We want to help better connect the DipJar community! These weekly roundups will share some of our customer’s DipJar tips and best practices. Here are the most creative and successful fundraising stories from the past week:
The North Texas Food Bank
This week, The North Texas Food Bank had their annual Empty Bowl event. At the event, they serve soups and other bowl friendly meals from 20+ north Texas restaurants. The North Texas Food Bank used four DipJars set at $250, $100, $50, and $25! All proceeds were used to fund their feeding programs. They incentivized donors with food, live, music, a chef demo, and artisan bowls with the purchase of a ticket. To help conceptualize what a dip in each jar would achieve, The North Texas Food Bank created displays which demonstrated the amount of food they could purchase with each donation! A DipJar approved technique!
Yes, The Ross Valley Schools Foundation
Yes, The Ross Valley Schools Foundation is a private nonprofit working towards providing kids in their California school district with a complete and vibrant education. They were particularly successful this week during their International Day event- a day for children to explore other cultures. They simply set their DipJar out at one of their fundraising tables and let the enthused parents make their donations. Set at $100, their jar was a hit! They said they loved how modern it made their fundraising experience, especially when people dipped just to try out the hardware! A representative from the foundation said, “We usually don’t get as many donations at events like this but with the DipJar, it was like an impulse buy for the parents!”
