Open Range Alliance 501c3

ORA has nearly 45,000 monthly visitors for service K9's. Unfortunately we are not able to service all candidates. That is why we are currently pursuing a 501c3 partner program. The main arm of this program achieves 2 goals: #1 help clients achieve financing via grants and tax deductible donations; #2 keep trainers employed providing a higher quality service all year long.

Most non-profit K9 training entities put their funding into high overhead buildings, beautiful infrastructure, and staff. The industry standard cost of a 501c3 K9 to the client exceeds $24,000, with an average of only 25% coming from grants or raised funds. This means the client is still paying an for 75% of the cost.

ORA aims to make fund raising easier for 501c3 eligible clients and instead of investing funds into high overhead operations and asking trainers to volunteer, we will be paying the trainer (standard commission rates) instead.

The Open Range Alliance will be a separate entity. You will be able to provide contract work for services rendered. The client will be managed through the standard ORA platform and have the full suite of ORA tools available to them. You will have to be a Fusion IBO to be qualified and you must be certified for the appropriate task to be eligible for participation.

This project will be active by June 2021.

Your Fusion IBO funding up to $100k approved & funded the same day.

Credit scores as low as 500, all applicants welcome.
