what you'll get
Smell that? That’s a freshly cooked, restaurant-quality hot meal waiting on the table for you. And you didn’t even have to shop for its ingredients or cook it, because you’ve got a personal chef! Gone are the days of making long grocery lists and forgetting the few ingredients you needed for that night’s dinner. (Forgot the onion for the French onion soup? You’re not alone.) You’ve scored $50,000 to hire your very own personal chef for one full year and will enjoy the many perks that comes with it. They’ll do the meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and even packaging/labeling of food for each week’s meals. This means not only will you eat like royalty, you’ll also have extra time to relax, bond with your family and maybe pick up a new hobby that’s definitely not cooking! Yeah—you’ve made it. (And by “it” we don’t mean the food.)
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
who you'll help
2.1 billion people lack access to clean water. GivePower is on a mission to change that. GivePower is a nonprofit that uses its renewable energy expertise to provide clean water, food security and light to communities in need around the world. GivePower has provided electricity access to more than 300,000 people in 17 countries, installed solar for light in over 2500 schools and ranger stations to help protect endangered wildlife. Now, GivePower is ready to build a Solar Water Farm to provide clean drinking water for up to 35,000 people every day in a community in need in Kenya. All donations from this important campaign will go to constructing this new system. Once finished, the Solar Water Farm will provide life-changing delivery of healthy drinking water to this community for decades to come.
Your donation makes an even bigger impact! GivePower will match the total amount of the net proceeds raised by Omaze donors on designated campaigns on a dollar for dollar basis up to a maximum of $275,000.
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.*
Omaze ("Prize Provider")

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!
