----

At Man Expeditions, we believe fundraising should be about impact, not percentages. Our model allows us, in partnership with Charities and Nonprofits, to really make a difference and disrupt the way society traditionally thinks about charitable giving.

Here’s how it works: Man Expeditions and various Nonprofits work together to offer incredible prizes and experiences that anyone can potentially win. To enter you will need to make a donation of any amount. Your donation is then used to fund a great cause, which we love. Man Expeditions pays for everything that’s needed to run the contest, which means the only ones taking a chance are the entrants (you!)—not the charity/Nonprofit. 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 the cause. If there are multiple charities/nonprofits, then grants of equal share are made to each. 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 Man Expeditions 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 experiences, and everyone else gets to help a great cause and spread joy!
