dream and thank-you notes to be sent to the Donor(s) after completion of the funded dream/project.
Sometimes the specific components included in a woman or child dream change after we receive your donation. In the unusual case that this happens, P&DF will review the woman and child's modified request/dream. If our review determines the modified request/dream is reasonably similar to the woman and child's original request/dream, we will make a determination to continue the funding of the request/dream.
P&DF reserves the right to exclude any Donor from use of the Sites, in P&DF's sole discretion. All directions and requirements stated on the Sites regarding Donors or donations shall apply to any donation offered or made by you.
