BLOOMINGTON, IL, March 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Fundraising company Dibbee recently added young entrepreneur and Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization's National Growth & Programs Manager Michael Luchies as their Director of Marketing.
CEO Jay Ponnada was matched with Luchies through CoFoundersLab; a matchmaking site for entrepreneurs. One day after Luchies had contacted Jay through the site they met at a local coffee shop. Just a week later they had agreed in principal to add Luchies to the team as the new Director of Marketing.
"It seemed like fate, as corny as it sounds," said Luchies during an interview with CoFoundersLab.
Luchies has a strong background in marketing and entrepreneurship including a degree in entrepreneurship from Bradley University. Over the past decade he has had several notable achievements including winning the 2010 Bradley University Project Springboard Business Plan Competition that awarded him and his former business over $100,000 in cash and prizes.
Dibbee has been gaining momentum since relaunching their fundraising solution for schools and nonprofits in September of 2012. The company uses both in-person and online fundraising in an approach that does not require the fundraisers to sell a product.
The business developed out of a parent's frustration with their children's school fundraising. Not only did they have to sell items that nobody really needed or in most cases even wanted, the school would only receive 40-50% of the proceeds. With Dibbee, schools receive 90%+ with every fundraiser.
"I am very happy to be a part of Dibbee and am excited about what we are doing," said Luchies.

Dibbee is a non-product based fundraising company that helps schools, churches, and nonprofits raise more money online and in-person, while keeping more for their cause. For more information please contact us at 1-855-4-DIBBEE or email Michael@Dibbee.com.---
