Shop for a Cause - A Domestic Violence Awareness Month Fundraiser
Sep 24, 2010
Macy’s and the Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) are offering violence prevention programs a unique fundraising tool to use during Domestic Violence Awareness Month – Shop for a Cause savings passes at Macy’s!
For the past several years, the FVPF has partnered with Macy’s to raise awareness and involve employees and customers in efforts to prevent violence against women and children. For the third year in a row, that work is expanding and the FVPF is offering interested programs free tickets for Shop for a Cause, a one-day shopping event at Macy’s stores across the country. Tickets are sold for $5 each, and programs keep all the proceeds.
Shop for a Cause Day will be Saturday, October 16th this year. Shop for a Cause tickets provide discounts on items throughout Macy’s on that day only.
The FVPF is looking for not-for-profit programs to sign up for this fundraising opportunity. There is no risk to programs, and participating organizations will receive the tickets they request (50 minimum) and keep ALL the proceeds from the tickets they sell.
Tickets can be sold to supporters and the public, by staff or volunteers, by tabling in public places or at events, and in other countless ways. The FVPF’s fundraising team will work closely with participating programs and provide tools, advice and ongoing technical assistance to support ticket sales.
Since 2006, Shop for a Cause has raised more than $34 million for regional and local charities across the country. This is your opportunity to be part of the excitement. To request tickets and sign on, please email FVPFShopForACause@prsolutionsdc.com.
