Date of last revision: September 27, 2021



We provide our website (“site”) and services (“services”) subject to your compliance with our Terms of Use Agreement (“agreement’). This agreement also governs the relationship between IFundWomen and you, the Site visitor (including visitors that simply browse the website without becoming a registered user) and/or member (“you”, “your”), with respect to your use of our site. If you don’t agree to our Terms of Use, then don’t use or access (or continue to use or access) this site or any of the services that we offer.

  • We reserve the sole right and discretion to modify our Terms of Use at any time. Modifications are effective immediately after we give notice of them, which we may do by revising the Date of Last Revision of our Terms of Use on the site, or by otherwise posting on the site, or by email or conventional mail, or by any other means which provides reasonable notice.
  • It is your responsibility to regularly check the site to determine if there have been changes to the Terms of Use and to review any changes. You agree that IFundWomen is not liable to you for any delay or damages that might result from any changes to the Terms of Use, if any.

  • You must be 18 years old or over to create an account on IFundWomen. Users between the ages of 13 and 17 can use the services with the consent and supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years old, provided such parent or legal guardian agrees to be bound by our Terms of Use, and agrees to be responsible for such use of our site and services.

IFundWomen is a Venue
  • IFundWomen is a crowdfunding venue for individuals and entities that are fundraising for their own campaigns, and/or to make contributions to the campaigns of others. When a campaign owner creates their campaign on IFundWomen, they’re inviting others to make a contract with them. Anyone who backs a campaign on our site accepts the campaign owner’s contract. IFundWomen is not a part of that contract between Campaign Owners and Funders. Campaign Owners can offer gifts or rewards as tangible items or intangible services (collectively, “rewards”) to funders.
  • IFundWomen makes no representation about the safety, legality, quality, or morality of any campaign or reward, or contribution or the truth or accuracy of any user content posted on the site. We also expressly do not represent that Campaign Owners will deliver any rewards promised; deliver any rewards timely; or that financial backings of any campaigns will be used by the Campaign Owner as represented by them during a campaign. We are only the venue for Campaign Owners to present their fundraising campaign(s). Users back campaigns at their own risk.
License to use IFundWomen

IFundWomen grants each user a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license (permission) to use our site and services subject to each user’s eligibility and continued compliance with our Terms of Use.

creating a crowdfunding campaign on ifundwomen
  • Crowdfunding Campaigns may be submitted for approval to IFundWomen through the site by any person 18 years or older with a verified/registered account on the site, and of any gender – we do not discriminate. Repeat: People who are at least 18 years of age and who identify as any gender are welcome on IFundWomen. A campaign will not be denied upon submission to our site for approval based on a campaign owner that does not identify their gender as a woman – denials of approval of any campaign, if any, will be based on non-discriminatory factors, and we reserve the right to communicate or not communicate with Campaign Owners the reason for any denial of those non-discriminatory factors.
  • Notwithstanding the foregoing, we created IFundWomen as a crowdfunding venue to address a market and social impact need to enhance community and support of women-led businesses seeking funds, which according to documented statistics, tend to receive substantially (if not drastically) less funding than male-led ventures under traditional venture capital fundraising circumstances.
  • Campaign Owners are solely responsible for fulfilling promises made in their campaign to funders. When a campaign is completed, the Campaign Owner must fulfill each reward. Once a creator has done so, they’ve satisfied their obligation to their funders.
  • If a Campaign Owner is unable to fulfill their rewards, they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement. To right this, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the promised reward to the best possible conclusion for funders.
  • Once a pledge is made, the charge to the funder is non-refundable via IFundWomen, however, the Campaign Owner reserves the right to refund the money directly back to the funder, through a different payment mechanism that does not reside on the IFundWomen website.
  • We will charge our fees before putting the funds in your account for any successfully completed pledge.
  • You agree, accept, and acknowledge that some financial pledges from funders can’t be collected and may reduce the amount of funding you get. For example – when a funder’s credit card expires before funding ends, and they don’t provide updated information – we can’t guarantee that the amount of funding you receive will be exactly equal to the full amount pledged minus fees.


prohibited rewards & campaigns
  • Campaigns on IFundWomen may not be created for illegal activities, to cause harm to people or property, or to scam others. It is the sole responsibility and exclusive liability of the campaign owner to comply with all applicable laws and regulations in connection with their campaigns, and not to make any false or misleading statements in connection with their campaign.
  • The following rewards are not permitted in campaigns on our site:
    • any form of “security” as defined in the Securities Act of 1933
    • any form of financial incentive or participation in any profit-sharing
    • any alcoholic consumer products
    • any controlled substance or drug paraphernalia
    • any weapons, ammunition and related accessories
    • any form of lottery or gambling
    • any form of air transportation
    • any items or services promoting hate, discrimination, death, personal injury, destruction to person or property; any items or services that are prohibited by applicable law to do, possess, or distribute; any items or services that would result in infringement or violation of another person’s rights if distributed.

