Refund & Cancelation Policy

We are grateful for your donation and support of our organization. Donations are normally nonrefundable but in the event of an error, please contact us. Requests to cancel or change a recurring gift can be made with the nonprofit at least 2 business days before the scheduled processing date. If the request is made prior to the scheduled processing date but cannot be cancelled or changed in time, a refund will be processed accordingly. There are no additional fees to process a cancellation. Refunds are returned using the original method of payment, whenever possible. If you made your donation by credit card, your refund will be credited to that same credit card. We will confirm the details of the refund when the request has been submitted and approved. There are no additional fees to process a refund.

Our goals and objectives are based on respect and support for People, Community, and Culture. The three focus areas inherently connect and overlap as does the nonprofit's mission of giving and sharing; therefore a braid has been chosen as an element of our logo.

All gifts will be used to fund the goals and objectives of our nonprofit mission. Support provided to Wisteqn'eemit Fund can be passed on to directly benefit an intended program or special project as long as the gift meets the mission and values of the nonprofit and provides benefit to the Tribe. Examples of beneficiaries are the Nez Perce Arts Council, Nez Perce Children's Home, Tribal youth programs, Nimiipuutimt language, cultural programs, Lapwai Skate Park project, environmental preservation projects, and more. Wisteqn'eemit fund continues to look for funding opportunities to benefit the Nez Perce Tribe, as well as to accept charitable donations for specific projects benefiting Tribal members.
