When will I be reimbursed?

The Event Director must submit ALL invoices within two weeks of the event to their portal on Pure Charity. Checks will be mailed to the Event Director on the 15th and the last day of each month depending on when expenses are uploaded to Pure Charity.


The Reimbursement Process Defined

    • Event directors will setup their fundraising page on the Pure Charity site. Once approved, they will be able to fundraise for their local event.
    • All expenses for the event must be paid for upfront. We can only provide reimbursement for receipted expenses.
    • Remember that Pure Charity retains 5% of funds raised to help cover their administrative and processing fees. We recommend that you gross up your required funds to compensate for their portion. 
  • Why 5%? Help-Portrait has partnered with Pure Charity to provide this option for our US-based events. Without their help, fundraising wouldn’t be possible.
  • Expenses and the Expense Certification form must be submitted within two (2) weeks of your event date. For legal reasons, we cannot reimburse expenses to an Event Director without the certification form.  
  • Purchases may be dated up to 3 days AFTER the date of your HELP-PORTRAIT® event to receive reimbursement.
  • All checks will be made out to the Event Director and sent to Event Director’s contact address.

By submitting the receipts, you are agreeing that you as the Event Director have certified that all materials were used or consumed at the HELP-PORTRAIT® event.
