Glitter Lemonade is a non-profit social welfare organization operating under Section 501c4. Donations made directly to the foundation are not tax deductible. We've chosen not to pursue 501c3 public charity status because granting to individuals is not permissibe under the 501c3 code. Our designation allows children in the Glitter Lemonade commuity to raise funds for neighbors and loved ones in need, empowering them to set philanthropic goals that can be as personal or as global as they wish. 

For those donors who require a tax deduction, Glitter Lemonade has a Collective Giving Fund within FJC, a 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit Public Charity and a Foundation of Philanthropic Funds. As such, all donations made to FJC designated for Glitter Lemonade initiatives are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by United States law. Please visit our Donate page to learn more.

Please Note: Glitter Lemonade's goal is to enable as many children as possible to become independent agents of change. While there are absolutely no upfront costs associated with hosting a fundraiser or donating your child's birthday, Glitter Lemonade collects a 10% operating fee on all donations in addition to PayPal and credit card  processing fees. Operating fees cover costs associated with developing campaigns, maintaining and hosting the site, plus other value-added services we provide to ensure Glitter Lemonade is the most accessible and kid-friendly fundraising platform available.
