Let’s get serious for minute. We’re not joking.
Comedy Kids™ is a platform that serves to inspire children to organize and carry out fundraisers for verified non-profit charities. Comedy Kids™ is not a 501(c)(3) charity nor is it a for-profit business.
Monetary donations received in connection with a Comedy Kids™ fundraiser will be directed to the non-profit organization associated with a Comedy Kids™ campaign. Money donated through ComedyKids.org is done through links to web sites that are the property and responsibility of the non-profit organizations. It is the responsibility of the non-profit organization to send out letters relating to any tax-deductible donations it receives. Comedy Kids™ does not provide tax acknowledgements and is not responsible for a donor receiving a tax acknowledgment letter.
All items in the Comedy Kids™ kit are provided to participating families at cost and are not tax-deductible. As Comedy Kids™ is not a 501(c)(3), it will not send out any tax acknowledgment letters in relation to the kits.
Comedy Kids™ is also not a for-profit business. Any excess funds from the sales or sponsorship of kits will be used to fund future kits or as donations to existing Comedy Kids™ fundraisers. Families that run Comedy Kids™ fundraisers agree to pass all donations along to certified 501(c)(3) organizations.
The Top 10 Comedy™ Kids Rules
We’re so excited that you want to have a Comedy Kids™ fundraiser! You’re going to have a super fun time and bring awareness to a worthy cause. Our moms told us we had to follow some rules when we set up our joke booth (like not tell bathroom jokes) and we need you guys to follow them, too.
When conducting a Comedy Kids™ fundraising event to benefit a non-profit charity, event organizers – kids and parents - are expected to adhere to the following guidelines. Adherence to these guidelines will help you to have a positive fundraising experience. By holding up the good Comedy Kids™' name you ensure all of the future Comedy Kids™ will receive respect and well-deserved attention. Here’s what we expect from Comedy Kids™ around the country:
- All Comedy Kids™ events must raise money for a certified, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (“Approved Charity”). In addition, Comedy Kids™ reserves the right to turn down fundraising campaigns that do not complement the mission and image of Comedy Kids™.
- All funds collected through a Comedy Kids™ event must be provided directly to the Approved Charity. It is the responsibility of each individual Comedy Kids™ campaign to ensure that all donations collected by any means other than a direct donation through the website of the Approved Charity are in fact received by the Approved Charity. Comedy Kids™ event organizer(s) shall not benefit in any way (other than goodwill) or retain any portion of event-related proceeds as personal profit or compensation for any services.
- The Comedy Kids™ name and logo may be used only with the prior written approval of Comedy Kids™. Once you receive an email confirmation that your event and charity is approved, you will be able to use the name and logo in your marketing materials as long as such marketing materials are appropriate and consistent with the mission and image of Comedy Kids™.
- It is important to disclose to anyone who makes a donation to your fundraiser that Comedy Kids™ is not itself a 501(c)(3) charity, but rather a platform providing fundraising and awareness for your Approved Charity. Comedy Kids™ does not provide tax acknowledgement letters and has no responsibility for the provision of such letters. Any tax acknowledgment letters are solely the responsibility of the Approved Charity.
- All Comedy Kids™ fundraising events shall comply fully with all relevant local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations.
- All Comedy Kids™ fundraising proceeds and associated paperwork shall be submitted to your Approved Charity within 30 days of the event date.
- Any materials received from Comedy Kids™ may not be sold, reproduced, distributed or exploited in any manner without express written approval of Comedy Kids™.
- All Comedy Kids™ event organizers agree to fully indemnify and hold harmless Comedy Kids™ and its creators, principals, founders, officers, directors, agents, successors, affiliates, heirs and assigns against any and all liability, damage, loss or expense incurred by or imposed upon them or any one of them in connection with their Comedy Kids™ event.
- Have a blast! Tell jokes, see people smile and make a difference in the world.
