This question is often asked by charities who are asking for our help. Also, people who attend the large, highly successful fundraising events we host wonder. They ask other people or just assume that we take a “Cut” of the funds raised. This assumption comes out of anger they have based on the size and scope of the event as well as how financially successful the event appears to be especially when so many of the guests are making large scale donations.
To answer this question bluntly – We DO NOT take a commission or a “Cut” of any kind. We charge a very nominal flat rate such as the venue where the event is being held. No matter how much the charity raises, our service fee NEVER changes. It does not matter if our client raises a million dollars, we are not compensated any more – just the flat rate.
People often ask “This makes no sense and is too good to be true.” The reason it makes no sense is due to unscrupulous people who require a “Cut” or a commission for helping a charity. Our company was founded on one simple rule “Charity First” plus we believe that our integrity means more than our profit. We do not believe that if someone makes a large donation for our client at a charity fundraising event, that we deserve a “Cut” of that donation. If I were the person making the donation and found out that the company or the auctioneer received a “Cut” of my donation, I would be absolutely furious and not make any donations whatsoever.
In regard to our company and services, the statement that “100% of the proceeds goes directly to the charity” is 100% true.
In the end, it’s all about ethics and morals. The right thing to do is always the right thing to do. If our clients make $50,000.00, $100,000.00 or $1,000,000.00 – our fee does not change regardless and guaranteed in writing.
Are we “Too good to be true”? We are good and what we say is true, but we are definitely not too good to be true. Just ask our 1,000’s of happy clients across the country.
In summary – No we do not charge a commission or take a “Cut” of the proceeds raised at our clients fundraising events.
