Candid's Give Back Program
Crisis Nursery is partnered with Candid Professional Services for maintenance and cleaning of the Nursery’s carpets. This local business offers a great benefit to its non-profit clients: the Candid Give Back Program.
Here’s how it works - when a customer mentions that they were referred by Crisis Nursery, the customer receives quality service and the Nursery gets 10% of the total bill. Additionally, first-time Candid customers receive one room and one piece of upholstery cleaned for FREE! Senior citizens and veterans also receive a 10% discount on all services. What a great program! Contact Candid Professional Services at 217-239-7833 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Newton's Cleaning Specialists Charity Program
Newton's Cleaning Specialists is offering a great deal to clients - when someone retains Newton's for a job of $300 or more, the client then picks an agency to donate 10% of the final bill. Crisis Nursery is on that list of agencies.
Another great service for community members and the Nursery! Check out their website at: http://www.newtonscleaning.com/ or call 417-442-1288.
Third Party Fundraiser Guidelines
A third-party fundraising event is any activity by a non-affiliated group or individual where Crisis Nursery has no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement. A third party fundraiser is an outside group or individual that wishes to hold a promotion, event, or sale to benefit Crisis Nursery.
Third party fundraisers are a great way to collect money and goods to donate to the Nursery. We are grateful for dollars raised through events – they helped us raise more than $58,000 in fiscal year 2010! Crisis Nursery encourages third party fundraisers (i.e. golf outings, marathons, sales and donations benefitting the Nursery, etc).
If you have an idea or plan for an event that will benefit Crisis Nursery, contact Special Events Coordinator Heather Wienke to discuss your idea. We ask that all events are approved by Crisis Nursery in advance. This is an important safeguard to preserving the integrity of the Crisis Nursery name and our commitment to raise the necessary funds to fulfill our mission in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Together, we will discuss your plan and provide guidance for success. Please review our Third Party Fundraiser Guidelines and Agreement. This document will need to be signed in order to move forward with your event
Because of the volume of these requests, we cannot personally participate in each event that is proposed but will provide materials for your event about Crisis Nursery and the services we provide. As a reminder - please do not move forward with your plans until you have discussed your idea for a third party fundraiser with Special Events Coordinator. Thank you for your support of Crisis Nursery.
If you are interested in organizing an event that supports Crisis Nursery, please contact Heather Wienke at 217-337-2731 or email@example.com. Thank you for your interest and support!
