Auction Item Donations
AUCTION ITEM DONORS NEEDED
Support Dreams Take Flight by making a merchandise donation to our fundraising events. As a registered not-for-profit charity, Dreams Take Flight relies entirely on the generosity and support of individuals & organizations to continue to provide a one-day trip-of-a-lifetime for medically, mentally, physically, socially or emotionally challenged children.
We require donations for the auctions at the various events that Dreams Take Flight Calgary is involved in. These are typically the Black Tie & Blue Jeans event and golf tournaments that businesses hold with us as a beneficiary.
All proceeds from this Black Tie & Blue Jeans event support Dreams Take Flight Calgary.
Please direct all donation enquiries to Barry Watts.
We ask that our Dreams Take Flight volunteers help by approaching businesses that they frequent for an auction item donation on our behalf.
If you do not feel comfortable asking businesses for donations, before approaching businesses, volunteers should review our Donation Acquisition guidelines.
Whether you are approaching a business for a donation or picking up a donation on behald of Dreams, you should bring a copy of our Donation Request Letter with you. Some businesses want to see a donation request on charity letterhead to help validate that you represent Dreams Take Flight. If a business is providing a donation, some want a copy of the letter for their files; it goes to the accountant.
Volunteers please complete a Donation Form for all merchandise donations for the Black Tie & Blue Jeans event. A completed donation form must accompany all merchandise when it is dropped off.
