What is an offer?

An offer is a charitable promotion in which a business "offers" to donate a percentage of the sale price to a nonprofit. An offer works just like a coupon, expect that rather than a discount consumers get the benefit of a donation made to a cause that they care about.

Can I select the nonprofits I associate my business with?

Soon! Currently supporters from any nonprofit using our system will be able to purchase your offer. We are adding features to enable businesses to customize offerings by nonprofit.

Is getOUT4 a for profit corporation?

Yes it is, but a very special kind. We have organized getOUT4 as a benefit corporation (or B Corp). B Corps use the power of business to solve business and social problems. Click here to learn more about B Corps.

What does it cost to use getOUT4?

There are no upfront costs to using getOUT4. We are a self-service platform and as a result we are able to keep our costs very low.

A word from the founders...
I'm a Professor at RPI and have studied online marketplaces for the last ten years and more recently cause marketing. It is a lot more fun (but harder) to create markets than write about it! I'm really excited by the opportunity to help create a platform that enables nonprofits and businesses to work together more effectively.

Jason Kuruzovich
Co-founder, getOUT4

Nonprofits aligning with a business is a great way to raise money, so we started to think about ways to help this happen on a broader scale. How do we add flexibility for the consumer and ease of scheduling for the nonprofit into the mix? How do we make it easier for business to drive sales to off-peak times? That all comes together on getOUT4.
