who you'll help
Omaze has committed to a three-year partnership to raise funds to support the needs of USA Bobsled/Skeleton athletes as they work to achieve sustained competitive excellence in Olympic competition. Unlike most nations, US athletes do not receive any tax dollars, nor continuous government funding. USA Bobsled/Skeleton athletes depend on private donations and sponsorships to help them win on the world's stage. Your generosity will help ease the financial burdens of training and competition for US bobsled and skeleton athletes—currently the most diverse team of all Winter Olympic sports.

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 grantee that has been designated; “Designated Grantee”, as an eligible recipient of CAFA grants. At the end of each fundraising campaign, so long as the Designated Grantee continues to qualify as an eligible recipient of CAFA grants, CAFA will make a grant to the Designated Grantee of the net proceeds of the fundraising campaign.*
Omaze, Inc. ("Prize Provider")
Details: Winner will receive a BMW i8 Ultimate Sophisto Edition and $20,000 USD.
In the United States (US), the Grand Prize will be delivered with US sales tax, shipping fees, and registration fees, paid. If the winner is a US resident, Omaze will also provide 25% of the ARV, excluding any cash prize component, to the US winner to put towards any required US income taxes.
In all other countries the Grand Prize will be shipped (net of all taxes) to the nearest deliverable location, at the Winner's expense. Any applicable import duties, registration costs, or further taxes or duties of any nature due in the destination country will be the responsibility of the Winner.

Omaze reserves the right not to deliver a prize to certain countries. In such case, the winner will be required to take the cash alternative.

Winner Confirmation Process:
Within 10 business days of campaign close, we’ll use an automated random drawing process to draw a potential winner(s) for that campaign. A confirmation process, which may include a background check, will then take place to ensure the potential winner meets the legal standards required. Winner and, if applicable, their guest(s) agree to cooperate fully with Omaze in Omaze conducting any background check(s), which includes providing information requested by Omaze including, but not limited to, full legal names and addresses. If the Prize includes meeting a celebrity, meeting a public figure, or attending a special event and any background check indicates, in Omaze’s sole discretion, that the potential winner or the potential winner’s guest(s) pose a danger to or may harm the reputation of any person or entity involved in the sweepstakes, Omaze may disqualify said winner and move on to the next randomly drawn potential winner. Pending a positive outcome of the confirmation process, an Omaze representative will notify the potential winner via email and/or phone. The potential winner must respond within the time period designated in the notification, or Omaze may move on to another randomly drawn potential winner. Before confirming a potential winner as the winner, Omaze may require the potential winner to confirm their eligibility. Once that’s done, the potential winner and guest(s) must execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Omaze. If you do not execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Omaze, you will forfeit the Prize and Omaze will move on to another randomly drawn potential winner.
NO PURCHASE, PAYMENT, OR CONTRIBUTION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Contributing will not improve chances of winning. Void where prohibited.
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 designated grantee. The organizations can spend less time worrying about raising funds, and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.
*Omaze invests in securing the prizes for certain campaigns like this one, so for these, from every dollar you donate, 15 cents is retained by CAFA, all of which is then used by CAFA to make a grant to the Designated Grantee. If there are multiple Designated Grantees then grants of equal share are made to each Designated Grantee. 70 cents is typically used to actually get the prize, process payments and advertise to awesome people like you ( these campaigns require more significant marketing efforts by Omaze and do not rely (or rely to a much smaller degree) on the work and name of celebrities to help raise awareness and promote the campaign). The remaining amount of your dollar, approximately 15 cents 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 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!
