Welcome! We ask each chapter leader to sign the charter below so we're clear on what we at Swipe Out Hunger pledge to you and clear on what we hope for from you. We are thrilled to continue working together.
If and when this application is approved, Swipes Nonprofit will provide the following to your chapter:
1) Your chapter may be affiliated with the Swipe Out Hunger Nonprofit Organization and thus given rights to the “Swipe Out Hunger” trademark and brand with the expectation to use branding on all marketing materials, with the stipulation that all agreement terms are upheld. Failure to adhere to all agreement terms will result in revoking of trademark rights, requiring the campus organization to suspend all activities involving the “Swipe Out Hunger” title.
2) Swipes Nonprofit will draw on best practices from other chapters to provide guidance to your Founding Campus Directors, and connect you with other chapters in our network for support.
3) Swipes Nonprofit shall be responsible for counseling the Founding Campus Directors on issues that arise, including but not limited to administrative roadblocks, outreach, and expansion.
4) Swipes Non-profit shall create a page for your chapter on the www.SwipeHunger.org website to post information regarding your chapter in order to outreach to your campus community.
5) Swipes Nonprofit will provide your chapter with Swipes merchandise (shirts, hats, stickers) and marketing materials to promote morale and campus presence.
6) Swipes Nonprofit will agree to indemnify, save and hold harmless your institution’s chapter, its officers, directors, employees, and members, from and against any and all claims, actions, suits, demands, losses, damages, judgments, settlements, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses), and liabilities of every kind and character whatsoever (a "Claim"), which may arise by reason of (i) any act or omission by the Swipes nonprofit or (ii) the inaccuracy or breach of any of the covenants, representations and warranties made by Swipes Non-profit in this Agreement.
