Don't Just Donate. Sacrifice for a Purpose.
Donors Fall on Hard Times, Too
Although somewhat non-conventional, we "go-to-bat" to support our donors/members and increase their standard of living.
One-quarter of Americans are one paycheck away from a financial crisis: they don't have $1,000 for a car repair or hospital visit. Only a small percentage of Americans save over $100 a month.
Yet, they sacrifice to give to charity. And, the lower income-population out-gives the middle class, and in some measures, they out-give the wealthy on a percentage basis.
Who is there for them? Working 2-3 jobs diminishes a person's true and complete freedom- and is a health hazard.
People who help people and pets in need deserve a helping hand paying off debts, advancing their standard of living, and to have funds available to save.
Using Incentives and Rewards
The word business shouldn’t be a bad word in the fundraising industry. Having a business mindset is what turns ideas into impact.
Output into outcomes. Mission realized.
To fully employ the enormous power of You plus Two, and to get people's attention to donate to charity, we offer a fair and reasonable incentive from the sales of marketing tools and education. This is due in part to the immense popularity of referral systems that are now a must-have for a company to be competitive. Consumers have grown to expect a reward.
Some systems reward with a product or bonus points; yet, the programs that give cash and cash credit for a referral see a significant increase in consumer interest and participation.
To ignore a referral system within charitable giving is out-of-step with society and leaves millions, eventually billions, of dollars on-the-table.
Social experiments show clear evidence that a friend will likely do what a good friend asks of them.
Marketing expenses and salaries are inevitable for nearly all nonprofits. Nevertheless, the absence of big media buys leaves much-needed funds for the represented cause.
When asked, people say the #1 reason they give to charity is simple: because someone they trusted asked them to. All at no cost.
You plus two raises funds without costly call centers, robo-callers, email, postal mail, TV ads, and blanket canvassing of neighborhoods.
Friend-to-friend referral fundraising is an affordable and proven way to increased donations.
You plus two participants gain an education about the nonprofit sector, the specific nonprofits we donate to throughout the year, and ways to become, and the callings of, a Social Entrepreneur.
Each nonprofit has a specific cause and is an invitation to learn about its positive impact on the receivers as well as the giver.
The salary of those involved in the Fundraising sector has risen, with the median salary at more than $70,000. The range in salaries included more than $85,000 for the top earners and about $47,000 for the bottom 25 percent of fundraisers.
You plus Two is one of the most recognized, up-and-coming charity researchers in the nation. Our research and recommendations are also free. Our research is of utmost importance as 2/3 of Americans donate without doing any due diligence.
