Acceptance of any contribution, gift or grant is at the discretion of SUPPORT SOMALIA. SUPPORT SOMALIA will not accept any gift unless it can be used or expended consistently with the purpose and mission of SUPPORT SOMALIA.
No irrevocable gift, whether outright or life-income in character, will be accepted if under any reasonable set of circumstances the gift would jeopardize the donor’s financial security.
SUPPORT SOMALIA will refrain from providing advice about the tax or other treatment of gifts and will encourage donors to seek guidance from their own professional advisers to assist them in the process of making their donation.
SUPPORT SOMALIA will accept donations of cash or publicly traded securities. Gifts of in-kind services will be accepted at the discretion of SUPPORT SOMALIA.
Certain other gifts, real property, personal property, in-kind gifts, non-liquid securities, and contributions whose sources are not transparent or whose use is restricted in some manner, must be reviewed prior to acceptance due to the special obligations raised or liabilities they may pose for SUPPORT SOMALIA.
SUPPORT SOMALIA will provide acknowledgments to donors meeting tax requirements for property received by the charity as a gift. However, except for gifts of cash and publicly traded securities, no value shall be ascribed to any receipt or other form of substantiation of a gift received by SUPPORT SOMALIA.
SUPPORT SOMALIA will respect the intent of the donor relating to gifts for restricted purposes and those relating to the desire to remain anonymous. With respect to anonymous gifts, SUPPORT SOMALIA will restrict information about the donor to only those staff members with a need to know.
SUPPORT SOMALIA will not compensate, whether through commissions, finders’ fees, or other means, any third party for directing a gift or a donor to SUPPORT SOMALIA.
ISKAASHI and SSHO are two organizations that are committed to the Somali diaspora.
SSHO supports East African migrants and refugees to find their way in Western Europe, and build a new life.
ISKAASHI supports projects of local NGOs in Somalia. Projects that make a difference in the community, that make a change in someone's life.
With the current situation in Somalia dire and worsening daily, both organizations have joined forces to act quickly and efficiently. Generating attention, reaching out to - and involving - donors, and being able to quickly provide help where it is needed most with our large and strong network.
Together we SUPPORT SOMALIA.
