what you'll get
You’ve just scored $100,000! Yeah, you read that right. One hundred. Thousand. Dollars. It’s all yours and it’s burning a hole in your pocket just waiting to be spent. While how you spend it is totally up to you, we do have one request: DREAM BIG. Maybe you’ll go back to school and get that law degree you once dreamed of. Maybe you’ll pay off a chunk of that law degree you already got. Maybe it’ll be the cushion you need to take some time off between jobs and enjoy your family. Maybe it’s the perfect amount of cash to help you switch up careers. Just imagine all the things you could do with an extra $100K on hand! The world is at your fingertips—and with the help of this $100,000, we want it to feel even closer.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.

At Omaze, we believe fundraising should be about impact, not percentages. Our model allows us, in partnership with Charities Aid Foundation America (we call them CAFA), to really make a difference and disrupt the way society traditionally thinks about charitable giving.
Here’s how it works: Omaze and CAFA work together to offer incredible prizes and experiences that anyone can potentially win. You don’t have to donate to enter, but if you do, your donation to CAFA is then used to make a charitable grant to a great cause, which we love. Omaze pays for everything that’s needed to run the sweepstakes, which means the only ones taking a chance are the entrants (you!)—not the charity. The nonprofit can spend less time worrying about raising funds, and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.
*Omaze also invests in securing the prizes for the typical Omaze Owned campaign, so for these, from every dollar you donate, 15 cents is passed directly through to CAFA, all of which is then used by CAFA to make a grant to the associated charity. If there are multiple charities, then grants of equal share are made to each charity. 70 cents is typically used to actually get the prize, process payments and advertise to awesome people like you (Omaze Owned campaigns require more marketing efforts since we can’t rely on celebrities to help spread the word). The remaining 15 cents of your dollar goes to Omaze—it’s used to cover the cost of providing and maintaining the technology and team that makes this all happen.
The result? Causes get a guaranteed grant with no risk and no overhead or investment, our lucky winners get awesome prizes, and everyone else gets to help a great cause and spread joy!
