We Can Help You Raise Money For Your Cause or Charity
We exist to help raise funds for charities and causes especially those that support our heroes, and several programs by which our products can be the cornerstone to your fundraising efforts.
If you have a website of any kind, you can become a Causes & Heroes affiliate and earn 15% commissions on all completed sales referred by your website. We offer great terms through our partner Shareasale.com and a huge selection of Causes & Heroes banners, skyscrapers, squares - both static and animated and in various sizes to attract your site visitor's attention. Many of our ads are targeted for various heroes groups: military, teachers, doctors and nurses, police officers, firefighters, etc. so you can select the ad that will best appeal to your site's visitors.
All your site's visitor does is click on the Causes & Heroes ad which sends him to our web-store. There he or she need only complete a purchase. Your commissions are tracked automatically by Shareasale and your commissions are sent directly from them to you.

Wholesale Purchase Plan
We will sell you or your group any of the products displayed on our website at wholesale prices, which you then sell in your promotion. All profits made from the sale belong to you. You tell us the date for your fundraising campaign, and upon receipt of payment, we will ship the merchandise at a time and place of your choosing.
NO RISK Commission Plan
In this program , we help you to create a sales promotion plan for your group. We also provide your group with a unique "discount code" which, when entered at check-out, not only provides the buyer with a discount over our lowest posted price for an item, but also allows us to track all sales coming from your efforts. You need to merely promote Causes & Heroes to your supporters and their friends. Our program is designed with built-in incentives to help your group earn more depending its success in reaching certain sales targets. The more your group sells, the more it can earn!
Premium Incentive Plan
We have developed a unique program that is easy and profitable for many charities. The centerpiece is a stand-alone website branded as your own site but powered and managed by Causes & Heroes, that offers premium gift items to your donors as a "Thank you for" contributing to your organization. Our website is designed so that your logo and messaging can be easily inserted, The theme of the site emphasizes issues on the minds of all Americans today, and hopefully that of your organization as well: concern for our country, our communities and our families. Specifically, our program honors our troops and veterans, our police & firefighters, out teachers, healthcare workers, parents, those dealing with disease and other life challenges, etc. We assume that if your organization is interested in using our items as fundraisers, then these themes will be consistent with your mission as well. Here are some screen shots from our customizable website:

Premium Gifts Page - for Gold Level Donors
Here is a link to our template site so you can see the functionality for yourself.
Note, all donations made through our site are deposited to your account. The online donation process is secured via our SSL certificate. All you need to do is drive people to our customized website that has been rebranded as yours, via your won email campaign. If you need help with this, we have partnered with FocusTV, who can develop compelling, broadcast-quality call-to-action videos that can be inserted into your emails to your supporters. The sights and sounds of the video message will call the donor to link to our premium laden website. We think this is a very different approach and will change the donations patterns to provide better economic return to your charitable group.
Advantages of Our Premium Incentive Plan
- Ease of Execution: Ours is a turnkey solution that will require minimal work on your behalf. We will set up the program, manage it, and report back to you on our progress.
- Clean Line of Sight to Funds Collected: All donations collected via our efforts be directly deposited to your existing merchant accounts. Donations collected remain in your possession from the start. We will invoice you for our services.
- Low Fixed Costs, Very Attractive Variable Costs: There is a modest fee to launch and manage our program. Beyond that the costs are variable as you and your donors use our services.
- Generous Revenue Sharing: Our solution involves the offering of premiums to encourage donations. Our cost structure is such that gross revenues are, on average, approximately 86% of donations collected. Net revenue depends on the size of the mailing list and response patterns. Making some reasonable assumptions concerning these variables, we project a net total Return on Investment of between 65 and 70%
- Minimal Cash Outlay: Our solution relies on premium gift items from our collections to encourage donations. This means we use inventories of our existing products to provide these premiums. Thus, except for very reasonable startup fees, we will not need you to go “at risk” with large cash outlays such as would typically be needed to buy premium gift products. In this sense, we propose to act on a “drop ship” basis on your behalf.
- Brand Integrity: We will work with you to “brand” the effort as you wish. Thus your organition's brand integrity is maintained as the owners of the initiative so as to not confuse your supporters about where their funds are going.
