Charity FAQ


What will Lose-Win Situation do for our charity?

To whom do our dieters’ sponsors make their checks payable?

To your charity.

When will we receive the checks?

Monthly, after the end of the calendar month.

Can sponsors pay their donations using their credit cards?

It is very advantageous for your charity to receive the credit card donations of your dieters' sponsors, especially sponsors who choose to have their cards charged automatically upon their dieter's weigh-in. However, Lose-Win Situation is not a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. Since we want all sponsor donations to qualify as being tax-deductible we do not have a merchant account. But we will be happy to process credit card donations for your charity if you create a new Authorize.net transaction gateway account that connects to your existing merchant account.

By having the participating charities pay us a percentage of the funds raised.

8%.

Why does Lose-Win Situation charge so much less than other fundraising organizations?

Many fundraising organizations keep 60%-70% of all funds raised. We think that is unconscionable. We are solely dedicated to uplift the lives of needy people supported by worthy charities and to ease their suffering. The unique and efficient fundraising model developed by Lose-Win Situation enables us to charge a very minimal percentage for our services.
