Your Website for Charitable Purposes
"When I was a BeautiControl consultant, I launched an e-Fundraising program on
my website to benefit several charities. I donated 20 percent of all product orders
placed at my Web page to nonprofit groups. These groups
actually have their choice of timeline for a fundraising relationship with me (it can be up to a year
in duration which is renewable annually so I have the appropriate address at which to send contributions).
A group's board secretary/treasurer writes with information about the group and its nonprofit status.
I issue a code number (which is mentioned with my Website address in their newsletters and at meetings).
The code number is used by their members and supporters who place orders. While processing
I see the code and write the corresponding percentage in my daily records; the group receives a quarterly
donation check. I also write an annual sales and donation report before the group's annual meeting at which
time the board decides whether to continue the fundraising program.
products and short-term corporate promotions automatically allow a contribution
from the corporate office
to the WHO Foundation, which assists national applicants' projects with grant funds to help needy women
Memories, now my main business site, a donation to the National Alzheimer's
Association is made during one month each spring with each purchase of a specific limited-edition keepsake
photo album. Every autumn, I offer a similar promotion for affiliates in conjunction with their Alzheimer's
Memory Walk week.
The above charity donation programs are in addition to the 10 percent of product sales
I give weekly to my church on all product sales. I also offer varied percentages for a day's,
week's or month's total sales generated at events sponsored by nonprofit clubs and
schools. My involvement is a fun way to count my blessings and support community
