Congratulations to our winner!
what you'll do
You only live once. You deserve to drive a car that tells a story and gets you noticed. That’s where the 2019 Mercedes-AMG G 63 comes roaring in. Meet your new ride! Belovedly known as the G-Wagen (short for Geländewagen, or cross-country vehicle), this luxurious machine is one of the most powerful, most distinctive and most expensive SUVs in the world. And the 2019 model is new and improved from the ground up! Boasting the same iconic look, but with better stability, more precise steering and a roomier cabin, you’ll be able to hit the road—or head off it—with confidence. Worried about insurance? Maintenance? Or planning too many epic road trips? We’re giving you $20,000 to cover all of the above. Taxes and shipping costs for the car are included too.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.

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!
