About CrownLife International Inc 501(c)(3) “CLI”The “CLI” websites, web applications, and mobile applications are products of CrownLife International, or our partners and payment processors. We are a non profit church ministry registered in the State of Louisiana with offices in Georgia. The CLI website has been built by CLI with software and other technologies that have been designed, architected and developed by Tithely. “Tithe.ly” In addition we use the services of Givelify and giving app, DonorBox and their giving systems including Stripe and Paypal. CLI provides back office services for vetted and partnering native pastors, missionaries, and religious organizations. We are a bridge between donors, native pastors and missionaries. Over 90% of funding is transmitted to our native pastors and missionaries serving overseas, after arriving at our non profit bank accounts via secure funds transfer agencies and directly to the donee’s bank account.
Each of our Field Partners are vetted to the degree and must provide written letters of verification in order to be considered for a partnership with CLI. In addition they must provide to us a bonafide national id from their nation. All initial Field Partners candidates are assigned to a 30 day probationary period, which may, or may not be extended up to an additional 60 days at CLI’s sole discretion during which time we attempt to further vet Field Partner candidates (Our Probationary and Approved Field Partners are referred to as our “Donees”)—who source their own donors to use our sites to donate to them. Each donor who donates to a probationary, or permanent Field Partner of CLI does so as a voluntary free will offering and nothing is given in exchange for their offerings. Donors who give to our field partners have the sole decision if they freely choose to donate to the Donees based on their relationship and knowledge of the donees. CLI only serves as a bridge to facilitate the free will donations from donors to their donees.
Our vetting of CLI Field Partners is solely for our own determination with regards to whether to list the Field Partner on our site and does not imply/nor convey that we are responsible for their ministries, nor the decision of donors to donate to them. Let the donors beware and make their own freewill decisions when providing donations to listed Field Partners as CLI has no responsibility for the donor, donee relationship. CLI will receive payments made by users of the Site (each, a “Donor”), and issue instant email receipts and year end giving reports, as well as transfer to the to the “donee” minus a 10% administrative fee (Home Fee) offering that each Field Partner agrees to provide to CLI at the point of application. This can be considered as a pass-through contribution, which is a contribution made to a non-profit entity (referred to as the recipient), who then transfers the funds to a beneficiary “donee” (Field Partner) on behalf of the donor. This type of transaction is referred to as an "agency" transaction.
Pursuant to the use of our site and this Agreement, the Field Partner (donee) appoints CLI to receive free will donations from Donors (each a “Payment”) and to issue receipts, to provide basic bookkeeping services, immediate receipts to donors a well as year end report to donors, to deduct the administrative fees, which may be amended from time to time at CLI’s sole criteria, and to forward such freewill net donations to the Donee. Donee represents that it is party to a separate agreement with each Donor (such as, for example, a promise to donate) for which it receives payment hereunder and that payments received by Donee hereunder are only pursuant to that agreement.
CLI is not an agent of Donor in receiving Payments. CLI is not a bank, money transmitter, or other money services business, as defined by the Bank Secrecy Act or state banking law. The relationship of CLI to each Donee and donor shall also be governed pursuant to the rules and regulations of Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, DonorBox, Givelify and Tithley, World Remit, Western Union, Money Gram, XE Money and other donor and sending platforms that CLI may engage in the transcourse of serving the donee and donor.
