What is Horizons Giving Day?

On May 12, 2016 the entire Horizons network of 50 programs in 17 states will come together to raise funds for our existing programs and create new programs across the country.

How does it work?

Horizons National will host Horizons Giving Day, a 24-hour giving event encouraging charitable donations through our online giving platform, Razoo.

Each participating organization will have an individualized web page to promote their cause. This web page can also be used for year-round online fundraising.

Individuals will be able to donate money to the Horizons program of their choice leading up to and on May 12, 2016. All donations made to local programs stay local and donations made to Horizons National help to create new programs across the country.

All donations are tax deductible and irrevocable. (Donations will not be refunded). Donors will receive a receipt for their gift. The nonprofit will receive contact information for each donor, unless the donor elects to remain anonymous.

The Razoo Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization which permits donors to advise a re-granting of their donations to other IRS recognized qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations, will accept the gifts and will then re-grant the monies to the nonprofits selected by the donors.

Who is behind it?

HORIZONS GIVING DAY is powered by Razoo, the industry leader in 24 hour giving days, with a crowdfunding platform built to serve all 501c3 nonprofits. Philanthropy is the core mission of Razoo, and the company is committed to creating opportunities to support nonprofits.

How much of the donation will go to the nonprofit?

During HORIZONS GIVING DAY, the Razoo Foundation will retain 6.9% plus $0.30 per transaction for Razoo Foundation expenses and campaign costs (including credit card transaction costs).

Donors have the option to cover these fees during the checkout process, allocating 100% of their intended donation to your nonprofit.

Is there a minimum or maximum donation?

The minimum donation for HORIZONS GIVING DAY is $10. There is no maximum donation limit for GIVING DAY. Please email info@horizonsnational.org to make a donation lower than $10. Offline donations to Horizons National can be sent to 120 Post Road West, Suite 202, Westport, CT 06880.

There is no maximum amount an organization may receive.

Do I need an account on Razoo to donate?

No, you do not need to create an account to make a donation. However, if you plan to give multiple times during Horizons Giving Day creating an account means you only have to enter your credit card information once. Your account also collects your tax receipts in one location and enables you to track your donation, review the charities you support and schedule future giving.
