Non-Profits go Farther With Über Trade
Non-Profit organizations (501c3s) join and trade FREE…
And can use, earn, and save trade dollars the same way for-profits can!
Receive Trade Dollars
Your donors, affiliates, and congregations can become members and send you trade dollars at any time. In addition to your donors or congregations, other member businesses who wish to donate more to your organization can do so through trade dollars. You can also earn your own trade dollars: use Über Classifieds to offer everything from the old Bible Translations the church won’t use any longer to volunteer hours or leasing unused office space for local events.
Why should I encourage my donors or congregation to use Über Trade?
This economy means cash is getting tight for everybody—and nobody is feeling the crunch quite like non-profits are. Regular donors are feeling the crunch too, and are not as quick to reach for their pockets this year.
*In 2009 the National Council of Nonprofits shared a survey of over 2,000 nonprofit organizations and reported that 58% had increased demand for their services along with escalating operating costs while 52% reported decreasing revenues to meet these higher demands and costs.
By giving your donors or congregation the option of Über Trade, they can offer additional support to your organization, creating a situation that is mutually rewarding for both you and them. Remember—all trade dollar donations are tax deductible, and Über Trade makes it easy to take advantage of the deduction by providing year-end statements which detail every donation.
Trade is a $20 billion industry! Your organization serves a vital need—can you think of any good reason not to tap in to this kind of power?

*In June 2009, Guidestar published the results of its updated online survey (2,279 useable responses) designed to gauge the effect of the downturn in the economy on the nonprofit sector.

You’re stronger as a team. Consider asking accountants, lawyers, writers, babysitters, senior drivers and other service professionals in your organization to “team up” up with you by volunteering their time instead of their money or additionally.
By trading their hours on Über Trade, you’ll get the benefit of their trade dollar—and they get the benefit of a new client they might otherwise never have had.
