How do nonprofits and NGOs leverage Riddle's quiz maker?

Life for nonprofits sure can be tricky.

You’re passionate about your cause - the challenge is getting the word out in an increasingly crowded media landscape.

That’s a big reason we designed Riddle - to help nonprofits as diverse as Oxfam, the BBC, and the Los Angeles Public Library system to rapidly (and cost-effectively) create quizzes and other interactive content.

Oxfam engages and educates with quizzes

Worldwide anti-poverty charity Oxfam uses quizzes to turn passive web visitors into active participants.

Check out their “How much do you know where your food comes from?” quiz - 100% white-labelled, and complete with ‘sign this petition’ call to action button to turn interest into action.

Non-profits and educators save from 20% to 50% on any plan

We love helping out nonprofits.

  1. We offer 20% off our BASIC, PRO and TEAM plans.
  2. Save another 27-35% if you purchase one of our annual options (12 months, paid in advance).
  3. Our list prices already include VAT, so that's another 20% off for EU organizations. Boom!

Let's look an example:

  • Our white-labelled Pro plan would normally be 69€ a month.
  • Choosing the annual option:
  • -20€ (annual plan is 49€ a month)
  • -10€ (20% off for non-profit)
  • -8€ (VAT deduction)
  • New price: 32€ a month - 53% savings!

Many non-profits and educators try our quiz maker out for a month or two, then switch to our annual option later. We're nice and flexible that way.

Just let us know by support chat which plan you'd like - we'll create a discount code for you to use during the purchase process.
