The ULTIMATE Donation List

Lots of great info - Thanks everyone!

Every now and then I jump in and repost slfournier's original post with the posting format guidelines:

I've noticed that a lot of the listings for auction/raffle donations are quite old. Both the economy and company policies change over time, so I am starting a new Thread. I have found it tedious to go through pages and pages of a thread to get what we all really want - Names and contact info of national corporate donors people have been successful with. So, I ask the following:

1) Only list sources you have had success with.
2) If you have questions for a poster, please contact them directly - not through this thread. This thread is supposed to be a Listing.
3) Use the following format for your listing

-- Mailing Address -or- URL for online form
-- How long it took you to get a response
-- What did the company donate?
-- Your comments

I also got 2 bottles of wine from a local wine store to be paired up with each of the wineries that donated a tour/tasting for 2 people.

I spoke to the GM at my local Staples and he told me to come in with a donation letter and they will fill out the paperwork for me right there. He said they usually do a $20-$25 gift card...

Good luck....

I just heard back from Staples online at their foundation info. dept. and they said to go to your local Staples and ask the GM about their We Care Staples gift cards. My local GM told me that they get a monthly list of products they can donate, so check back in March.
I emailed CVS last week and haven't heard anything yet!

I applied for a CVS donation right on-line thru their website. With in about 48 hrs I heard I am getting a $25 gift card as a donation :)

I also did Staples on line the end of December and I have not heard anything yet :(

I am hearing form many local museums that most donations, if we receive one, will go out the month before an event...

Good luck all...
