We reserve the right at anytime to alter these “Terms of Service”. If we alter the Terms of Service we will post the changes on the Site and revise the date at the top of this page.

It is the responsibility of the Site user to check the Terms of Service at least every fourteen (14) days to check if the Terms of Service have changed. If you have any questions regarding the use of the Site or these Terms of Service, please contact us at info@socialfuneralfunding.com

Failure to abide by these Terms of Service may result in a permanent suspension or termination of your account with Social Funeral Funding. In the event of suspension or termination of an account any funds will end immediately and be removed from the site.

Creating a Social Funeral Funding Event:

Registered users/Funeral Homes of the Site can create an Event to accept donations to pay for final and future expenses. Events may be created to cover the “Final and Future Expenses of an individual, including, but not limited to the fees charged by the Funeral Home. You must provide accurate information when creating an event including but not limited to the name of the deceased, date of birth, and date of passing.  If the Funeral Service Provider you are using is not registered with Social Funeral Funding, you will be prompted to provide us with contact information for the Funeral Home you are using to provide funeral services. We will make a reasonable effort to contact the Funeral Service Provider and notify them of your interest of registering with us. If the Funeral Service Provider registers an account with us, your Event will be sent to the Funeral Home for confirmation. If the Funeral Home does not register an account with Social Funeral Funding, you will be notified by email and your  Event will not become active on our Site. You may not post any material in an Event that is false, inaccurate or otherwise misleading. It is the responsibility of the user/funeral home to ensure that you do not post any copyrighted material including text or images. If your Event is found to be in violation of these Terms of Service, your Event will be suspended, or terminated by either the Funeral Home or Social Funeral Funding. Events do have a time limit and will remain active until the Funeral Service Provider chooses to end the Event. After an Event has ended it may remain visible on the Site, but can no longer receive Donations. In the event that the goal amount is in excess of what was set then the Funeral Service Provider must provide a refund by check to the Family/Funeral Event Organizer/Personal Representative/Executor/Executrix. It is the responsibility of the Funeral Service Provider to contact the Family/Funeral Event Organizer/Personal Representative/Executor/Executrix after ending an Event to arrange a refund by check if necessary.

Social Funeral Funding offers “Services” to its partners/users. This may include “Funeral Homes”, “Funeral Service Providers”, “Mortuaries” “Undertakers”, and other users (registered and licensed within State regulations to be a funeral home). The Services are designed to allow a Funeral Fund Organizer to create an “Event” to accept monetary donations from “Donors”. In order for an event to become active on SocialFuneralFunding.com, it must be linked to a Funeral Home account and be accepted by the Funeral Home and SocialFuneralFunding.com. The Funeral Home must set the event goal amount and reserves the right to change the goal amount at any time. The Funeral Home also reserves the right to deny, suspend, or end the event at any time. Donations made to an event will be deposited directly into the Funeral Home business/savings bank account and not to a family or anyone else as soon as the payment is processed. There is a $24.99 monthly administration fee in order to partner with us.  Also, a percentage of each Donation will be charged as a fee for our Services and to our third party payment processor. Please see the Fees section for more details. Funeral Funds are not charities and your donations are not tax-deductible charitable contributions. By accepting these terms of service, you acknowledge that donations made to an event are not deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions.

Registering an Account:

You must be at least 18 years old and by registering an account you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old.

You are responsible for all actions performed on the Site using your account.

Donating to an Event:

You agree that all donations made on the Site through the payment processor associated with the Event are made voluntarily by you. Social Funeral Funding attempts to ensure the accuracy of Events  by having all donations go directly to its Funeral Home Partners business/savings bank account instead of the Family/Funeral Fund Organizer. Donations are made through a third party payment processor, and Social Funeral Funding cannot refund donations made to a Funeral Event. However, we will assist in any way and can put you in touch with the third party payment processor in order for you to request a refund. Refunds given by the third party payment processor are at the sole discretion of the payment processor and in accordance with their terms of service.

In the event that an Event receives more donations than the goal amount to cover the expenses of the funeral service/event/future expenses the surplus must be given to the Family/Funeral Event Organizer/Personal Representative/Executor/Executrix.
