2013 ULTIMATE DONATION LIST

In response to the question about Bidding for Good. We're a nonprofit that gets approximately 130 items, and raise about $3500 as our attendee base is not large. So, paying for Bidding for Good was not an option and chose to go with their free version. This has worked fine for us as it allows me to capture donors and donations. We post out the link for advertising, but all bidding and payments are done at the live event. I've not heard many positives about the value associated with the other businesses that they provide as a network for possible donations - based on many posts here, it doesn't look like many get positive results from actually receiving donations.

I'm in Orlando,FL too. What local companies were you able to get donations from?

Too many to list, thankfully. I purchased an Enjoy The City coupon book and hit up every business in there. Then I just did a walk around to the different plazas.

A lot of them had to go through corporate offices but almost everyone in the Enjoy the city book gave me something even if it was small

Has anyone had luck getting hotel stays outside of their state?

We have airline tickets and nothing to pair them with

I'm not good with asking local places for donations. What do you say for example when you go to a local business asking for a donation? Do you ask for the manager? At what point of talking do you hand the person the donation letter? How do you start asking them for the donation? I need a little "hook" if someone has one. Thanks.
