Our primary goal at Vigaroo is to help small, local charities. We looked at the current state of contributions to small charities and knew that there had to be a way to help them that was easy for the charities.
We know smaller charities often struggle to gain funds. Donor contributions, events and grants are their lifeblood. Far too often, the smaller charities suffer when it comes to gaining grants and funding because they just don't have the ability to be heard. Grant writing takes a tremendous amount of time and even then, the charity must wait, in general, a long time to receive the funds while all the applications are reviewed. While all this is happening, many of the small charities are concerned with keeping the doors open and providing the services that truly make a difference in our communities. Vigaroo works with local businesses, we call Partners, which by association with Vigaroo are benevolent. A portion of the monthly fees business pays to Vigaroo for advertising and the other related Vigaroo services are donated each month to local charity. Vigaroo donates 20% of every dollar earned, every month in every local market Vigaroo is serving.
Vigaroo members (not Vigaroo employees, staff or owners) nominate and vote for local charities.
After a charity has been nominated, the charity will be notified by Vigaroo of it's nomination. If the charity desires to be part of Vigaroo it must than complete the sign up form on Vigaroo.com Completed form is processed by Vigaroo verifying the charity meets all legal standards set forth by law. We do this to make sure each charity is operating legally within the requirements of the law. Vigaroo to it's best ability will not promote any illegal charities. All forms and documentation requested must be submitted to Vigaroo and approved.
Once the charity has been approved and accepted by Vigaroo the charity will be notified of it's approved status. The approved charity can now officially notify it's donor base to go to Vigaroo.com become a member and vote for the charity. This can be done month in and month out.
Each local charity in each local city has a chance to win. The charity can only be voted for by the Vigaroo community ( vigaroo members ) If your charity gets the most votes in that local market, your charity wins the 1st place cash donation prize which is 15% of the 20% area pool - If your charity wins 2nd your cash donation prize is 3% of the 20% cash pool and if your charity wins 3rd place your cash donation is 2% of the 20% cash pool.
