If you are a shopper
wishing to support a cause with your next purchase through Cangive,
If you represent a cause, and would like further information about the Cangive program, please read on.
Cangive is a shopping portal that has been raising money for Canadian registered charities since 2001. We would like to invite your organization to participate in our fundraising program. We use cutting edge technology to enable your supporters to raise money for your cause simply by shopping on-line. Each time shoppers, who choose to support your organization, visit www.cangive.ca and make purchases, up to 15% of each sale will automatically benefit your cause. Your supporters will be able to raise money for your cause 24 hours a day... everyday!
Cangive has several leading online stores available to your supporters such as Canadian Tire, Chapters-Indigo, E-Bay, Amazon.ca, Dell.ca, Lands'end and Eddie Bauer to name a few. We are also continuously recruiting new merchants for our program. In addition, we are introducing services to our shopping portal such those offered by Expedia.ca and Travelocity.ca. Your supporters can book flights and hotels as well as rent automobiles, and raise money on your behalf. We have expanded to include both Canadian and American merchants to offer your supporters the greatest variety possible. This also makes it possible for individuals residing in other countries to shop to support your cause.
We have on-line marketing tools available such as our "Tell a Friend" function that will assist your supporters in recruiting their family members, friends and colleagues to shop to support your cause. There are also form letters available in our "Marketing Tools" section, which describe our program. Charitable organizations can cut and paste these letters directly into their publications to inform their existing supporting membership about the Cangive shopping portal. We ask that participating organizations place a link from their web site to Cangive.ca but this is not mandatory. Cangive.ca logo links can be accessed, along with other helpful resources, by clicking on the "Marketing Tools" button above.
Cangive offers other features that are of particular interest to national organizations such as on-line reporting which will assist your organization and supporters in keeping track of shopping and fundraising activity. These reports can be sorted by province to assist with fund distribution. Cangive will also be launching a complete French version of our site in 2007 to reach more of your supporters.
There is no cost for your organization to participate nor is there any additional cost for your supporters to shop through our portal. Shoppers pay the same price for items as they would if they had shopped directly at the merchant's store. Shoppers may become a Cangive member or shop as a guest to support your cause. Shoppers simply choose your cause, link to any merchant listed in our portal and shop as usual. We take care of the rest."
We trust you will find that our program will be a welcome addition to your fundraising efforts and look forward to contributing to your continued success in raising funds as well as awareness for your cause.
