In this episode you'll meet Renee Zau of DonationMatch.com.

Renee has been a franchisee of two companies, started six businesses, managed regional marketing for a franchise co-op, and personally mentored over 100 business owners before partnering with husband Darryl to launch DonationMatch.

Having volunteered with over 50 charity events since 2001, Renee enjoyed the excitement around donated prizes in silent auctions, raffles, and gift bags. However, she was frustrated by the time and energy wasted soliciting prizes one at time and entering data into spreadsheets, especially when multiple schools and organizations handled the same items. She also knew that choosing where to distribute products would be easier for companies if verifying applicants, collecting key information (ticket price, estimated attendance, and attendee demographics), and record-keeping were centralized and automatic. With these desires, DonationMatch was born as a win-win solution for schools, charities, and the companies who serve their communities.
