While cMarket (http://www.cmarket.com), headquartered in Cambridge, MA, has helped over 300 nonprofits effectively raise money online through online charity auctions, Staples is one of the first corporations to jump on board and raise money for charity through a public online auction. Online auctions have been shown to double and even triple the amount of funds raised by nonprofit organizations versus their traditional auction proceeds, including a record-setting $110,000 winning bid for a Lance Armstrong autographed yellow jersey, auctioned recently by the Pan Massachusetts Challenge to raise funds for the Jimmy Fund.
