As a charitable 501(c)(3) organization, CaringBridge may ask Users to provide charitable donations to CaringBridge. Donations ensure families can use CaringBridge free of charge. CaringBridge will inform Users of the opportunity to donate on the CaringBridge websites, within email communications and within direct mail letters. Users can opt–out of email and direct mail letter communications.
From time to time, Members may post information on an individual CaringBridge Site to let other Users know how they can contribute money to help someone in need. Our concern is that some of these requests for help may be fraudulent, and our Users may be deceived. We cannot review every posting on the Site and have no way of policing these requests or determining their authenticity. Accordingly, we urge you not to respond to any fundraising requests that may be posted on an individual unless you are absolutely certain, from first-hand knowledge, that the request is legitimate and that your donation will be used in the manner you intend. CARINGBRIDGE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, FOR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGES CAUSED OR ALLEGED TO BE CAUSE IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR RESPONSE TO ANY SOLICITATION CONTAINED ON ANY INDIVIDUAL CARINGBRIDGE SITE. We also want to remind you that contributions made in response to solicitations posted on individual CaringBridge Sites are not contributions to CaringBridge and may not be tax deductible.
The Site may provide links to other Internet websites or resources that are neither controlled nor endorsed by CaringBridge. CaringBridge is not responsible in any manner for any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available on linked sites.
