Buy One Get One (BOGO) Donation
Due to the overwhelming number of requests for donations, we have adopted several new ways to help organizations. We want to help as many groups as possible, but with several requests per day it is impossible. So… we got creative.
First is BOGO. Most of the time you know someone who is going to make a cash donation to your group. With that said, you can handle it a couple of different ways. One is either have that person purchase a gift certificate on behalf of the organization and we will match the amount or your group can purchase any number of gift certificates up to $500 and we will match them. For example, for a $250 investment you get $500 in gift certificates. Makes the auction interesting and an opportunity to get a larger donation. Another example would be to purchase a Grafton Winery Gift Basket valued at $75 and get another free.
We will need your Exempt Organization’s certificate 501 (c)(3) or if you are a sub-unit of a larger organization we will need their certificate. You can bring in the certificate or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. It must be in our hands before we can proceed with the donation.
This is the fun one. Your organization can pre-arrange a night during the week to promote your fund raiser at the Grafton Winery and 10 percent of the pre-tax sales for the evening will go directly to your organization. Participating guests must bring in the flyer of the promotion and your group must provide the eligibility form 501 (c)(3) to the Grafton Winery.
It is a great opportunity to get together for the cause and have a good time, also. Everyone must eat and many people want to help you out but have limited time so make it easy for them to participate. All they have to do is eat here and your group wins.
