WHAT WILL MY DONATION BE SPENT ON?
Monthly contributions made through this webpage will only be used to pay for the direct costs related to building new partnerships in the field. This allows us to provide each new organization with two OpenSockets at no cost to them. These two devices help them to learn how to use the OpenSocket in their clinics, and opens the door to many new patients receiving devices.
We will only use monthly contributions through this campaign for:
- Raw materials and production costs for OpenSockets to be given to new partners.
- Cost of shipping the OpenSockets to new organizations
- Cost of training materials (printed manuals when necessary)
- Cost of transportation for Bump team members who need to travel to meet new organizations. (Note that we only travel to meet new field organizations when it is absolutely necessary. We try to do most training and networking through email, skype, and phone calls.
We will not use any contributions from this monthly campaign for things like:
- Salary of staff members
- Costs of web services (website, dropbox, etc.)
We created the monthly option because we found that many busy donors wanted an easy way to break up their yearly commitment into smaller monthly chunks. If you’d like to make a one-time donation instead, click here.
IS MY DONATION TAX-EXEMPT?
Yes, Bump is a 501(C)(3) federally recognized nonprofit organization and your donation is tax-deductible if you are a resident of the United States.
CAN I DO MORE TO HELP THE MISSION?
Yes, we are always looking to get more people involved with our mission. Feel free to contact us with your ideas of how you may be able to help.
WHAT IS THE OPENSOCKET?
The OpenSocket, a low-cost, rapid-fitting device that can make prosthetic care more affordable and accessible to patients all over the world. Learn more here.
WHY DONATE TODAY?
Right now, Bump is at an exciting turning point. We’ve started using new manufacturing systems which will allow us to produce the OpenSocket in much larger quantities. With production numbers increasing, we are ready to expand our network of partners and to make prosthetic care accessible to many, many more people!
WHAT HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR?
So far, we have distributed 74 OpenSockets in 9 countries through 20 partners. We are working to make more partners and distribute more OpenSockets every single day.
WHY MY HELP?
We’ve been fortunate to receive funding from both local and national foundations. However, like all nonprofits, our organization will require a diverse range of funding sources. As we continue to seek the support of private foundations, the contributions of donors like you are equally critical to our success.
CAN I MAKE ONE-TIME DONATION INSTEAD?
Sure! You can make a one-time donation at any time here. We ask that you consider a monthly commitment, though, because this helps us to plan future trips abroad far in advance.
HOW CAN I CANCEL MY MONTHLY CONTRIBUTION?
You can cancel your monthly donation at anytime using your personal WePay profile. After signing up, see your confirmation email for further instructions.
