Ultimate Donation List

PLEASE NOTE:
Hi everyone!

For those of you who've been posting on this thread, you'll note the name change from Ultimate Donation List 2015 to simply, Ultimate Donation List. We adjusted the name because we wanted to keep things simple for you. Going forward, I will bump up some of the lists that folks have posted in previous years along with helpful links from our site on auction planning, getting donations, contacting businesses, and thanking donors.

Also, please let us know what kind of information you need! We'll do our best to get it posted on this thread.

All the best everyone!

LAST YEAR'S INTRO POST:

Hello everyone!

It's time to start a new Ultimate Donation List, so here's our post to launch the 2015 Ultimate Donation List! We'll carry over some of the more popular lists and add them to this thread.

All the best for 2015!

Hi everyone,

Here's a start at carrying over listings that you folks have posted over the last few years. We should say up front that these are not companies we endorse. Rather, these are companies community members have listed as having provided them with a donation. I'll keep adding over the next few weeks.

Poster Kim G offered these tips on the 2014 Ultimate Donation thread:


I've found that if you Google the State you want and Donation Request you will get a lot with the standard online donation form. Just don't open the first page keep looking through the first 5 - 10.
I was also told to look on Pintrest for some great ideas.
I've had success with, Red Sox, Disney Hopper Passes, Storyland, NH, Lindt Chocolate NH, CheeseCake Factory, Tiny Prints. Walmart local store gives $50 GC if you time it right. We have Shaws Supermarket and Price Chopper Supermarket they give a $25 GC twice a year just walk in with your letter.
I've also noticed that because of this great list some companies are overwelmed now with donation requests and are turning people down.
