Donations

“I’ll get you my pretty, and your little dog too!” Talk to your favorite merchants, clients, friends, and family. Creativity and fun are key! Now is a great time to collect gift cards – re-gift ones you receive at Christmas, or donate those “extras” you received when you made gift card purchases. Remember, all the items you donate to the event or purchase at the event count toward your third source funding.

Just use the Auction Item Control Form in this packet (there are more in the office) to ask for donations. When you get a commitment, fill out the Donation Form and return it to the office so we can keep track of our growing roster of exciting items. The Donor Letter is to be left with the donor as a receipt for tax purposes.

Auction Item Ideas

  • Think of where you shop, eat, go for entertainment, or use services. Let people know that Holy Trinity has been part of the community for over 50 years providing quality Christian education with a commitment to affordability and diversity. Their support will help with our current programs and offer opportunities to build for the future.
  • Top sellers are vacation weekends, sports tickets and memorabilia, hunting and fishing trips and spa services of any kind. Other great places to ask for donations: hairdresser, dry cleaner, florist, gift shops, clothing stores, pet groomer, grocer, coffee shop, car repair and bakery. Keep a copy of the Donor Letter with you and just ask. Most people are delighted to assist their community through their customers. Remember, no item is “too small.”
  • Be creative and think of what you can do. Here are some suggestions: babysitting services with dinner provided, lawn maintenance, arts & crafts, consulting, meals for a busy household, furniture repair, holiday cards, vacation homes, pool services, or others. You can also team up with other families to do something together.
  • Restaurants are usually prepared for such requests and typically have gift certificates ready to go. While you are eating out, ask the manager to donate a certificate. These are popular auction items and are pure profit for the school. So eat and ask!
  • Get creative and donate a “Wizard of Oz” Themed Basket. The Wizard of Oz is such a fun theme, and there are so many great baskets you or a group of people could put together to donate. Or ask a business to contribute a specific item to bring your themed basket together. Attached to this packet are some Wizard of Oz themed basket ideas.

Sponsorship Levels

“The Wonderful Wizard” will not be in attendance, but some “Spectacular Sponsors” will for sure! Consider becoming a sponsor or seeing if your company has a matching funds program. You never know - check it out! Also, help identify corporate or community sponsors and let the Auction Committee assist you in securing commitments. Use the Sponsor letter, Sponsor Benefits & Levels form, and Sponsorship Commitment form in this pack to secure a sponsor.
