Cumulative Life Giving Eligibility

Monetary donations made directly to the CREW Network Foundation by an individual are calculated into one’s cumulative life giving.

If an individual’s donation is matched by an organization, the individual also receives lifetime giving credit for the amount of the matching donation.

Unfulfilled pledges are not included; only the donations that have been actually collected are included in the individual’s cumulative lifetime giving.

Contributions for which an individual receives a benefit are excluded from cumulative lifetime giving. This includes raffle ticket purchases, auction item purchases, and any other contributions for which the individual receives a tangible benefit. Food and beverages, and attendance at CREW Network Foundation events are not included as benefits.

Contributions of items and services for chapter fundraising events, auctions or raffles are excluded from cumulative life giving calculations as it is not practically possible for CREW Network Foundation to estimate the value of items donated.
