Is there a catch?

THERE'S NO CATCH.  And, there aren't any costs charged to your nonprofit.
We created the GIVE-BACK Charitable Donation Program to assist nonprofits fund their missions.  We realized that we could create an economic bridge between for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations by simply creating an opportunity (and web site) for a consumer to find, interview and hire a local for-profit company willing to donate to a local nonprofit.  If a consumer decides to hire one or more of the Companies GIVING-BACK for a product or service they want, need and otherwise would have purchased, then a GIVE-BACK donation opportunity is created.  The GIVE-BACK donation is only created when a consumer hires one or more of the Companies GIVING-BACK.  During the hiring process, the consumer can choose to designate that company's GIVE-BACK donation to any Participating Nonprofit on this site. The amount and type of the GIVE-BACK donation is disclosed on the company's profile page on this site. There's no obligations for a consumer to hire any company on this web site, but unless they do hire one or more, then there is no designated donation to a nonprofit. 
A for-profit company donates a portion of their income from the fee charged the consumer for the product or service.  Because we encourage all consumers interview companies on this web site just as they would any others not participating in this program, it is up to the consumer to decide if they want to participate in the program.  There's no arm-turning, pressure or requirement for a consumer to participate.
