Become a GoDabo Charity
This seems too good to be true. What’s the catch?
There is no catch. Our Pros want to meet with consumers to present their products and services and are willing to pay for the opportunity. For each completed no-obligation consultation, they pay a fee to GoDabo, from which a donation is made to charity, no purchase is required.
How much does our charity receive from each completed consultation?
Donations per completed consultation range from $15 to $75 depending on the industry. The exact donation amount is clearly displayed below the Pro’s company logo when consumers make selections.
In order for our charity to receive a donation, do supporters have to make a purchase or commitment to the Pro after the consultation?
No. We never want to force your supporters to spend money just to raise money. The donation is made after the consultation is completed and the donation claim code is submitted. Certain consultation requirements may apply.
Are there any setup fees or required costs to a charity to participate in GoDabo?
No. GoDabo is a free program to all Guidestar registered 501(c)(3) non-profit and charitable organizations. However, charity groups may order optional items such as flyers, banners and other physical promotional items from GoDabo. The cost of such items is deducted from their donation account.
Is there a limit to how much money our charity can earn from the program?
No. Donations per completed consultation range from $15 to $75. Encourage your supporters to always use GoDabo for their home improvement and personal service needs, designate your charity, and your charity will continue to benefit.
When are the donations paid to the designated charity?
Donations are paid quarterly for the previous completed and confirmed consultations.
How do we promote our GoDabo fundraiser to our supporters?
First, be sure that your organization is a registered 501(c)(3) with Guidestar. If it is not, you may register for free. Once your organization is registered, supporters can select it by clicking on the "Other Charity" link on the GoDabo homepage and entering in the complete name or EIN number for the organization. You can promote GoDabo to your supporters via email, social media postings, e-newsletters, take-home flyers, banners, events, etc. The goal is to push all of your supporters with home improvement or personal service needs to GoDabo.com to request consultations from GoDabo Pros in order to generate donations for your charity.
How long may we participate in the GoDabo fundraising program?
For as long as you like. GoDabo is a home improvement and personal service resource site that is available to consumers 24/7, 365 days per year that allows consumers to change lives with everyday choices. So long as your supporters have home improvement or personal service needs, use GoDabo, and designate your charity, you will earn money. The program can last forever.
