Refund Policy

Plan care foundation has developed a donation refund policy as part of our commitment to honoring and respecting the financial contributions that people make to Plan India. All donations are disbursed in a timely fashion to Plan India supported projects working with children to ensure that the program objectives are met. Plan care foundation relies on donations to design and implement the work and achieve the outcomes with respect to education, health and protection for children, any changes in the quantum of donations adversely impacts the program outcomes. We recognise the importance of donations and want to ensure we establish appropriate principles of transparency and fairness with regard to the management of refunds.

This policy outlines the circumstances under which Plan care foundation Branch Office (hereafter ‘Plan care’) will refund a donation. This policy is applicable for only for Non-earmarked donations. Donations to specific project/CSR donations are not refundable.

This policy applies to all those who make financial donations to Plan India and to Plan India employees and volunteers responsible for processing and managing financial donations.

Plan India expects that anyone wishing to donate considers their decision carefully and checks donation amounts during transactions.Plan care foundation recognises that it is possible to make an error when making an on-line donation or for the donors to change their mind about the donation made. It can also occur that an error is made by Plan India or our payment gateway.Under this policy Plan India will endeavour to refund donations in accordance with the following rules:

If an error is made in making a donation or if the donor changes their mind, we will honour all requests for refund that are made in writing within 15 (fifteen) days of the date the donation was made.
