Omaze is an online fundraising platform that offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences and exclusive merchandise in support of critical causes.
World changers are the charities on the ground, working tirelessly to better people’s lives; the influencers, brands and personalities that use their reach for good; and extraordinary people like you who want to make a difference, and have fun doing it.
Storytelling is built into the fabric of Omaze. A good story well told has the power to open us to new ways of thinking, give us insight into the experiences of others, and ultimately make us more connected. The more connected we are, the more impact we can make together.
That’s where technology comes in. Our model democratizes traditional auction-giving by offering everyone the chance to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience for as little as $10. Through the Omaze platform, people from more than 170 countries have donated to over 150 charities, driving new levels of awareness and raising more money for charities.
We see endless opportunities to reinvigorate the giving space and reduce friction when it comes to fundraising. There are so many organizations working to make a difference, but it’s hard for them to raise money in a continuous, sustainable way. Our goal is to make giving as fun and easy as possible, so everyone wins. You get the chance to live your dream experience, influencers support the causes they’re passionate about, and charities can spend less time fundraising, and more time making an impact.
The company offers all the resources necessary for a celebrity, athlete, or a famous person to partner up with a non-profit to deliver an online fundraising experience. The model works as eighty percent of proceeds from the auctions goes to the appointed charity, and 20 percent goes to company to cover its costs.
