Ideal Network is a cause-marketing platform for brands that want to be know for doing good. We combine the power of collective purchasing and the influence of social media to generate contributions from revenue being generated online. The outcome is a "win-win-win" formula, rewarding Ideal Brands, Members and Causes.
Ideal Network is also a fundraising solution that benefits nonprofit organizations and schools. In addition to offering great deals, Ideal Network directs 10%-15% of every purchase toward campaigns run by our Ideal Causes. The end result? Financial support that strengthens our schools, the environment, or funds research to help cure a disease.
There are several ways a member might choose to support a cause:
A member can only support one cause per purchase of Today's Ideal. If a cause has invited the member to participate, that organization will become their default. In most cases, members who are affiliated with a specific nonprofit will not change their cause. If a member would like to support a different cause or campaign, they can make the changes on our website. Causes can encourage members to continue supporting them with regular communication about your campaign’s progress on Ideal Network.
Ideal Network will consider supporting organizations that meet our criteria. For example, your Cause must be a U.S. based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit registered with the IRS and listed in Guidestar.org, or a school registered with the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Eligible organizations must also be non-controversial in nature and have an active fundraising program in place. For more information, please email email@example.com.
Causes are hand selected to run their campaign in support of a community project on Ideal Network. We are always looking for great nonprofits and schools to promote and support. If you know of a cause that meets our criteria listed above, we'd love to hear from them! Please have them contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Cause Inquiry".
