uContribute.net Boosts Charity Revenue as Contributions Decline
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 12 — uContribute.net allows consumers to make everyday online purchases through its Internet website and donate to their favorite charity at the same time, without spending any additional money. "It's a win-win situation," says Vice President of Client Relations Troy Wilson. "Consumers just make their regular purchases through our site, and the Charity of their choice makes a percentage of that purchase. Having affiliated with every major retailer on the Internet, and with many retailers providing exclusive discounts to consumers who shop through their site, uContribute.net has had an overwhelming response from non-profits seeking a share of the 200 Billion dollars in annual online sales."
Not all online purchases are subject to sales tax and as many consumers continue switching to online shopping as a way to save money, nonprofits could benefit greatly. "At this point, saving any money is a high priority, why pay sales tax if you don't have to? It's a great way to stretch decreasing household budgets, at the same time those who don't have extra money to support their favorite charity can do it without spending any additional money," says Michael O'Brien, Chief Executive Officer.
uContribute.net is currently submitting a patent for its "Direct Donor Technology" which allows non-profits to market to their supporters professionally, for free, and completely confidentially. "As a non-profit, you don't want to release donor information when there is a possibility that that information could harm your reputation, or be spammed; our technology prevents that possibility," says Robert Albrecht, Chief Technology Officer.
uContribute.net is currently the only company that raises funds for nonprofits and provides them with up to 75% of the revenue raised for their cause. "Our mission is to operate with the lowest possible overhead so that we can provide the highest return on revenue to nonprofits," says Michael O'Brien. "We founded this company so that in these dire times we could assist the nonprofits who where helping those in need; we have not seen these economic conditions in our generation," says O'Brien.
If a non-profit has 500,000 supporters, they can easily increase their quarterly revenue by $120,000, and for many that means the difference between many in need receiving the support they need versus being turned away. "While it's clear we can expect a decline in online sales in 2009 when supporters shop through our website, at no additional costs, nonprofits will still experience a significant benefit," says O'Brien.
"Most of us simply can't contribute to our favorite charities at the levels we have before," says O'Brien. "However, I'm still making online purchases and if I can contribute to my charity while doing so, I'm going too. There is simply no reason not too, in as little as one click I can contribute to my charity ... why wouldn't I?" says O'Brien.
"uContribute.net will be introducing even more ways for nonprofits to raise money in the next six months," says Albrecht. "It is essential that these charities continue to be able to provide assistance to those in need during these economic conditions. We're dedicated to providing innovative resources so they may continue to do so." Where will you be making your purchases from now on?
