Spring Bidding for Good
The fundraising committee needs your help in soliciting gift cards and gift certificates from local businesses to make the online auction a success. We made more than $2,000 in the fall online auction, much of which came in from outside our four walls.
Local businesses large and small set aside amounts to donate to local charities every month and all we have to do is ask them for their support. Most local merchants are happy to help because they know that the goodwill is good for their business.
A Google document has been distributed by e-mail to the FUSF List. Anyone can go in to that document and sign up to solicit a local business. If you know of a local business that you’d like to solicit that is not on the list, go ahead and add it!
Brochures that you can take with you to hand to local merchants are available at the FUSF Store. The brochure tells the merchant who we are, the good things we do, and how the BiddingForGood auction will give their business visibility locally and online.
