Terms of Service
TERMS OF SERVICE
Thank you for your interest in the Make it Work campaign, which consists of two projects — Make It Work and Make It Work Action Fund. Make It Work is a project of the New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity, and Make It Work Action Fund is a project of the 1630 Fund, a 501(c)(4) public charity. Both New Venture Fund and 1630 Fund (collectively, the “Funds” or “we” or “us” or “our”) incubate new and innovative public-interest projects and grant-making programs. We are glad to have you as part of our community. These Terms of Service (the “Terms“) apply to your use of the website located at www.makeitwork.org and any other website operated by us related to the Make It Work campaign (collectively, the “Site”).
