MedGift Advocacy Services, Inc. a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization,("MedGift" or "we" or "us") welcomes you to our web site (the "Website"). On this Website, MedGift makes available to you ("you" or "participant") its Internet service for private fundraising, soliciting and supplying services, funds and other general assistance to or from others (collectively, "Assistance"), along with information, software, documents, communications, files, text, graphics, publications, content, tools, forums, resources and links to other Websites (collectively referred to as the "Service").
MedGift provides an online forum for fundraising and other Assistance to individuals and other organizations that wish to advocate for health related causes and projects they care about (a "Support Page"). Each Support Page consists of a personal profile page where authorized users can post stories, photos and videos about the subject matter of the Support Page as well as receive credit card donations and other Assistance from friends, family and other third parties. Additionally, through our advanced search tools, all visitors to the Website can search through our Support Pages and choose to offer emotional, calendar, wish list and financial support to the ones that best match their philanthropic interests.
We recommend that you only meet with individuals who you personally know and trust. We provide tools that enable an organizer of a Support Page to arrange for Services which may involve direct physical meeting or interaction at your home, the home of another participant or other location. We do not supervise any of these Services or any locations at which Services may be provided, and we are not involved in any way with the actions of any participants who provide or receive Services or meet in connection with such Services. As a result, we have no control over the identity or actions of the participants who provide or receive Services or meet in connection with such Services, and we highly recommend that all participants exercise caution and good judgment when providing or receiving Services or meeting with others in connection with such Services.
We recommend that you only make financial contributions to individuals who you personally know and trust. MedGift does not verify, endorse or control any of the information on the Website nor does it investigate the accuracy of any information or requests posted on the website. Unfortunately, participants may establish a Support Page which is untruthful or fraudulent. Accordingly you should only make financial contributions to Support Pages involving individuals that you personally know. As part of the Services, MedGift facilitates the process of online donations of Assistance, both financial and otherwise, made by individuals or entities through the MedGift Service. With respect to monetary financial assistance, MedGift utilizes WePay to allow you to make contributions to a Support Page. WePay is an independent third party merchant processor. All donations that are made through WePay go directly to the Support Page's account that is set-up by the organizer of a Support Page and are nonrefundable. WePay deducts approximately 2.9% of each donation to pay for its merchant processing service. MedGift receives no compensation of any kind for facilitating this process. MedGift does encourage a small donation be made to support our mission, but this is only a suggestion and not a requirement. As a 501(c) (3), your contribution to MedGift may be eligible for a charitable income tax deduction. We don’t offer legal or tax advice and nothing you read here constitutes or should be construed as tax or legal advice.

MedGift is a web-based application providing a service to those undergoing medical or health-related hardships. Either those undergoing a hardship or a love one can setup a support page for themselves or a loved one which they can then share with their Facebook friends, twitter followers or personal email contacts. Under no circumstances does MedGift condone email spam. MedGift never users purchased, rented or other email lists to send unsolicited emails. All emails sent by the MedGift application have an unsubscribe link in the footer of the email allowing email receivers the option to opt-out of receiving further emails from MedGift. It normally takes up to 24 hours for the opt-out to take effect.
