Donating to SUGi's Project Owners: General

As a user of SUGi’s Site and/or app you ("you" or "the Supporter") are able to make your Donation at your free choice to any of the owners of a project listed by SUGi ("SUGi Project"). Following your choice of the relevant SUGi Project, your Donation will directly be transferred and credited to the SUGi's Project Owner. Donations can be made using credit and debit card and are processed by Stripe or Stripe Connect in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Transaction fees apply. Donations are subject to a minimum, that are set for each SUGi’s Project. Donations will be processed in the currency which is indicated on the Project and payment pages. If your payment card is in a different currency, conversion fees may apply, and may be charged to you by your financial institution. Donations are exclusively due to the relevant SUGi's Project Owner and SUGi LLC will not pursue Supporters for uncollected Donations. It is the responsibility of a SUGi’s Project Owner to contact any Supporters who have pledged a Donation but whose payment has failed, and to ask them to provide an alternative payment method. Donations to a campaign will be charged to your credit or debit card at the time you make your Donation. Stripe Connect Donations will be paid to the SUGi’s Project Owner’s Stripe account at anytime between 1 and 90 days starting at the time of your Donation minus SUGi’s LLC fees, payment processing fees and any VAT (where applicable).

Changes to and Cancellations of Donations

You may not cancel a Donation (even if a SUGi’s Project has reached or exceeded its fundraising target) once your Payment has been collected. If you wish to increase your support for a SUGi’s Project after your Donation has been processed, you must make a further Donation. SUGi’s Project Owners may cancel or refund a Supporter’s Donation at any time at their discretion and for any reason. They may only do this outside the SUGi LLC platform. If you disagree with how a SUGi’s Project Owner has used your Donation, you should raise this with the SUGi’s Project Owner, not with us.

Precondition: We look at this service as an opportunity to create demand for jungle species. It will ensure that 'real' forests keep getting created, as opposed to random selection and dense plantation.

Your trust will help us achieve the best quality of forest creation, perfectly researched, planned and implemented.

Online Training

We are privileged to be living in a country with such amazing diversity of native flora. It is unfortunate and ironic that the total number of native species being planted across the country is less than 100. We are on a mission to make all our indigenous species a part of our forest creation projects.Over the past 10 years we have developed a robust supply of forest species. A real forest creation project starts in the jungle with identification of native species, seed collection from mother trees, using best possible germination techniques in a nursery, and then planting the same seedlings in our projects. We would like all forest creators to follow the same path.

We are opening our supplies for everyone to help us bring back our lost forests.
