Creating Transparency in Our Cause Marketing Campaigns

As a part of the Better Business Bureau's guidelines to protect consumers participating in cause marketing campaigns, and as a part if its commitment to transparency, DonorsChoose will outline key details about cause marketing campaigns here.

Share:

For cause marketing campaigns where a partner’s contribution relies on participants taking specific actions (like purchasing an item, voting on a website, etc.), DonorsChoose will outline key details about the campaign on our website (like the maximum dollar value of the campaign, the dates of the campaign, etc.).

DonorsChoose does this as a part of the Better Business Bureau’s guidelines to protect consumers participating in cause marketing campaigns.  Learn more.

We look forward to updating this page with new information on our cause marketing and co-venture partnerships. Stay tuned!
