Raise Funds With InsiderPages.com

Update: This fundraiser is no longer offered. From their website: “Unfortunately our Fundraiser program wrapped up in November of 2010 and we no longer offer that program. In the 3 years we ran our Fundraiser program we donated over $500,000 to charitable organizations with a large focus going to supporting breast cancer research.”


This is a great fundraiser if you already have some volunteers ready to help your group, or you have a good size e-mail list. There is no selling, no asking for donations, no minimums and no left-over candy bars with this fundraiser!

About InsiderPages.com:

The website helps you find a local business based on recommendations of others in the area: “Insider Pages was created to help people find the best local businesses through recommendations from their friends and neighbors. At InsiderPages.com, people share reviews of local businesses and find great services they can trust.”

How the fundraiser works:

Since the website’s service is based on reviews of businesses, they’re always in need of more reviews in order to create a useful service for their website visitors. Writing reviews are how your group will earn money: Your group’s members and volunteers, and their friends, families, and supporters, write online reviews of local businesses they use, such as doctors, hairstylists, home contractors, mechanics, or local restaurants. For each review they write, Insider Pages makes a donation to your organization of $1.50 for the first review of any business and $.50 for each follow-on review.

Let’s say you get 50 people to each write 10 first reviews, that would earn $750 for your group. The reviews on Insider Pages are pretty short, and writing 10 reviews wouldn’t take much time at all. According to Insider Pages, most people will write between 20 and 50 reviews for a fundraiser.

Note: Reviews of restaurant chains (McDonalds, Outback Steakhouse, KFC, etc.), gas station chains, movie theater chains and national or regional chain stores (Target, Dollar Tree, Home Depot etc.) DO NOT qualify; only truly local businesses.

The rules are pretty simple:
1. Participants have to be at least 18 years old.
2. Each fundraiser lasts three weeks.
3. You get a check in the mail for your group!


If you’re not familiar with the website, why not try it out and
search for a business in your neighborhood and read the reviews.
