Good360 reserves the right at any time to rescind or modify its Master Donation Acceptance Agreement and/or restrictions on the use/storage of donations.
We need your help! If you see a nonprofit that is potentially misusing Good360 donations or violating any of these restrictions, let us know.
That nonprofit may not realize they’re breaking the rules
They may be willfully violating Good360’s terms and conditions.
That hurts Good360 and all the nonprofits that benefit through its generous corporate donations.
Donations must be distributed to the ill, needy, or infants.
As part of our plan to protect the reputations of both Good360 and its corporate partners, Good360 has a Security Team. This team ensures that all nonprofit organizations adhere to the Master Donation Acceptance Agreement set forth by Good360.
The Security Team also investigates all allegations of product misuse, including, but not limited to, the resale of products, and the inappropriate distribution of product to nonprofit staff, volunteers, or the general public. If allegations are investigated and found to be valid, the organization may be terminated from all Good360 programs.
Donated goods should be shipped to, stored at, and distributed from, a commercial or business location.
Donations that are not distributed immediately must be stored at a commercial storage facility. Donations cannot be stored at a residence, even if the organization is based out of a residence. If an organization does not have a commercial address, they may secure a self-storage unit in the organization’s name, or space may be donated from another commercial establishment within their community. Proof of either must be provided to, and approved, by Good360.
Each organization that registers with Good360 commits to the terms of the Master Donation Acceptance Agreement. Before registering, your organization should read the Master Donation Acceptance Agreement carefully and keep a copy available to review with all new staff/volunteers to read the Master Donation Acceptance Agreement carefully and keep a copy on file for all new staff/ volunteers to read.
The Organization shall maintain accurate books and records of all Donated Goods documenting the distribution of Donated Goods and the purpose of such distribution. Your books and records shall include, but are not limited to, accurate records that reflect the total amounts received and distributed (or used) and outline the procedures the Organization uses to determine that the Donated Goods are used solely for the care of the ill, needy, or infants.
The Organization shall keep such books and records and records for at least four (4) years after the end of the year of the receipt of such Donated Goods, or for such longer period as may be required by applicable federal, state, or local tax regulations.
Upon reasonable notice, the Organization shall promptly make such records available to Good360 or Good360’s designee for inspection, audit, or copying upon Good360’s request.
Organizations working with Good360 in a disaster recovery zone are encouraged (but not required) to maintain accurate records of distribution.
Upon registering with Good360 and included during check out with each order, charities acknowledge the Master Donation Acceptance Agreement which outlines the proper use of product and record keeping required as provided above.
Charities participating with a retail partnership, receiving truckload donations and/or servicing as a community redistribution partner must acknowledge the Program Participation Agreement (PPA) prior to beginning any of these programs. This Agreement is acknowledged once upon ordering an initial retail partnership; completing the truckload application; and/or being approved to become a community redistribution partner.
As part of the PPA, Good360 requests that charities acknowledge a Quarterly Compliance Confirmation email. At the beginning of each calendar quarter, Good360 will send an electronic form for acknowledgement that an organization has completed the required record keeping in the previous quarter and it’s available upon request by Good360. This must be acknowledged to remain current and in good standing with Good360.
