Way To Raise Money

LINX2Funds is a cause-marketing affinity program created by 5LINX that allows not-for-profit and for-profit organizations with a cause to secure new financial resources to fulfill their own mission.
Linking your organization to continued financial health

LINX2Funds is a powerful fundraising and revenue generation program that doesn’t ask supporters to do anything they aren’t already doing.

Instead of asking supporters for discretionary dollars, your organization can offer members leading products and services—products they’re already buying every month—and you’ll receive one-time bonuses and/or residual income. The LINX2Funds program is powered by 5LINX, recognized nine consecutive years by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States.

LINX2Funds participants include:
  • Tax Exempt 501c3 Not for Profits
  • “Cause Based” corporations
  • Religious organizations
  • Schools and colleges
  • Civic groups & clubs
  • Charities
  • Fraternal organizations
  • Youth sports
  • And much more…

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is cause marketing?
Cause marketing refers to the cooperative efforts of a “for profit” business and non-profit organization for mutual benefit. A hallmark of corporate non-profit partnerships is that they advance both the mission of the non-profit organization and the business purpose of the company.
Who is LINX2Funds?
LINX2Funds is a subsidiary of 5LINX. 5LINX was formed in 2001 and has been on the INC. 500 Magazine list for the last four years in a row.
What are the main benefits of the LINX2Funds Program?
The LINX2Funds Program allows you to help your members, employees and supporters save money while you receive funds and residual income each month.
What products and services are included in the LINX2Funds program?
5LINX offers essential services in the telecommunications, entertainment, and wellness arenas for home and business applications. Please visit the Products section for a complete list of all products and services.
What organizations are eligible for participation in the program?
LINX2Funds prides itself in maintaining an equal opportunity approach to all marketing programs. As a directive of the 5LINX socially responsible vision, all non-profits are eligible to apply and participate. We also encourage for-profit entities to use the Cause Marketing program to earn proceeds for a community-chest fund that can continuously support community-based charities.
What benefits will our organization derive from this affinity relationship?
  1. Simplicity is a primary benefit when you compare this to traditional fundraising:
    – No inventories to distribute and monitor
    – No handling of cash
    – No purchasing requirements
    – No money goals for each supporter to meet
  2. Better products, services and pricing for your supporters, members and employees.
  3. New financial resources for your organization. A portion of the resources will be residual in nature providing a flow of income month after month.
  4. Automated reporting process eliminates administrative demands on your staff.
How many volunteers and hours of time will our organization need for this program?
We recommend a minimum committee of three people be established to work with us on the development, coordination and on-going maintenance of the fundraiser. In addition to your committee, we recommend one additional Representative for every two hundred supporters. We provide a website to help alleviate much of the burden placed on your committee. Successful implementation of LINX2Funds should require fewer hours than you currently allocate for fundraising.
What level of proceeds can our organization raise from this program?
The design of this program allows a group to be rewarded for their level of commitment. In simple terms, an aggressive committee could bring significant dollars to the table. On average, your financial reward from the LINX2Funds program should be two to four dollars per participating supporter & member every month. In addition, the linking reward to other organizations could produce another significant stream of resources each and every month.
When are proceeds paid to our organization?
Depending on the type of services selected by your supporters/members/employees & customers your organization will receive at least one check every month. A detailed summation of how your funds were generated will be available in the Virtual Office that we supply for you. These summation reports will serve as a useful tool to recognize your supporters/members/employees & customers for their efforts.
How will our group’s proceeds be computed?
The calculation of your group’s proceeds is very simple. Every product has a standard commission value (CV) and your organization receives at least 50% of that amount each month for every customer enrolled through your organization. The commission amount varies by product but normal amounts received range from $1 to $5 per service each month. The above stated range is dependent on the total number of rewards points earned by a LINX2Funds participant. We are committed to allocating the highest percentage of proceeds directly to each participating group.
What is the incentive plan for participants and how does it impact our proceeds?

LINX2Funds has created a unique incentive plan that rewards a participant for contributing to the success of its affinity program. The incentive plan is comprised of two components:

  1. The first component relates to the total number of direct supporters who have elected to use our services.
  2. The second component relates to any customers of a participant that was directly referred to LINX2Funds by your organization.For more detailed information regarding this incentive plan, please contact a 5LINX Representative in your area or send an e-mail requesting information to L2F@5LINX.com.

There is no cost to participate in the LINX2Funds Program. We provide you with a FREE website and we host it for FREE.
