We started 2022 expecting to process 500 requests from local nonprofits. Omicron delayed the return to in-person raffles and auctions. We will measure how long it takes to reach the goal. The sooner the better!
No Cash Donations
This Fund runs on in-kind donations like event tickets, restaurant gift cards, attraction passes, accessories, and hotel nights. Requests submitted to the Fund are only for in-kind donations (not cash).
It makes a BIG difference
Don't underestimate the value of a gift card from a popular bar or restaurant. We have seen a $50 gift card raise $500 in an Elks raffle. A small gesture can makes an enormous difference.
Generosity Gets Noticed
Brands who support local auctions consistently get noticed. They build goodwill and a network. It makes sense and it works. Out-of-pocket costs are nominal.
Return on Investment
ROI is key! We will be happy to calculate it for your business. For retail, we assume that a party redeeming a gift card in-person spends 20% more than the face value.
