Catalyst Inc. Terms and Conditions of Event Contribution (the “Agreement”) (United States)
- General Terms
These Terms and Conditions of Event Contribution (the “Agreement”) govern the payment for and use of: (a) event tables (each, a “Table”); and/or (b) sponsorship of an event (each, a “Sponsorship”) by the donor (“Donor”) from Catalyst Inc. (“Catalyst”) for online or in-person events, including but not limited to webinars, conferences, and dinner galas (each, an “Event”), as described in the related purchase order, invoice, prospectus, and/or webpage (each referred to herein as the “Opportunities”).
This Agreement shall be effective upon the sooner to occur of: (1) Donor agreeing to the terms of this Agreement in the Opportunities; (2) Donor’s payment of the Contribution to Catalyst, or (3) Donor attending the Event described in the Opportunities referencing this Agreement.
- Table and Sponsorship Contributions
Payment for a Table or Sponsorship is a charitable donation to Catalyst in support of Catalyst’s mission and initiatives.
Donor will pay the amount stated in the Opportunities (the “Contribution”) to provide support for Catalyst’s mission and initiatives, and Catalyst will provide Donor with the corresponding opportunities set forth in the Opportunities for the Event.
Donor must be at least 18 years old to make a Contribution. If Donor is making a Contribution on behalf of someone else, Donor represents and warrants that Donor has their consent and authority to do so.
- Tax Deductibility
Catalyst is a not-for-profit organization organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Tables are unrestricted donations and Sponsorships are restricted donations to Catalyst that are tax deductible as a charitable contribution under Section 170(a) of the Internal Revenue Code. Any value of return benefits, such as meals or Tickets, as provided on the Opportunities, in exchange for the payment of Donor are goods and services excluded from the qualified charitable tax-deductible amount in accordance with law. Donor should rely on its own tax advice regarding the treatment of payments as charitable or business expense deductions.
- Termination; Event Postponement or Cancellation
This Agreement will expire upon completion of the Event and payment of the Contribution.
In the event of Event postponement due to circumstances beyond Catalyst’s control (such as natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or public health emergencies), Catalyst will make commercially reasonable efforts to reschedule the Event or offer alternative options to Donor.
In the event that Catalyst needs to convert an in-person portion of an Event to a virtual format or cancel the Event, due to circumstances beyond Catalyst’s control (such as natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or public health emergencies), Catalyst and Donor will discuss in good faith which Opportunities will be provided to Donor, and when, so as to endeavor to promote Donor’s support for Catalyst. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it being understood that Tables and Sponsorship are primarily to provide charitable support for Catalyst and in recognition of the Opportunities, Donor’s obligations with respect to Tables and Sponsorship Contributions shall not be excused or suspended and, accordingly, Donor shall pay the full amount thereof to Catalyst.
- Liability and Disclaimer
Catalyst and its affiliates, employees, directors, or agents shall not be liable for any loss, injury, damage, or expense arising from the donation for or use of Tables or Sponsorship Opportunities, or attendance at the Event.
Catalyst does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or suitability of the information provided about the Event, including but not limited to the Event description, schedule, or speakers.
Catalyst’s obligation to provide Donor with any Opportunities related to use of Donor’s logo, trademark, tradenames, videos, websites or similar items in promotional materials or Event signage is dependent upon Donor executing Catalyst’s standard event release in a timely manner.
