We are the easiest way to find, fund, and follow the causes you care about, and make a social impact on your community. Users become funders by either donating directly to the cause of choice, or by buying or selling goods and services in the GoodKoz marketplace, where a portion of the proceeds goes to a specific cause. There's a whole social aspect to this interaction too. Unlike current crowdfunding platforms, where the relationship is temporary, the nonprofits on GoodKoz have an ongoing story to tell and noble work to pursue. Funders can follow their favorite causes to see where the good goes, and even experience it in their communities. There's something in it for everyone.
Whether you're buying or selling in the GoodKoz marketplace, or referring a friend to the awesome site, you're collecting Koz Points. Koz Points not only signifies your progress on GoodKoz, but are also redeemable for great prizes and donation opportunities. Prizes will be updated with current promotions, where prizes of various value, would be sponsored by companies engaging in marketing campaigns. Co-marketing and cause-related marketing campaigns would sponsor donation opportunities. For example, redeeming X amount of Koz Points sends 5 underprivaleged kids to summer camp.
The amount of good that is possible with our business model is astounding, and this fuels us towards success. Our success will be measured by the nonprofits we are able to keep open. Currenlty 1 out of 3 nonprofits stay open after 5 years. If you're an arts nonprofit, you're lucky to stay open after 1 year. GoodKoz will change this, because it must change.
