We are most appreciative of the financial donation that you give to UWGCV. With the addition of the ability to make a donation using your credit or debit card, we realize the wisdom of having a policy in place regarding refunds.

We accept your donation on a “no refunds” basis.

We understand that there may be an occasion where, while making a donation using a credit or debit card, a mistake can occur. For example, if the submit button is accidently hit twice and a double donation is made; or if an incorrect amount is entered and a donation is made in an amount that you did not intend.

In regard to event registration, refunds are only issued in the case of cancelled events.

It is our policy to provide a refund when a mistake has occurred during the process of making the donation. You must request a refund within 30 days of making your donation via credit or debit card by calling our office at 715-834-5043 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
