CoupFund Retailers Join Forces with Little City as a Preferred Nonprofit Partner


CoupFund, a daily deal site for nonprofits and merchants, is partnering with leading nonprofit Little City and six merchanges to drive sales for the merchants and fund raising for Little City.

Chicago, IL (I-Newswire) September 24, 2012 - CoupFund, a Chicago-based daily deal and online couponing company, announced today an exclusive partnership with Little City Foundation, an organization that helps children and adults with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities live fulfilling lives. Five restaurants using CoupFund's daily deal have chosen Little City to be their nonprofit entity, including Eshticken, HD Fitness, La Tosca Ristorante Italiana & Pizzeria, Photos Hotdogs and Wah-Moy.

"We are pleased that these local businesses chose Little City to be the preferred nonprofit for their daily deals," said Little City Executive Director Shawn E. Jeffers. "CoupFund has taken the daily deal concept to new heights with a twist that incorporates the value of cause related marketing. We look to further our relationship with CoupFund's daily deal vendors."

For more than 50 years, Little City has developed innovative and personalized programs to fully assist and empower children and adults with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities. Little City's main therapeutic, 56-acre campus is based in Palatine, with 15 group homes in the surrounding neighborhoods and a foster care and adoption office in Chicago.

"We can't tell you how happy we are that our daily deal restaurants saw fit to choose Little City to be the nonprofit in their deals," said Bill Gibson, COO of CoupFund. "We are seeing many nonprofits looking to find new and innovative ways to drive fundraising in a very difficult economic climate. We think CoupFund has an answer."

Among the restaurants participating with Little City on deals are:

• Eshticken Pizza - Home of the zero carb crust based in Hoffman Estates, Ill.

• HD Fitness - Brand new fitness center with state-of-the-art facilities in Hoffman Estates, Ill.

• La Tosca Ristorante Italiana & Pizzeria - Fine Italian dining with generations-old recipes for familiar Italian favorites in Villa Park, Ill.

Through the CoupFund model, businesses donate a number of items to nonprofit organizations that in turn sell them as daily deals on CoupFund's website. Consumers buy coupons on CoupFund's website at discounts off the retail price and also have the option to donate to the nonprofit organization directly. The businesses that are selling the coupons receive charitable donation acknowledgement letters from the nonprofit organization to be used for tax deduction purposes as well as receiving new customers through the coupons issued. The nonprofit organizations receive funding from a portion of the proceeds of the coupon sales as well as receiving awareness for their cause.
