“Our goal as a company is to offset the fiscal cutbacks affecting non-profits. This platform is just the first we’ll use to deliver crucial funding so they can keep their doors open and continue doing their good work,” says Frank A Spadaro
Brooklyn, New York, USA (PRWEB) January 02, 2012
Professional fundraising start-up Charideem, Inc. (http://www.charideem.org), announced its official launch with the introduction of its first online platform - Savings Through Donations (http://www.charideem.org). The daily deals site raises funds for non-profit organizations by partnering with socially conscious retailers and marketing their products and services at a discounted rate to consumers. The majority of each purchase goes directly to the non-profits represented by the company.
“Our goal as a company is to offset financial cutbacks affecting non-profits in tough economic times. The Savings Through Donations platform is just the first we’ll use to deliver crucial funding in support of their mission,” says Frank A. Spadaro, Charideem president and co-founder. “As opposed to other fundraising and deal sites, the bulk of what we raise goes directly to the charities and there is no upfront cost for them to utilize our platform. The value offered to all parties involved is endless. The consumer will receive a significant deal with popular retailers and at the same time can "give back" to a local cause. The retailer can target advertising, increase sales traffic, receive a significant tax incentive and raise their social awareness. The non-profit will receive a continuous untapped resource of funding and exposure without investing a dollar. Not to sound cliché, but it really is a win-win-win for all,” says Spadaro.
In addition to the Savings Through Donations platform, Charideem serves as a cause marketing agency who represents the nonprofits side in the corporate social responsibility world. For example, Charideem provides an extensive list of online and offline consulting services to aid non-profits in their functionality and outreach, including brand-raising, social media marketing, software and mobile solutions, grant writing, event planning, and campaign management.
“Every non-profit is unique, so we have various services in place to cater to everyone's needs. Revamped SEO tools might work effectively for one charity whereas a live auction or celebrity event works for another. Whatever the case, we will customize it,” says Charideem’s Director of Marketing Daren Loewinger. “We’re just interested in getting each charity what they need to help in hard times. Most people would agree that the value in that is priceless.”
Charideem, Inc. (http://www.charideem.org) is a fully licensed fundraising enterprise based in New York and operating throughout the United States, with online applications and offline services designed to link non-profits and socially responsible corporate donors to the public.
