Sign Up Now for a Free Shop for Good Program That Gives Nonprofits More Than AmazonSmile

With a minuscule share of overall earnings and no access to supporters’ data, it’s not surprising that many fundraisers aren’t particularly fond of AmazonSmile. But with online shopping more prevalent than ever before, the “shop for good” strategy can lend much-needed support to nonprofits that are struggling due to the COVID pandemic.

Fortunately, there’s an alternative to AmazonSmile, with the kind of benefits fundraisers expect from a program designed to fuel their mission. We’re excited to share a new shop for good program that truly rewards its nonprofit participants: Introducing ShopRaise.

Sign up for ShopRaise now (just in time for the holidays!)

It’s free to sign up and free for nonprofits and donors to participate. Register today and your nonprofit can earn between 1-10% on purchases made by your donors at over 1,700 popular retailers.

Compare ShopRaise and AmazonSmile

By participating in the ShopRaise program, your donors can raise more for your mission while shopping at the stores they know and love.

How does ShopRaise work?

When donors shop online through the ShopRaise app or with a ShopRaise browser plug-in installed, their purchases will be credited to your nonprofit.

When the retailer settles the transaction at the close of the purchase return window, ShopRaise distributes the allocation attributed from the purchase to the nonprofit.

After you receive the funds, donor and donation data can be imported to your DonorPerfect database so you can see the full value of your donors and their engagement with your organization.
