How Does This Work?

Overview Summary

  • All charitable Causes must be screened and approved by CGF before they are eligible to receive donations. 
  • All Merchants have agreed to report leads and sales that come from the CGF website.
  • Customers are responsible for notifying CGF to direct donations to their favorite Cause.
  • Certified Associate that brought in the Merchant or the Cause are compensated based on the Merchant reports and the Cause selected for payout.
  • Causes are requested to provide a "Missions Report" to explain how funds were used to benefit their mission. 

How are sales tracked? Tracking and Accountability of Purchases

CGF Certified Associates or third-party Merchants with Affiliate Programs use affiliate codes (unique ID links) to track activities and purchases.  The affiliate link defines the ID of the source within this link; so that when a customer clicks on a Merchant or CA Associate link this automatically records the activity. Merchants are required to provide CGF with monthly reports on these activities.

In many cases (I.e., small business or service “walk-in” business) each relationship can be unique and the financial tracking mechanics behind these relationships depends greatly on each Merchants technical skill-level and online or offline tracking capabilities. This requires discovery on our part, to learn what is and what is not possible given each circumstance. Then leveraging and blending the best transaction accountability scenario with respect to our mutual capabilities.
