5 Refund Policy

Refund Statement 

Any request for refund of contributions already donated to Harman Foundation will be considered and determined on a case-by-case basis. Refunds will be returned to the card/bank account originally debited.

If a donation is refunded, the associated tax receipt is no longer valid so it should be securely destroyed. Please note it is your responsibility to submit only correct receipts to the Australian Tax Office.

Donations and Refunds

Harman Foundation accepts all donations in good faith, including any gifts or through auctions. Whilst we understand entirely that everyone has different preferences regarding donations and that sometimes it is not convenient to give, we will not refund a donation that has been knowingly and voluntarily given to us.

  • We will refund if there is evidence that an error was made by Harman Foundation or one of our agents

  • We will refund if there is evidence that a supporter has requested a regular debit cancellation 10 days prior to the debit date, however the debits have continued

  • We may refund if there are exceptional circumstances for example evidence of supporter vulnerability

Should an error in the donation amount be detected and a request for refund made after 90 days have expired, Harman Foundation  regrets that we are unable to issue a refund.

Harman Foundation is a non-profit charity organisation and we reserve the right to deduct any bank or transaction charges for any refund processed onto the supporter.

Applying for a Refund

If you wish to apply for a refund please submit your request by providing your full name, full mailing address and phone number. Please include details of how you made the donation, the date and amount given and the circumstances justifying your request. Upon receipt we will review your application and respond within 7 business days of the outcome of your request. If the request is approved, the refunded amount will be available in your bank within 10 working days depending on your financial institute.
