General Donation Questions

My giving history is missing some past donations. Why?

Our online portal shows the giving history for the current and previous calendar years. If you need a donation record for gifts made 2+ years ago, please contact our Donor Services Team.

What is CURE International’s Federal Tax ID number?

Our EIN/tax ID number is 58-2248383.

How much does each surgery cost?

Surgeries range in cost due to many factors, including complexity, recovery time, assistive devices, and country of service. Surgeries with faster recovery times and fewer operating room hours can cost approximately $1,000. Other more complex surgeries can reach $2,000. Some patients do need multiple surgeries.

Can I give in honor/memory of someone?

Yes, you can! When giving online, select the “Dedicate This Donation” box and follow the prompts to give in someone’s honor/memory. If you’re giving via check, please include a note with the person’s name and contact information (email or mailing address), and we will be sure to send them a letter letting them know about your donation.

What percentage of my donation is used for administrative and fundraising costs?

CURE is a top-rated nonprofit organization by external accreditation agencies for its prudent use of funds. Please visit our Financial Accountability page to see our most recent financial numbers, including our annual report, administrative costs, and an independent financial statement/report filed by our auditors.

Are there any transaction fees associated with my donations?

Unfortunately, even nonprofit organizations are charged fees by banks and credit cards to process donations. We recommend giving in whichever way is most convenient for you. Checks are the least expensive to process. If you would like to help cover the cost of transaction fees for an online gift, that option is available when you are making your gift.

What is your refund policy?

Donations via electronic means (credit card, debit card, or EFT) may be refunded in the form of the original payment if the donor makes a request within 24 hours of the donation processing. Requests must be sent via email to [email protected]. Donations by any other means (cash, check, gift-in-kind, etc.) are final and will not be refunded.

I made a donation by mistake/I don’t recognize this donation. What should I do?

Please contact our Donor Services Team rather than submitting a dispute with your bank or credit card company. CURE is charged a fee for every dispute filed against us, so we would prefer to help resolve any issues directly.

Is there a minimum donation amount?

There is a minimum donation amount of $10 if you give on our website. Implementing this minimum was necessary to reduce the number of fraudulent donation attempts on our website.

Will I receive a receipt?

All donors will receive an annual giving statement that meets the needs of the IRS at the end of January. If you gave a gift online and provided an email address, an emailed acknowledgment will be sent. To manage costs well and reduce waste, we will only send paper acknowledgments for gifts $25 or larger. However, electronic receipts can be downloaded from our website or requested from our donor services team.

Monthly Giving Questions

How long will my monthly donation continue?

Monthly donations will continue to process until we receive a cancellation request. If you know you want to give for only one year, please indicate that in the comment box when signing up. You can also log in to your CURE account to cancel your monthly donation at any time. Our Donor Services Team can help answer any questions as well.

How do I make changes to the amount or day of my monthly donation?

You may update the amount of your monthly donation or change the day it gets processed each month by logging into your account at donors.cure.org. If you need assistance, we’re happy to help! Simply contact our Donor Services Team or call (616) 512-3104 and let us know how you’d like to change your monthly giving.

How do I pause or cancel my monthly donation?

You may pause or cancel your monthly donation by logging in to your account at donors.cure.org. If you need assistance, we’re happy to help. Simply contact our Donor Services Team or call (616) 512-3104 and let us know if you’d like to cancel or pause your monthly giving. If you plan to pause your giving, you can let us know what date you’d like to resume it.

Is my monthly donation a direct child sponsorship?

No. Your gift is pooled with other donors to sponsor a child’s surgery every month. If you would like to support a specific hospital, we can support that request. Please include that request in the comments. If you are interested in sponsoring an entire surgery, please visit our Sponsor a Surgery page.
