How much money do we give to charity?
How much money Click4Good® is able to give to it's charities is entirely decided on how many people shop on the Click4Good.org Shop Page with our affiliates. The more people using it, the more money will be generated. There are two reasons for that fact. The first is that the more people use our affiliates, the higher commission we'll receive from them. The second is obvious, the more people shop, the more Click4Good® can give. It's just that simple.
How much of each affiliate commission do we donate?
Each time a shopper completes a purchase using affiliate links on Click4Good®, 50% of each and every commission received from our affiliates is donated to one or among all charities options equally (depending on users choice)
To clarify, that's 50% is right off the top.
Meaning, 50% is donated to charity (or charities) before any bills, administration costs, possible fees incurred for any reason by our business are considered. There are other businesses out there that claim to give a portion of proceeds away, but only after the bills have been paid. Our business gives half of all affiliate commissions to charity - period.
Rain or shine... we believe:
BUSINESS & SOCIAL AWARENESS SHOULD COEXIST™
Remember...Here's how it works:
Shopping with our various affiliates generates commissions from each individual purchase. Those generated commissions are then sent to Click4Good® at various times throughout the year. After those commissions reach Click4Good®, they're divided into different charity categories depending on shoppers unique charity choices made after their purchase.
