ELEVATOR PITCH

CauseNetwork is a unique digital, mobile platform that generates donations for Causes, sales for Advertisers and gives Supporters a way to have impact every day.

COMPANY OVERVIEW

CauseNetwork was originally conceived with the simple goal of building a business that could generate new income for great causes who really needed help. In early 2014, we realized that there was an opportunity to have a much bigger impact.

It was clear that if we could improve the way advertisers, causes and supporters worked together, we could also build a profitable company… and increasing demand for Corporate Social Responsibility and the rise of “mobile” had opened a door. So we built a platform to do it.

CauseNetwork is a new kind of branded digital and mobile platform the provides causes with fundraising, communications, commerce, and advertising tools. We provide all this for free in exchange for being introduced to their audience.

Causes get a branded mobile app, web marketplace and browser plug-in with 1000+ retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Macy’s, Priceline and more. When their supporters shop, the stores donate a portion of each purchase to the Cause each consumer supports. Our multi-media in-app messaging gives Causes a new way to connect to supporters on mobile devices so they can generate new income without them having to add costs or hire new staff.

At its core, CauseNetwork is an advertising platform where national and local businesses can support every cause with ads and sales. The results are improved brand image, increased sales, and measurable impact by simply leveraging their customers’ support for a Cause. In short, CauseNetwork turns the power of spending and everyday activities into funding for causes and profits for us. In addition, we’ve added donation services that also make money for the Cause and profits for us – our first service allows Supporters to donate electronics. We will soon be introducing car donations to any Cause from any Supporter.

Our platform rivals or improves upon similar solutions from companies with valuations reaching into the billions of dollars. Our team has the expertise and experience to execute on our plans and our platform is fully operation and generating revenues. Management will use this round of funding to accelerate our growth and achieve our goal of becoming world’s best non-profit Advertising network.

COMPANY SLIDESHARE

TO UNDERSTAND THE REAL VALUE OF CAUSENETWORK,

you need to know that national and local Advertisers are becoming more socially conscious and active so they are spending more on “cause marketing” to leverage the credibility and trust of worthwhile causes because their customers are demanding it. We make cause marketing easy and more profitable for those Advertisers – and that’s why we can make a profit and still donate significant amounts to our Causes.

The intersection where Causes and Advertising meet is a valuable segment because there is emotion involved in a consumer’s decision to buy. Advertisers who engage in cause marketing are backed by the great credibility and trust of the Cause.

Last year, two thirds of Americans bought products and services because the merchant was “socially responsible”. We make it easy for supporters to buy those products and services from the businesses who advertise in CauseNetwork.

When consumers choose CauseNetwork, it translates into value – especially to our shareholders.