IFundWomen is not a venue for disrespect, trolling, profanity, meanness, harassment, spam, abuse, or hatred.

funding or backing a campaign
  • Campaign Funders, sometimes known as Backers, are solely and exclusively responsible for asking questions and investigating campaign owners and campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before financially backing a campaign. Any backing is made 100% voluntarily and at the sole discretion of the funder.
  • IFundWomen does not guarantee that Campaign Owners will use any funds received from funders as they may have promised in their campaign; that campaign owners will timely deliver rewards; or those campaign owners will give any promised rewards at all. We also do not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, morality, or legality of any campaign, campaign owner, or campaign reward on the site.
  • IFundWomen is a Flexible Funding platform which means your credit card will be charged immediately for the pledge, and the Campaign Owner will receive their funds, less fees, on a weekly or monthly basis, pending the campaign settings that IFundWomen assigns to the Campaign Owner or the campaign settings that the Campaign Owner sets for themselves through the payment processors, Stripe and/or PayPal. IFundWomen gives funders the option to leave a tip. Tips allow IFundWomen to continue to provide free, expert crowdfunding coaching to ensure that project creators have the best chance of success. Tips are totally optional, and are non-refundable. If you decide to leave a tip, your funder receipt will show you a breakdown of your project contribution and tip amount. On your statement, this will either show up as a single combined charge or as two separate charges.
  • Estimated delivery dates of rewards set by Campaign Owners are the estimate of the Campaign Owner – not IFundWomen. Also, Campaign Owners may need to email you questions about your reward, such as your mailing address or t-shirt size. By backing a campaign, you are opting into email communications from IFundWomen, and the Campaign Owner.
disputes between campaign funders/backers & campaign owners
  • IFundWomen is under no obligation to become involved in disputes between Campaign Owners and Funders/Backers. IFundWomen is merely a venue for campaign owners. Campaign Funders/Backers voluntarily decide at their own risk to accept the fundraising terms and conditions of any Campaign Owner on our site as a contract that we are not a party to. Campaign Owners are legally bound to perform on any promise/commitment made to funders/backers.
  • Notwithstanding the foregoing, Campaign Owners in independently seeking to resolve any dispute with a funder can consider any lawful resolution including but not limited to the issuance of a refund to any funder they are in dispute with. In the event of any dispute, such as a Campaign Owner failure to fulfill a reward, we may provide the campaign owner’s contact information so that the dispute may be resolved, but we are under no obligation whatsoever to do so.

IFundWomen is not liable for any loss on the site & not responsible for monitoring any campaign

  • You expressly agree and understand that IFundWomen is not liable for damages or losses related to your use of the site and services. We don’t monitor Campaign progress or outcome to ensure that funders have had their contributions properly used by Campaign Owners, and/or that rewards to Funders/Backers are timely delivered/shipped, or delivered at all.
  • In using our services and site, you release IFundWomen from claims, damages, and demands of every kind – known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed – arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and the services. All of the content you access through the site and service is at your own risk. You’re solely responsible for any resulting damage or loss to any party.



  • It’s free to create an account on IFundWomen. When someone pledges money to your campaign, we (and our payment partner(s)) collect fees. Our partners’ fees may vary based on your location. Campaign Owners will have an opportunity to review and accept our fees before starting their campaigns. Once campaign owners start their campaigns, campaign owners are agreeing to the fees. Fees are charged in real time for “flexible funding” campaigns.
  • Our standard crowdfunding fee charge is 5% in addition to any fees from our payment processors and in addition to any optional service fees (like video production or private coaching) that the campaign owner may sign up for. Each payment provider is its own company, and IFundWomen is not responsible for its performance. Typically, payment processor fees are between 3-5%, but that can vary, and IFundWomen is not responsible for payment processor fees. By accessing our third-party payment providers, you do so at your own risk – when you back or create a campaign, you’re also agreeing to the payment processor’s terms of service, and any of their additional fees.

Campaign Owners are responsible for any taxes associated with receipt of any income fundraised through IFundWomen. Campaign Owners are also responsible for communicating any tax concerns relevant to their funders in their campaign both on and off the site.
