This week the San Diego based Mogl, a restaurant rewards program, launched their Mogl Fundraisers platform in conjunction with Giving Tuesday. Mogl pledged that they will match the amount of all funds donated via the platform throughout the month of December.
Conceptually, Mogl Fundraisers was built to connect local organizations like schools, charities, and sports teams with local restaurants to earn money at any time without prior coordination, or additional money out of pocket. That is, rather than having a school coordinate a fundraiser with a restaurant on one night for a small window of time, Mogl Fundraisers lets them utilize all restaurants in the Mogl network to earn donations.
From December 2 through December 31, 2014, Mogl will be matching every monetary donation generated through the Mogl Fundraisers platform. In effect, that will give organizations the opportunity to maximize their fundraising and build momentum with their efforts heading into the New Year.
“We built Mogl Fundraisers to help people easily raise money for what matters to them, by doing something we all are already doing – eating out,” says CEO and co-founder of Mogl Jon Carder. “Most parents are familiar with restaurant nights, where they get parents together to go out to eat at a particular restaurant, on a particular night, at a particular time, and raise money for their school or athletic team. We wanted to make it easy to raise money every time their supporters went out to eat.”
With every purchase made at a Mogl-partnered restaurant, users will receive a reward of between one and fifty percent of which they can choose to donate to a registered fundraiser campaign or create their own. Mogl users are also always given the option to receive the entire percentage back in their bank accounts or donate a portion to Feeding America – these options aren’t changing with the new release.
“If just one organization mobilized 100 of their friends, family members, or peers to join and participate in their fundraising campaign, it would earn an average of $1,500 per month,” says Carder. “With numbers like these, we believe the restaurant fundraising model is officially changed for the better.”
