COMPANY MATCHING CONTRIBUTION
Many businesses match employee charitable donations and volunteer time – find out if your company provides a matching contribution now.
One of the barriers our kids face to participate in activities like skiing, snowboarding, and backpacking is access to proper gear. Our kids depend on gear donations to enjoy the outdoors safely and comfortably. Help our kids connect with the joy of outdoor recreation by mailing or dropping off new or lightly used gear in good working condition at any of our office locations. Once received, we’ll mail you donation receipt.
Your in-kind donations help make our fundraising and program events successful. We rely on these donations for raffles and auctions to raise important funds, as well as food and drink assistance at events. Our kids light up when they receive your donations as participant awards and graduation gifts.
other ways to get involved
PEER TO PEER FUNDRAISING
Work with your network by gathering donations on Mightycause or Facebook on behalf of SOS! People want to give to those they know and trust. Share your personal connection to SOS, and help us spread the love. See this guide to start your Mightycause fundraiser today.
*Please note that Mightycause and facebook are the only authorized fundraising platforms at this time. We ask that you do not use gofundme, spotfund, or any other third party fundraiser, as we do not have active accounts with these services. For any questions, please contact Tiffanie at firstname.lastname@example.org
business or event connections
Have a buddy who owns a business and is looking for a great cause to donate to? Know a great event in your area that is looking for a nonprofit beneficiary? Let us know! We’ll follow up with them and be forever grateful for the connection. Reach out to Tiffanie at email@example.com with more information, and she’ll do the rest.
People can’t give to causes they don’t know about, so help spread the word about SOS to your network through social media, email communication, tabling at events, etc.
