PinRaise™ launches a mobile fundraising platform. The free app is now available for Android and Apple smart phones through their associate play stores (search pinraise).
This app has the potential to revolutionize nonprofit fundraising!
The model is simple; download the free app, look for a local business, i.e. restaurant, dry cleaner, carwash or even doctors and dentists. Once a purchase has been made select one of the listed local nonprofits and enter the last 4-6 numbers of the receipt.
By doing business with the company, the user directs a donation to their favorite cause. The donation is paid by the company.
Signups have commenced in the Orange County, California community, calling on local businesses and nonprofits (the program is free to all nonprofits).
If a favorite charitable cause or business is not listed, user may nominate them on the PinRaise website http://www.PinRaise.com (there is no obligation).

The app empowers consumers to do business with local merchants willing to give back a portion of a purchase to community nonprofits.
The merchant determines the amount they wish to donate. It may be 50¢ for buying a meal deal or $200 for buying a new car. Consumers may frequent the business as often as they like as the donations are ongoing. The app also allows for the promotion of special offers only available to PinRaise app users.
As part of the program, each participating merchant receives the “Business with Heart” designation.
The app will display the participating “Business with Heart” merchants nearest the user’s current location. This identification is displayed on the area map and listed in the app’s “Around Me” tab. Businesses receive a full screen advertisement noting their phone number, directions and website.
Nonprofits have a huge opportunity to direct the buying power of their members to do business with merchants that are willing to donate to their cause.
Once a purchase has been made, the user can simply choose one of their pre-selected nonprofits and enter the last 4-6 digits of their receipt. Earned donations are automatically delivered to the nonprofit organization on a monthly basis.
It’s a huge win for both nonprofits and “Business with Heart” members. Nonprofits are empowered to generate funds on a regular and consistent basis and the business enjoys repeat and loyal business at a cost of offering a discount coupon.
All types of businesses are welcome to participate. This includes restaurants (fast food and fine dining), car washes, drycleaners, salons, spas, automotive sales and repair, and professional services. The merchant pays a low $25 monthly advertising fee to participate in the program.
All nonprofits are welcome to join, including PTAs, band boosters, social clubs, sports groups, scout organizations, churches and charities. There are no out-of-pocket expenses for the nonprofit.
