RPC Fundraising: Giving Tuesday, Amazon Smiles
We hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday! As we enter the holiday season, we ask you to keep in mind our end of year fundraisers.
As you know, the team pays to keep our Sedona Community Pool heated year-round. This means that we need to raise funds to cover these extra costs, or our families end up incurring extra charges. To that end, please let your friends and families know about our fundraisers.
As we go into the holiday shopping season, one of the easiest ways to raise funds for the team is to shop through Amazon Smiles. Shop at smile.amazon.com and select Sailfish Sport Project (our team nonprofit) as your charitable organization and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price at no cost to you. You can opt to have future purchases automatically included both on your web browser and on the phone app to make sure every purchase can benefit our team.
Next Tuesday, Nov. 30, we’ll be running an email & Facebook Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign. This is a good opportunity for the team, as Meta (Facebook) will match up to $8 million in funds.
A fundraising e-blast from a nonprofit headquarters will likely not raise as much as the same email forwarded by individuals to their friends asking for donations. Facebook’s secret sauce is that when friends ask friends for money on the platform, it is powerfully effective.
- Please share our Giving Tuesday Fundraiser on your wall, and with your friends.
- Send an email to contacts who are not on Facebook asking them to support the fundraiser. They can contribute directly at SailfishSportProject.org.
Thank you for your generosity and for helping us raise funds for our winter swimming season!
