BCSA Refund Policy

Border Collie Society of America

Refund/Donation Policies


Donation Policies

Your generous contribution to the Border Collie Society of America, Inc. supports year-round programs and initiatives. As good stewards of your donations, we follow clear guidelines in processing your gifts.

Gift Policy Standards

All donations to Border Collie Society of America (“BCSA”) support the organization mission.

BCSA manages a number of fundraising initiatives with local Programs to make every donated dollar go further.  We will carefully consider the needs of the organization and will use your unrestricted gift where we determine it is most needed, so that all donations may directly and indirectly support the mission of the club. When processing each gift, we will follow documented BCSA business rules and agreements and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles standards.

BCSA will not accept any restrictions on use of donations less than $10,000; however, if you specifically request at the time of donation that funds be distributed to an accredited Program we will honor such request so long as distribution does not conflict with other BCSA policies. If BCSA cannot honor a donor’s designation request for a gift of $10,000 or more, the gift will be forwarded to the appropriate local Program or returned to the donor. Third parties to a donation may not change the original designation of a gift. BCSA may refuse any gift that does not sufficiently benefit the organization, is in conflict with the BCSA mission, puts the reputation of BCSA at risk or is prohibited by law.

Thank you for your support of the club.

Donation Refund Policy

If you have made an error in making your donation or change your mind about contributing to the BCSA, we will honor your request for a refund made within 10 days of your donation.

To request a refund, email the BCSA Treasurer at: treasurer@bordercolliesociety.com. Refunds are returned using the original method of payment. If you made your donation by credit card, your refund will be credited to that same credit card.

Membership Dues Refund Policy

There are no refunds on associate membership dues or dues paid for renewal of existing memberships.  If you make application and pay for a full membership, and your membership is denied, then the BCSA will refund the full amount of your payment.
