Is it ok to offer rewards to campaign donors?

Yes, you can give rewards to donors.  Rewards should be related to your campaign or can be promotional items such as mugs, t-shirts, or calendars.  Clearly defining your campaign, adding disclaimers to your website and marketing material will help you to launch a successful campaign.  
When offering rewards you must: 
  • List the type of rewards you’re offering in exchange for each donation amount.
  • Include a disclaimer on your campaign site and marketing material that you will make a best effort to provide the reward but delivery is not guaranteed.
Rewards that are not allowed include: 
  • Cash 
  • Gold or silver coins or bullion
  • Raffle tickets
  • Gift cards 
  • Sweepstakes 
  • A right or interest in property
Reward-based campaigns without a delivery disclaimer or with concurrent advance product sales will be considered Preselling and may be subject to payment holds.
