Q - How can I work with eCause as an individual?
A - Individuals can set up an on-line campaign with us like any other group or organization and you PROMOTE and send people to your personalized campaign page to buy your chosen products. When your campaign closes we would send your products to you for distribution as well as the check for your charity. Alternately you can place an order with us for product that you would like to sell to raise your funds. You would buy the product up front for less, and then you would sell them for the regular price, the difference would be the portion you would donate to charity.
Q - I want to help my company become a little "greener", we often support charities, can we work with eCause?
A - Many companies work hard to support the environment and charities themselves. They likely have what is known as a Corporate Social Responsibility Policy. Partnering with companies such as these make fundraising even better, because not only is health, environment and charity benefitting, but corporations and their empoloyees are given the opportunity to put their missions and plans into action. Corporate gifting around the holidays is an ideal time to work with eCause. Employee and client gifts can match your mission, and for added benefit, many items can be branded with your corporate logo, and then the quality Earth-friendly gift doubles as a marketing tool, keeping your company at the forefront of your clients's minds.
