3. How does What We Give help organizations to raise funds?

An organization wishing to raise funds, such as a school or church group, creates a personalized online store that gives its buyers/donors access to What We Give's 7 + million books, games, DCs and DVDs. Organizations choose their own profit (donation) rate ranging from two percent up to 35%, which is added to the price of each of those products. Once a buyer/donor purchases a product, the amount of money generated by the profit rate goes to the organization.
