GENERAL QUESTIONS
1.How is all the money raised through this campaign spent?

Would go to creating a “911” for locating medical resources like the nearest available ICU bed and blood of the required type in the closest blood bank in Mumbai.  Armman USA is a completely run by Volunteers with Zero overheads. The volunteers will bear the administrative and operational costs of running this campaign.

DONATIONS

1.How much should I donate? 

Any amount that you can donate is appreciated. However, we do require a minimum donation amount of $5 or Rs. 200 if you make an online donation because we are charged by credit card companies for credit card processing. We don’t want donors’ well-intended gift to be offset by processing fees.

4.What is Matching Donations?

Matching donations is a charitable practice where an organization (typically the donor's employer) pledges to give an equal (or some proportional) amount of money to certain charities registered with them (Armman could be on this list). The practice of matching donations thus doubles (or proportionately increases) the amount that Armman and Project Hero receives. ARMMAN USA is on the list of Google and Miscrosoft. We would appreciate it if you help us become a part of your companies Matching Donations program.

5.Will my employer match my donation? How does this work?

A lot of companies match donations made by their employees. If you don’t know whether your employer gives matching donations, please contact your HR department to find out if your company matches employee donations and let us know so we can add your company's name to our list.

 

After you make a donation to Armman, please do the following:

Obtain a matching donation form from your employer's HR dept. (In some companies, you will not need to have to deal with any paper forms, in which case there will be an online alternative, and we will be notified of your donation by email. Please check with your HR department how it works in your company.)

Fill out the matching form and mail it to us (if within the US) at

 

ARMMAN USA (matching funds),

PO Box 1266,

Bellevue, WA 98009,

USA. 

 

Please enclose your contact information (name, address and phone number). We will mail a receipt once the cheque is received. If you prefer an e-receipt then please include your email address.

 

We will verify your donation, attach our non-profit organization certificate and send it back to your employer. Your employer will send us a check for the amount that is matched.

If we are registered with your company, all you need to do is fill out your company's matching donation form.
