DipJar for YMCA
YMCAs across the US have been turning to DipJar to help boost their fundraising! Check out these creative use cases that have helped YMCAs bring in thousands of dollars in donations:
Licking County Family YMCA
Licking County Family YMCA held a small scale event at a local brewery to raise money to send kids to summer camp! The 70 guests were given the opportunity to watch their donation make an impact on the running tally via the DipCast screen. A dip in the $25 DipJar provided one day of summer camp to a child; the $5 DipJar was available to those who wanted to give a bit less. DipCast helped Licking County Family YMCA raise $675 (27 days of camp) at this small-scale event!
“The DipCast is so critical for this…I was able to talk to more people at this event than I ever had in my life at other events”
-Katie Monroe, Licking County Family YMCA
YMCA of the North Shore
The YMCA of the North Shore is one of the largest Ys in the country. This association is comprised of seven different YMCA locations spanning Massachusetts' North Shore. The varying needs and demographics of each of these distinct YMCA locations is the perfect match for DipJar's versatility and portability. From food tastings to kicking footballs for distance, the YMCA of the North Shore has creatively implemented DipJar into a wide variety of events!
YMCA of Pueblo
YMCA of Pueblo uses DipJar's set dollar amounts to strategically fund specific programs. At a 2018 event, they set their DipJar to $28 which is the amount needed to fund a sixth grader's membership at the Y. They raised around $1,500 at that event using DipJar, and will continue to use the power of suggested dollar amounts to raise funds for other programs with their DipJar stationed at the front desk.
