Thank you for your time. I would like to talk to you about a program to drive people through your doors and strengthen the community at the same time. Community Pay it Forward Fundraising Program is about to roll out our easier to manage, easier to navigate, and easier to donate program. Our mission stays the same as we invite people to visit local merchants who are willing to donate a portion of sales to causes to Northern Colorado Causes with a proof of purchase in the way of a receipt or invoice turned in to Community Pay it Forward.
That’s it. No extra work, no extra effort by you or your employees. Best yet, very little work for your customers. They take a picture of the receipt then upload it to the website after choosing the cause they wish to support. We then once a month invoice you with all those who have visited you through the Community Pay it Forward Fundraising Program. We call this Driven Marketing. Because we are not a 501c3 program that gives you Non-Profit tax privileges, our Driven Marketing Program allows our Fundraising and Sponsorship Partners the capability to write this program off under your marketing budget.
Why will people choose our partners over merchants? People inherently like to donate to causes that touch their heart, our program;
Gives them a vast list to choose from and allows them to donate multiple times in one day.
Helps people with tight financial restraints donate to causes. We do not a have money we can spare to donate, but to survive, we all need to shop. Giving people the chance to donate because of where they choose to shop.
Gives people the chance to donate when they can. The only limitations are business hours. This helps people who frequently have to work during prime fundraising times.
Our partners are giving people a chance to make a difference. They realize that the coupon or discount they receive from a place would be nice but giving that $5 to a family is the difference between milk, cereal or hunger.
But this can only happen with the help from our community merchants. Please allow us a moment to show you how this program would work if someone was looking to put together a poker run in Northern Colorado. Our search will start by visiting www.CommunityPIF.com;
We will start our search at the new www.CommunityPIF.com and navigate our way to Community Pay it Forward List button. Starting from the homepage, this is how you would find a service you are looking for.

you would then find the sub service and narrow the search to our exact need, in this example, Poker Runs;

We are building the site to allow our partners the opportunity as much exposure as they would like.
