Fundraising for Non-Profit Organizations is Simple With Donation Street

DonationStreet ( is a web portal that has built a virtual shopping mall to allow non-profit organizations to tap the multi-billion dollar online retail market to raise money. Jupiter Research estimates that this market will reach $117 billion in 2008. DonationStreet works with over 900 top online retailers – from Macy’s to Land’s End, REI to Gap, Moosejaw to Best Buy and Wal-Mart, to provide the ‘shopping experience’ for the non-profit supporters.

In addition, the website employs a proprietary system that searches the web for promo codes, special sales and the like, from their base of merchants. These deals are constantly updated, insuring an incentive for repeat visitors. Patrons access DSCOUPONS.COM through the non-profit organization’s website, saving the non-profit thousands of dollars in web set-up expenses. For every purchase made through the site, the non-profit receives a percentage of the sale and a portion goes to the company. This fee is paid by the online merchant.

With the online marketplace growing exponentially and the non-profit donation base declining, this is a great alternative revenue generating opportunity for non-profit organizations. DonationStreet provides the perfect incentive for people to shop online and at the same time support the charity or non-profit of their choice. The only requirement of the non-profit is to market the service to their constituency and supporters. DonationStreet has made it easy to make the portal accessible to all charities, regardless of their technical knowledge.

Once an organization has become a member, they can simply link through DonationStreet Links or the more technically sophisticated Town Banners, Today’s Coupons, et al. DonationStreet supplies all the necessary code, again simplifying the technological maintenance of the site. Another important aspect of the site, unlike similar sites, is that consumers don’t need to register to access the virtual mall.

No one likes to ask for money – even for a good cause so this is the perfect way for supports to support their causes by simply buying what they were going to buy anyway. With the economy hitting everyone so hard, charities are looking for new sources of money.
