what you'll do
Imagine this: You’re right in the middle of an epic, finger-cramping game of Madden. You glance to your left and see Patrick Mahomes’ picture on the cover of the Madden 20 game case. You glance to your right and see... the actual Patrick Mahomes. Yes, this is your life! Pinch yourself, then get back to the game, because this may be your one chance to beat Patrick (with a controller at least). And not only will you get to play Madden 20 before anyone else, you’ll also play catch and get to know why #15 is one of the nicest guys in the league. Flights and hotel included for you and a friend!
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.

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.
*This means that for the typical campaign, from every dollar you donate, 60 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. Of the remaining 40 cents, 25 cents is typically used to pay for things like advertising, payment processing and the costs of making the campaign a success—including providing the prize. Then the last 15 cents goes to Omaze and is 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!
