Thanks to everyone who supported PATH to...
Win $100,000 to Put Toward a House Down Payment or Home Mortgage
Congratulations to our winner!
what you'll get
A home is more than a roof over your head. It’s a place you can belong, be safe and feel loved. And you just got $100,000 to help get you there! Use it on a down payment. Use it to chip away at your mortgage. Use it toward the place that’ll be a home to you and all your future memories… Like your first time walking over the threshold as a proud homeowner. Your annual birthday BBQ in the backyard. That wine stain on the carpet that refuses to come out, but reminds you of the moment your husband got down on one knee. And while we’re adding cash to your pocket, we’re taking some weight off your shoulders, too. Think of it as a large portion of your new house being, well, on the house.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
who you'll help
Omaze has teamed up with PATH, a nonprofit that works to end homelessness, to build a community hub at their downtown Los Angeles campus! Every donation to this campaign will directly help transform the existing first floor of PATH into a hub of vital support services for thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness. We’re so excited for you to join us in this life-changing project—your name will even be featured in the hub once the renovation is done!
The Omaze Community Hub will provide:
- A welcoming space and community for staff, volunteers and people in need
- A center for employment preparation to help people get back into the workforce
- Placement assistance for those in need of permanent housing
Thanks to you, this awesome organization can continue doing what they do best—whether it’s building new housing or providing services like case management, medical and mental healthcare, benefits advocacy, or employment training. PATH is working to help Californians in over 140 cities maintain housing stability, and you’re a part of that! Thank you.
stuff our lawyers want you to read
Omaze, Inc. (“Sponsor”)
All donations made in connection with a fundraising campaign are paid to Charities Aid Foundation of America (“CAFA”), an IRS-recognized, U.S. public charity whose mission is to make giving internationally and domestically safe, easy and effective for U.S. donors. CAFA prequalifies each Charity as an eligible recipient of CAFA grants. At the end of each fundraising campaign, so long as the Charity continues to qualify as an eligible recipient of CAFA grants, CAFA will make a grant to the Charity of the net proceeds of the fundraising campaign.*

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!
