It is important that our partners can take pride in participating in a cause-related marketing promotion that supports MAC’s mission to stop drunk driving, serve victims/survivors and prevent underage drinking. Typically, promotions benefiting MAC are structured using the guidelines below:
Guaranteed minimum donation (such as $25,000 – $100,000). This will vary depending on several factors:
Per product donation is accrued against the guaranteed minimum donation. At least 10% of the retail price or 15% of the wholesale price.
Example: During the month of March, the ABC company is going to sell a $10 shirt and donate to MAC $1.00 (or 10% of the retail price) from the sale of each shirt. The ABC company has guaranteed that it will raise a minimum of $25,000, regards of how many shirts are sold.
If the ABC company does not sell all 25,000 shirts before the promotion ends, the ABC company is still contractually required to pay the full guaranteed donation amount. MAC requires a portion of the guaranteed minimum donation at signing of the contract. Subsequent donations are required at least quarterly.

Cause-related marketing promotions that benefit MAC are regulated by the Better Business Bureau Giving Alliance Standards for Charity Accountability as well as by applicable state commercial co-venture laws. These regulations require full disclosure to the consumer regarding the benefit to the charity when donations are raised through a consumer purchase on all packaging, advertising and promotional materials in clear and unambiguous terms.
