Thanks to everyone who supported National Geographic Society to...
Win a Customized Land Rover Defender and $20,000
Congratulations to our winner!
what you'll get
What do you get when you mix the iconic design of a Land Rover Defender with a twist of top-of-the-line modern enhancements? Your very own, one-of-a-kind Land Rover D110… and we’ve teamed up with Alex Strohl and HIMALAYA to give you exactly that. You’ll collaborate with HIMALAYA’s world-class team to bring the Defender to the 21st century. We’re talking a custom-made chassis, LS3 Corvette V8 engine conversion swap, high-quality leather interior, custom paint job in nearly any color scheme imaginable, a state-of-the-art sound system and (somehow) even more! And while your new ride will bring you the freedom to drive pretty much anywhere you can think of, the $20,000 we’ve thrown in the back will give you the freedom to forget about your gas budget and insurance costs. We’ve even got the car’s taxes and shipping costs covered!
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.

Omaze, Inc. (“Sponsor”)
The National Geographic Society ("Charity")
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 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 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!
