Fundraising at iGive.com

November 24th, 2009 by Tom Leave a reply »

     Our fundraising has been a little light in the past few years so now is the time to pick up the pace. Here is a small, easy way to help the group that can add up quickly & consistently. We have had an association with iGive.com for a few years now & I was just checking out some of their updates. Here is how it works in a nutshell;

     The iGive website works in simple fashion. You can go to the site igive.com, sign up with DSUSA-OC as your charity of choice…then start shopping. The partnering online stores actually kickback a percentage of the sales as long as you go through the iGive site. Even if you are simply ‘window shopping’ as long as you are using the Yahoo powered search through the iGive site they give us a penny for every search (please don’t sit there and click away….they have that figured out).

     There are over 700 online stores partnered with iGive, some big players like Best Buy, Buy.com, DELL, & Staples. They have what they call double days where online retailers will double up on their donations, some of these really add up, like FTD was kicking back 8.4%, online photo sites like Snapfish were offering 25% off holiday photo cards and are kicking back 6.4% to us. Some of these are offering double their percentage coming up on the holidays. As long as you go through the site we get the benefit, so check it out, every little bit helps.

This is a direct link to associate your online shoping with our group.
