Thank you for your interest in supporting Good Shepherd Food Bank by helping raise funds to feed those in need. The food bank frequently receives heartfelt requests from individuals and organizations to host special promotions and contribute a portion of the revenues less out of pocket expenses (“percentage of net proceeds”) to us. We welcome these requests and have drafted the following requirements to protect both the organizations and Good Shepherd Food Bank. In order for a cause marketing promotion to be considered, the following procedures must be followed.
Cause marketing promotions are implemented by outside organizations for the benefit of Good Shepherd Food Bank, with minimal or no assistance from the food bank staff or volunteers.
The sponsoring organization must be respected in the community and one whose reputation will enhance Good Shepherd Food Bank’s public image. Care should be taken to ensure the sponsoring organization is not using the food bank’s name to offset bad publicity or to improve an otherwise unfavorable public image.
Each year, Good Shepherd Food Bank receives many requests from caring organizations who wish to hold an event and/or promotion to benefit the food bank. Because of the volume of these requests, we are unable to participate in every proposed promotion. The food bank utilizes this fundraising strategy to ethically and effectively generate resources for our agencies and the people they serve. We retain the right to refuse any event/promotion or appeal.
Good Shepherd Food Bank reserves the right to decline the support of individuals, corporations, foundations, or civic organizations if they are deemed to be a conflict with the mission of the organization.
Any information you distribute, publish or send out using the Good Shepherd Food Bank logo or name, including advertisements, social media campaigns, and press releases, must be approved by the Good Shepherd Food Bank.
