Because donations made to GO Teams are tax deductible they are non-refundable. However, if you choose to withdraw from a team, your funding with the exception of your deposit and any funds already issued to our partners or other vendors (like airlines or hotels etc.) will be placed in a restricted account and be available for your use on a future trip within the next 12 months. It is imperative that you communicate your change in plans to the Outreach Team as soon as possible so that as much of your funding as possible is recovered. It is also your responsibility to communicate your change in plans to your entire support team – donors give in good faith that their gifts will be used for the trip you described in your support letter and deserve to be notified if they will not be used as intended.
If Global Engagement chooses to postpone or cancel a GO Team for any reason all the funds you raised for that trip will be held in your name for a future trip within the next 12 months or until the original team’s travel is rescheduled.
