Our lead sponsor Luckii has provided $10,000 for the general donation pool to be distributed across Oregon nonprofits. Nonprofits will receive a pro-rata donation based on the registrants who selected each nonprofit.
As a business, you can participate (and help your favorite local nonprofits at the same time at no cash cost to you) in any combination of the following three ways:
- Provide giveaway products, services, or gift cards (subject to our approval) which will be given away to Zoom attendees by the MC during the event.
- Promote the event to your customers. They will get a free ticket out of the deal, a chance to win prized you and your fellow businesses have donated, and, because we track the nonprofit cause selected by folks sending over registrants, you’ll be helping your chosen cause get a bigger slice of the $10,000.
- Add cash to the distribution pot of the $10,000 (this would be awesome, but we have no expectations)
An inbound landing page URL includes the charity ID for any charity we’ve added to our platform. If you would like to support a local nonprofit, please email giving at givingforward dot org and mention the nonprofit. If they are on our list, we will send you the custom URL to use in your social media, blog and email. If they are worthy of adding to the list and you are looking to make them the selected cause, we will add them up to 5 days before the event.
For example, https://goodbuzz.org/luckii-oregon-comedy/?charity=obt&referrer=harrydavid would be the URL for Harry and David if they had selected the Oregon Ballet Theatre as their chosen default cause. While the referrer field for the business isn’t necessary, it helps us understand who is helping out.
P.S. if you would like to sponsor your own event supporting national or local nonprofits you can also email us. giving at givingforward dot org
