By placing an order you are offering to purchase a product or make a donation on and subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. Any payments of donations are final and nonrefundable. You may choose to create a Donor Account but are not required to do so in order to donate.

Mental Health America of Greenville County is a non-profit corporation, tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States of America (US). Donations made in US Dollars by US tax payers are tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by law. Our tax ID number will be included on your receipt for your donation. Event registrations are not eligible for deduction.

Images of items for donation such as those for Operation Santa or Colors 4 Hope and all others are for illustration purposes only and may not depict the actual items acquired with donated funds. By making a donation you warrant that the mechanism that you use (credit card or otherwise) is owned by you or you have permission to use it, and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods or donation. When you make a donation your donated funds are charged to your credit card and transferred to MHAGC's PayPal account. Purchases are charged and transferred in the same manner. Donations are made as unrestricted gifts and are not considered to be specified for any particular purpose, with the exception of donations made through the Funds 4 Hope portion of mhagc.org. Since Funds 4 Hope donations are specified for certain purposes MHAGC takes seriously your designation of how you wish your donated funds to be used and will make a good faith effort to use your donated funds as you direct, i.e., to buy socks, combs, color for Colors 4 Hope races and more, but may reallocate donated funds to the area or program of greatest need if necessary. As an example, if Operation Santa needs 400 pairs of  socks and 400 combs, and the need for 400 pairs of socks is met, we may reallocate further funds donated for socks to be used to purchase other items, such as combs or deodorant, etc. Any such reallocated funds will be used with respect to our mission to promote positive mental health for all persons in our community through advocacy, education and service. You as the donator pledge not to seek any reciprocal favors from MHAGC, on the basis of your donation.

Colors 4 Hope merchandise purchased by race participants such as additional T-shirts, color, etc. will be picked up by the participant on the day of the event at the race site. A complementary T-shirt and packet of color are included in the race packet which participants or their designated representatives pick up at a location to be announced, a day or days prior to the Colors 4 Hope race.

Colors 4 Hope merchandise and other merchandise purchased in the Funds 4 Hope portion of mhagc.org is subject to availability.

the link, when activated by a user, must display this Website full-screen and not with a "frame" on the linked website.
