ModeSens GiveBack Program Terms
When you shop on ModeSens, we will donate 0.5-5.0% of the purchase price to the eligible charitable organization of your choice.
Purchases Eligible for Donations
Millions of products at our partner stores are eligible for donations. Exclusions may apply.
Managing Your ModeSens GiveBack Program Account
You can manage your purchases and other account information on modesens.com. You can use your existing ModeSens account or create a new account if you do not have one.
Choosing a Charitable Organization To Support
Visit your ModeSens account to select a charitable organization to receive donations from your purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible tracked purchase you make at any partner store will result in a donation. You can choose from ten thousand 501(c)(3) public charitable organizations that are registered and in good standing with the IRS (as selected by ModeSens). See Eligible Charitable Organizations for more information regarding organization eligibility. In order to receive donations, each eligible charitable organization must register with ModeSens and provide the information necessary for us to send them donations. You can even select eligible charitable organizations that have not yet registered to receive donations from the ModeSens GiveBack Program and we will contact your chosen organization to ask them to register to receive donations from ModeSens. If your selected organization becomes ineligible or does not register for the ModeSens GiveBack Program, see our process regarding Charitable Organizations that Do Not Register.
Eligible Charitable Organizations
Organizations must be public charitable organizations that are registered and in good standing with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) to be eligible to participate. Eligible charitable organizations must also be located in one of the 50 U.S. states or the District of Columbia. Organizations that engage in, support, encourage, or promote intolerance, hate, terrorism, violence, money laundering, or other illegal activities are not eligible to participate. ModeSens relies on the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control and the Southern Poverty Law Center to determine which organizations fall into these groups. Charitable organizations must also adhere to the ModeSens GiveBack Program Participation Agreement to maintain eligibility. Charitable organizations may choose not to participate in ModeSens GiveBack Program at any time. Although we aim to include only charitable organizations that are in good standing and do not engage in any of the activities described above, we cannot guarantee the good standing and/or conduct of any charitable organization.
From time to time we may highlight one or more charitable organizations from the total list of eligible organizations. We do this to make it easier for customers to choose an organization to support from the ten thousand available, but we do not endorse any particular organization or the causes they support.
Changing Your Charitable Organization
You are welcome to change the charitable organization you want to support at any time. If you make a change, only tracked purchases from partner stores after the change will accrue donations for your newly selected charitable organization. Your change will not affect tracked purchases from partner stores made prior to the change. To change your charitable organization, sign in to your ModeSens account and simply select “Change Charity” under your selected charity.
Charitable Organizations That Do Not Register
If your selected charitable organization does not register, ModeSens will still track donations accrued in each calendar quarter for that organization. Once you make an eligible tracked purchase from partner stores, your selected charitable organization has 8 full calendar quarters to complete their registration. If the charitable organization does not register by the end of the eighth full quarter after your first eligible tracked purchase from a partner store, the donation will be reallocated to other similar charities.
Charitable Organizations That Become Ineligible
These occurrences are relatively rare. If your selected charitable organization becomes ineligible due to a change in IRS standing or another violation of the program participation agreement, you will be notified via email and asked to select a new charitable organization. For changes in IRS standing, we provide organizations with a grace period to continue to accrue donations while they re-establish their tax status; for all other violations of the Participation Agreement, you will be notified no later than the quarter after such disqualification. You will have 30 days to select a new charitable organization and then ModeSens will reallocate the undisbursed donations based on your tracked purchases from partner stores to your new charitable organization. If you do not select a new charitable organization within 30 days, the undisbursed donations based on your previous tracked purchases from partner stores will be reallocated proportionately to other registered charitable organizations in the next quarterly disbursement.
Charitable Organizations That Request To Be Removed from the Program
Charities that opt out of participation in the program are treated as an ineligible organization for reallocation purposes.
For Representatives of Charitable Organizations
