We are bachalaash

Our Story

We are creative problem solvers. Technologists. Product enthusiasts. Civic leaders. Optimists. When COVID-19 shutdown much of our country and our local economy, we got to work. What started as a simple way to help a historic church in downtown Chicago fundraise at the height of the COIVD-19 crisis, has grown into a solution to help business associations, Chambers of Commerce, Municipalities and Townships across the United States reinvigorate their main streets; deliver value to their members, fundraise for local projects, drive orders to local businesses, and provide their residents with the easiest way to buy great products and buy local products made and sold in their community.

What's your name?


a state of euphoria reached after achieving a long sought after goal

Our name is a playful nod to one of the favorite phrases of our founder's son, John. As a toddler, John used to smile ear to ear when he heard himself utter the phrase. He used it in moments of excitement and achievement - when locking the final puzzle piece into place or when he was able to stack one more block peacefully atop a tall tower. That's how we view our work and our platform. We’re enthusiastic about seeing our friends, colleagues and clients achieve their goals and reach their bachalaash! Our product is clean, simple, intuitive, and we're delighted to see it work for you and your community.
