Weekly Fundraising Success Roundup 6/18/18
We want to help better connect the DipJar community! These weekly roundups will share some of our customers' DipJar tips and best practices. Here are the most creative and successful fundraising stories from the past week:
Chambliss Center for Children
Last week, the Chambliss Center for Children hosted their Ice Cream Social. At the event, participants were invited to buy a ticket for $6 each to be able to sample all the ice cream flavors donated by vendors from around the area. The participants vote for their favorite ice cream and the winner is presented with a trophy. They set their DipJar at $6 and received $1,446 in donations with DipJar alone! The money raised goes towards building stable lives for children by way of high-quality early childhood education and 24/7 childcare, foster care, and transitional living. Katie Harbison, a representative of the organization said,
"It's always nice to have the DipJar there in case people don't have cash on them!"
The Islamic Community Center of Tempe
The Islamic Community Center of Tempe has mastered daily collections with DipJar. In the past year, they have raised nearly $30,000 with consistent daily collections. So, how do they do it? Usman Karriem, chairman at the mosque, says they are constantly experimenting with their dollar amounts. Recently, during Ramadan, Usman said they increase the dollar amounts because when there is more foot traffic, more people are willing to give, and at higher amounts! A typical day at the mosque consists of five prayer times and thus five times for dipping every day! Their donations go towards many different causes but the primary cause is Zakat (relief) which contributes to helping people in the area with financials ranging from medical bills, to rent, to food and more. Experimenting with different dollar amounts is a great way to find the "sweet spot" when taking daily collections!
