Charitable Emporium: Fund Raising Just Became Easier: Donations and Tax Benefits from Your On-Line Shopping


"Shop while you give. Give while your shop" is the motto at Charitable Emporium.com, Inc. The Charitable Emporium.com, Inc. web site (http://www.cecharity.com) provides a simple way for individuals to elect to make tax-deductible donations to non-profit organizations while they shop on-line.

Benefits For the Non-Profit Organization:

For the non-profit organization, the Charitable Emporium provides a new source of funds to complement existing fund raising efforts. …
