2nd Annual
Shop 4 a Cause Event

 

WhatIfWeCould and Sarah Brown of Coldwell Banker BAIN, is proud to present this fun and necessary event to provide supplies local nonprofits need all year long.

 

Our inaugural event last year featured 20 local nonprofits and over 120 supporters that produced over $20,000 in supplies.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:

1) Nonprofits will sign up below.

2) WhatIfWeCould will create and send your campaign link for the nonprofit to share with supporters in emails, social media and websites.

3) When supporters arrive at campaign page for your nonprofit, they will make a pledge to spend $100 on supplies you requested that evening.

4) Supporters will be reminded a few times prior to the event.

5) When supporters arrive, they will check in and will receive your shopping list of supplies, $10 in Dutch Bros. gift cards, sticker and some other goodies.

6) While shopping, supporters will see nonprofit representatives (optional) standing near supplies they requested, giving thanks and small talk.

7) Supporters will checkout at designated Shop 4 a Cause checkstands.

8) After checking out we’ll take their photo with shopping cart and placard with the logo of your nonprofit in front of the Shop 4 a Cause banner.

9) Supporters will then be directed to the staging area right outside the store where nonprofits can accept the product and thank supporters.

10) Nonprofits are welcome to take their product with them after the event, or for a small donation, can have their product delivered the following Monday, July 25th.

SOME IDEAS:

  • Most nonprofits have ongoing supply needs that are easy to identify, select 5-8 items with multiples of each, that adds up to approximately $110 (Fred Meyer is giving 10% off all non-food items).
  • If you don't have ongoing supply needs, try to think of items to give away to those you serve. Supporters love these kinds of opportunities, help include them in a story.
  • Share the event with your current business sponsors - they may want to make a company event around the event - then include a spotlight of their generosity in your next newsletter - we'll get you pictures to share!
