Donation Refund Policy

LeTS endeavours to ensure fair and transparent processing of requests for refund of donations. LeTS expects that all donors will exercise due care and diligence while making donations. LeTS also recognises that a donation may be made erroneously or donors may change their minds.

LeTS will examine each request for refund of donation and strive to make the refund. LeTS may also seek further information / documents and the donor must co-operate in this regard.

However, LeTS is not obliged to make refunds and may, in its discretion, decline any requests for refund of donations, particularly if a tax exemption certificate has been issued.

If you would like your donation to LeTS to be refunded, please request a refund in writing or by email. This request (with all relevant details such as name, transaction id, donation amount, cheque number, date, etc) much reach LeTS within 15 days of:
