Katie Souza Ministries is a U.S.-registered non-profit organization with tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. All our resources are quid pro quo gifts in appreciation for the donations received by the ministry.
Resource orders placed within our website are quid pro quo contributions, and the US Internal Revenue Service Code permits the amount you give to the ministry which exceeds the fair market value of the material(s) you receive from us to be tax-deductible. This fair market value will be shown on your receipt (where applicable) to assist you in determining the tax-deductible portion of your gift. This is applicable only for US residents.
Returns & Order Cancellations

You may return any defective item within 30 days of delivery (for US Residents) for a replacement (if stock is available) or a return of your donation, and within 60 days of delivery for donors residing outside of the US. Returns for minor cosmetic defects or damages caused by your negligence will not be accepted. If you receive any item, which you did not request, please Contact Us before you return the item.
