  • Raise Money with eBay for Charity during Spotlight on Helping Animals!
  • Sit, stay, fundraise!

  • This May and June, eBay for Charity is shining a Spotlight on Helping Animals and we’re inviting your nonprofit to take the stage.
  • Spotlight on Helping Animals is an online event to raise funds and awareness for organizations caring for our animal friends.
  • Why participate?

  • Join Spotlight on Helping Animals and your nonprofit can benefit in several key ways:
  • 1. Enjoy Extra Visibility
    Starting May 1st, your organization’s name will be featured on a special list of participating nonprofits at www.ebay.com/animals
  • 2. Earn Some Green
    Raise funds around the clock and every time a listing that benefits your organization sells, you get a donation. It’s that easy.
  • 3. Attract New Donors
    New donors seem as rare as an endangered species? eBay has 276 million registered users, all of whom could be potential donors. Every listing that benefits your nonprofit features your logo and mission statement – the perfect way to spread the word about your work and attract new supporters.
