A new breed of non-profit has emerged, and is actively beginning to dramatically leverage many factors relating to the changing winds of philanthropy online…though it’s not so obvious. A recent news item in Loudoun highlighted the Round Hill-based “paws4people(TM)” foundation, that’s been working in many venues training and providing service dogs for all kinds of purposes, from helping school kids to read, to helping comfort and soothe those in need. This local organization is building its fundraising prowess leveraging the power of online social media and Internet marketing, promoting its online charitable raffle fundraising services.

In short, charityraffles.org enables, with the core focus being continued support of the paws4people(TM) foundation interests, any other non-profit to itself refer donors, for a referral return, to an online charity raffle, with absolutely no out-of pocket expense for themselves or associated corporate sponsors. All perfectly legal, a non-profit can quickly and continually raise funds as they’re donated (monthly payments), by promoting raffle ticket sales under their own campaign. Each raffle ticket sold not only provides the donor many chances to actually win prizes, including a “grand prize” of up to $1 million, but also provides the “host” raffle organizer recurring funds that (1) are of much higher margin than most any other kind of fundraising tact, (2) support not only the host raffle organizer but all other non-profits in the “consortium”, and (3) support the Paws4People organization in a way that touches entire communities.
