Does anyone have experience getting a donation from AG lately? I have a friend at another elementary school that requested a donation last June for an October event, and she just got something in the past two weeks. Not a problem, because I'm grateful for anything I can get! However, I'm trying to figure out if I shouldn't get my hopes up for something in time for our April event. I requested it the first week of January, when they re-opened their donation requests.

Unless you have a RackRoom location in your town it didn't pay. We were given a donation last year and didn't notice that it's available for purchases made in-store only.]

Last year I was the chairperson for our auction. What I did was create a word document that I sent to every person who helped fill out on-line applications. This way I knew they would have everything they needed up front, and everyone would use the same information.

I made a table with two columns. The left column was what could be asked for, and the right column gave the information. Since I was heading this, I wanted all communication to come to me, so I used my name/email/phone number under the contact portion. All of this eliminated someone needing to contact me for information they didn’t have.

The items I had in my left column are: contact name, title, contact email, contact phone number, organization name, organization address/shipping address, organization phone number, organization fax number, organization email, organization website, organization contact name, tax id/501c3 number, date of event, type of organization, location of event, name of event, type of event/description, details of how the product will be used, nature of request/why should we donate, what should we donate, demographic, mission statement, # of people we expect to attend, when is donation needed, what will we gain, what will profit from event be used for, attachments (ie your ask letter, your 501c3 document, etc)

Example:

Contact name Jane Doe
Title Auction Chairperson
Contact email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Contact phone number 123-456-7890
Organization name The Best School

Hi Everyone! I am super brand new to the PTA and I have been asked to become the next PTA V.P. for the next term which I am so excited to do!

This June we are looking to start a carnival. I have read every single post in this thread because this time we will need to expand our sponsors to larger companies as our local business wouldn't be able to support the entire event. I was wondering for those that have reached out to large companies can you tell me what they will ask me to provide? Whether its completing online or mailing. I would like to provide the current PTA group a list of things/information I will need to complete this task but don't want to have to call/text/email every time I have a question on information needed. So anything you found that most have requested, as well as some unusual things they may have requested would be awesome! I also have others who have offered to help with this task who are also unfamiliar with all of the PTA information so I want to be a organized as I can! Many Thanks to all of you that have posted your comments, successes and failures. :)
