If your charity receives Purpose Points credited to its page, you must donate these Purpose Points to your own project and ensure your project is successfully funded in order to receive funds from Incitement. You can only pay out your Purpose Points through a successfully funded project.

In an attempt to ensure transparency to donors, project creators are not allowed to set up projects solely for the purpose of cashing out their Purpose Points. We recommend project creators to ensure total donations raised for a project do not comprise more than 10% of its own Purpose Points.

Incitement validates all projects prior to disbursing funds and may withhold disbursement of funds at any time in case of plausible violations of our Terms of Use.
