Refund Policy


Charitable gifts are generally not refundable. Refunds will be made in the event of a mistake or if the purpose for which the gift is given cannot be fulfilled by the Foundation. Individuals who receive refunds have the responsibility of correcting any tax filings they have made reflecting the refunded amount. Payments made prior to cancellation will not be refunded.

Event Registration

Refunds of registration fees will be given for cancellations received five business days prior to the event. Special circumstances will be taken into consideration. If the individual decides to not attend the event and would like the event cost to become a charitable contribution for tax purposes, the individual must notify the Foundation in writing that they will not be attending the event and that they wish to contribute the event cost as a charitable deduction. This notification must be made prior to the event.

Hotel and travel cancellations cannot be made through UW Foundation and you must contact the hotel or travel service separately for refunds.
