Are donations refundable?

  The UMF gladly accepts all donations to the benefit of our Mission. We operate with no staff and have minimal expenses to collect and distribute funds. As such over 95% of funds received go directly to "encourage education" (scholarships) and "support research" (small research grants).  All donations are accepted as thoughtful, sincere, and accurate for the intended purpose. We do not provide "refunds". If necessary a donor may request a specific direction of a donation ( i.e. to education or research )
