    Is Permission Needed To Promote Nonprofit
    OneCause has supposedly got 30,000 charities that it supports via it's site and sharing commissions. My question is did they get all those to sign up or can a loyalty site just add the Red Cross or MADD etc?

    OneCause is owned by the same people that own LinkShare and they claim to have given over $200 million to the causes they support. I have seen large groups of nonprofits supported by other sites like igive.

    My effort has been so far directed at getting nonprofits to willingly opt in and it seems hard to believe that you could get 30,000 on board like that.

    Looking at their site, I don't think that they are actually working with any of the groups unless they are doing a private label page for them. I say that based on the fact that you can add your own cause. I REALLY doubt that they get permission to add most of those causes.

    I guess it would be like going door to door collecting for the March Of Dimes, but don't some charities frown on that without authorization? I'm always on the cautious side and sometimes it can be limiting.

    I think I'll make a couple of calls locally Monday to see what I can learn.
