What is the PRIDE Partner Program?

The PRIDE Partner Program is an affinity, referral and giveback program that enables customers to become philanthropic partners with PRIDE Wireless in sending up to 5% of the customer’s service bill back as development funds to LGBTQ health, well-being, safety and equality nonprofits. PRIDE customers get the satisfaction of regularly giving back from their existing wireless bill, receive fabulous US-based, 24/7 customer service while not compromising on phone quality service and/or pricing.

How does PRIDE Partner Program work?

When a new customer signs up, they select a preferred PRIDE approved charity. The customer can also nominate another charity; however, only approved charities will receive development funds. At the initial sign up, $10 is captured for the charity which is combined with 2.5% of the customer’s monthly service bill – less government regulatory taxes and fees — and paid quarterly to the selected charity.

.

If a charity participates directly in referring its members and supporters as a Certified PRIDE Partner, PRIDE Wireless doubles the give back to 5%.  The charity will continue to get the service renewal as long as the customer remains current and active as a customer or until the customer chooses to designate another charity. Full reporting and visibility will be made to the non-profit partner.

Is there any cost to the charitable organizations or to customers?

No. There is no cost to the charitable organizations or to PRIDE Wireless customers as PRIDE will administer and contribute funds from its operating margins.

Do you charge any administrative fees or take any deduction from the donation amount?

No. Charities must register to receive donations and have a valid bank account to which we can route donations, but there is no charge to participate and we do not deduct any fees from the donation amount.

May customers make direct donations to charitable organizations through the PRIDE Partner Program?

Not through the program but we do allow for a Donate Now button from a Certified PRIDE Partner website landing page (http://www.pridewireless.com/your-organization).

How do I contact the PRIDE Partner Program?

To submit a question, email us at sales@pridewireless.com and a PRIDE Partner representative will get back to you.

If I do not want my organization to participate in the PRIDE Partner program, what do I do?

Email us at sales@pridewireless.com and a PRIDE Partner representative will get back to you and assist you in removing your organization from the program.

Where did you get my organization's information? What if it needs updating?

PRIDE uses research resources, such as GuideStar, as the authoritative source for publicly available charitable organization data. To modify your organization’s address or mission statement, please contact us at sales@pridewireless.com to request an update to your organization’s profile.

How do I register and receive donations for my organization?

Registering your organization is easy. To register and receive donations, you must be an official representative of an eligible organization.  Email us at sales@pridewireless.com and a PRIDE Partner representative will get back to you.

You will need to perform the following easy steps:

  • Provide us your charitable organization by name and federal EIN number.
  • Verify your email address (we recommend that you use an email address that is associated with your charitable organization and is received by more than one person).
  • Submit your organization’s bank account information.
  • Upload a copy of a voided check or bank statement to verify your organization’s bank account information.
  • Determine who is your organization administrator and backup?
  • Provide necessary artwork and content for your PRIDE Partner landing page on pridewireless.com.
What are the eligibility requirements for charitable organizations to participate?

Nonprofits must be registered and in good standing with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) to be eligible to participate. Organizations must be public charitable organizations (not private foundations) and may not be supporting organizations, unless identified specifically as a Type I, Type II, or functionally integrated Type III supporting organization. Eligible charitable organizations must also be located in one of the 50 U.S. states or the District of Columbia. PRIDE specifically seeks LGBTQ focused or majority LGBTQ organizations on a national, regional and/or local level.

.

Charitable organizations must also adhere to the PRIDE Partner Program Agreement to maintain eligibility. Charitable organizations may choose not to participate at any time. Although we aim to include only charitable organizations that are in good standing, we cannot guarantee the good standing and/or conduct of any charitable organization. For complete details, see the PRIDE Partner Program Agreement.

Why do you need an email address for my charitable organization?

We require a valid email address so that we can communicate important program information to each registered organization. From time to time we will send emails with information about your organization’s donation amounts and information about program promotions.

Can you mail our organization a donation check instead of sending an electronic funds transfer?

We do not mail donation checks due to the expense of check processing and fulfillment. We distribute donations using electronic transfer to reduce operational expenses so we can donate 100% of the funds to eligible charitable organizations.

Will customers still be able to select my charitable organization if I don’t register?

Yes. As long as your organization is listed on our website and in good standing, customers will be able to select your organization. However, no donations will be made to your organization until you complete your free registration.

What happens if another person has already registered my charitable organization and they were not authorized to do so?

If your organization has been registered by an unauthorized person please contact us at sales@pridewireless.com and a PRIDE Partner representative will get back to you.  Please remember, we will need the following:

  • Provide us your charitable organization by name and federal EIN number.
  • Verify your email address (we recommend that you use an email address that is associated with your charitable organization and is received by more than one person).
  • Submit your organization’s bank account information.
  • Upload a copy of a voided check or bank statement to verify your organization’s bank account information.
  • Determine who is your organization administrator and backup?
  • Provide necessary artwork and content for your PRIDEpartner landing page on pridewireless.com.
How does my charity receive the donations?

Each quarter, PRIDE Wireless makes donations to eligible charitable organizations by electronic funds transfer. Donations will be transferred approximately 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter. To account for product returns, a portion of the quarterly donations will be withheld until the next donation cycle, subject to any reduction due to returns from prior quarters.

What happens if we do not register our charitable organization and provide a bank account for an electronic transfer?

If you have not registered and have donations allocated to your organization, we will attempt to contact you with instructions on how to register. If you do not register your charitable organization, including providing accurate bank account information for an electronic transfer, PRIDE will still track and store donations earned in each calendar quarter.

Once you’ve registered your charitable organization, your organization will be eligible to receive in the next donation cycle all donation amounts that were previously allocated to your organization and were not subject to reallocation under the PRIDE Partner Program Agreement. Please note that donations that have been allocated to an unregistered charitable organization from customers that made their first supporting purchase more than eight full quarters ago and have not been distributed will be reallocated to other registered charitable organizations.

How much of the customers’ purchase price does PRIDE Wireless donate?

PRIDE Wireless’ standard contribution is $10 per account activation and then 2.5% of the monthly service fees – less government regulatory fees and taxes. By participating as Certified PRIDE Partner, the monthly contribution fee doubles to 5%.

The giveback is based on the actually monthly service fee collected from the customer (excluding taxes, device purchases, rebates or shipping and handling fees.)

In order to receive a donation disbursement, what is the minimum amount my organization needs to have accrued from customer purchases?

The minimum amount a charitable organization must accrue to receive a quarterly donation is $5.00. If the total donation amount due to your organization, based on the purchases by all customers who selected your charitable organization, is less than $5.00 as of the end of a given calendar quarter, PRIDE will hold the donation amounts and add them to donation amounts allocated to your organization in subsequent calendar quarters. However, if you have an accrued donation that remains below $5.00 for four consecutive quarters, PRIDE Wireless will disburse accrued donation amounts to you in the donation cycle following the fourth quarter, even if the donation amount is less than $5.00.

Can I view the amount of donations my charitable organization has received?

PRIDE Wireless will provide a monthly report via email with that information.

I registered but didn't receive a donation. What happened?

If you registered, but did not receive a donation disbursement, please check with your PRIDE Partner Program contact.
