Omaze is a privately owned internet company based in California, United States. The company raises funds for nonprofit organizations through online auctions, conducted similarly to raffles, with celebrities and brands.

History[edit]

Omaze's first raffle, featuring Peter Diamandis,[1] began on August 21, 2011, and the company was founded by Ryan Cummins and Matthew Pohlson in July 2012.[2][3][4] They got the idea for the website after Cummins and Pohlson, while in graduate school, attended a benefit hosted by Magic Johnson for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. During the benefit, a dinner with Johnson was auctioned off for US$15,000. The two could not afford to bid, and got the idea to build a website with luxury prizes, but with low-cost raffle style entry tickets.[4][5][6][7]

The website won third prize at Startup Weekend LA in August 2011.[1][2]

Omaze raised $9 million in Series A funding led by FirstMark Capital and including The Tornante Company.[7][8]

Online raffles[edit]

The company's website hosts auctions, operated in a manner similar to raffles, with celebrities and brands designed to raise money for nonprofit organizations by selling a large quantity of tickets at a low-cost.[2][3][4][6] As of July 2015, the company has offered more than 150 raffles benefitting over 100 charities with donations sent from over 160 countries.[7]

The company has worked with brands and celebrities such as:

The company's raffles have benefited nonprofits such as:

Business model[edit]

The company collects 20% of the revenue from each raffle, and donates 80% of the revenues to the designated nonprofit organization. [3][4][6]
