What happens to the money when a campaign is not successful or when it generates more funds than needed?
How is Reach Your Potential different from commercial community funding websites?
Being a nonprofit organization, Reach Your Potential is sometimes able to negotiate a discount with a durable medical equipment manufacturer or vendor, especially if we have a long time relationship with them. This discount is usually not available to the general public and can be substantial. You won’t find commercial fundraising sites doing this.
Although it doesn’t happen often, we sometimes have a little money in our general fund. We can use the money to help a campaign reach its goal faster. Again, commercial fundraising sites do not do this.
Finally, when a campaign is successful, Reach Your Potential purchases the equipment and makes sure it is delivered and set up properly. Unlike the commercial fundraising sites, we do not give the money to the fundraiser who might use it for something else (e.g., a vacation or a new car). Thus, when you donate to Reach Your Potential, you know that your money will go for the purchase of medical equipment.
