3 days until Run Day!

Old Bill’s Fun Run is Saturday, September 10


Dear Old Bill's Nonprofits,
If you have not already done so, please read the Nonprofit Guide to Old Bill's, which covers a lot of important information about this year's event. Most of the questions that we have received this week from nonprofits are answered in this document.

Reminder: The Community Foundation staff processes gifts steadily from the start of the Giving Season (August 12) through mid-October. All gifts are reviewed prior to posting, including online donations, which creates a delay between gift receipt and when gifts are visible on Donor View. Note that almost ⅔ of all donations arrive in the last week of the Giving Season. Last year, the Foundation received over $1 million in checks and over $300,000 in credit card gifts on the last day. You will be notified when all gifts have been processed. We appreciate your patience! 

NONPROFIT GUIDE TO OLD BILL'S

Nonprofit Booth Village

Thank you in advance to those nonprofits hosting a booth on Saturday. Old Bill's is a fun and festive venue in which to showcase your organization’s great work. Our goal is to make your booth hosting experience streamlined and stress-free on Run Day.
 
To view your organization’s booth number, drop-off time, and drop-off location, please visit oldbills.org/booths
 
Be advised that your organization is responsible for knowing and adhering to the event’s booth hosting protocols. If you will not personally be managing your nonprofit’s booth, please forward this email to the appropriate contact.
 
If you are not hosting a booth on Run Day, the following are suggestions on how your nonprofit can participate fully in Old Bill's Fun Run.

We need more Route & Traffic Volunteers for Run Day. Volunteer as an organization or consider sharing this opportunity with your networks.

On Saturday, September 10 at 10am, Old Bill's Fun Run will take place in person at the playing fields at Jackson Elementary School (JES) on Willow Street.

Countdown Week (September 6-9)

This week, the Community Foundation is using digital and print media platforms to build Old Bill’s awareness and fundraising momentum by spotlighting nonprofits by services areas/areas of interest. At oldbills.org, the Foundation will highlight Old Bill’s Participating Nonprofits and a Nonprofit Photo Gallery (scroll down to bottom).
 
Each day the Foundation will highlight specific nonprofit service areas (see below). Each organization specified its service area in their Old Bill’s application.

  • Tuesday, September 6 – Conservation & Environment + Animals

  • Wednesday, September 7 – Education + Civic

  • Thursday, September 8 – Sports & Recreation + Arts & Culture

  • Friday, September 9 – Health & Human Services

This year, Countdown Week is focused on social media and marketing amplification leading up to Run Day. Each nonprofit is invited to do something on its designated day to celebrate its work and Old Bill’s in general. Some ideas:

  • Create a digital impact photo compilation and share it on your website and social media.

  • Make a short video about your organization and how to support it through Old Bill’s, then post it to social media or send out in a special edition e-newsletter.

  • Individual or collaborative newspaper or radio advertising.

You’re encouraged to share your Countdown Week celebration via Foundation marketing channels:

  • Use the hashtag #oldbills2022 in social media posts.

  • Tag @cfjacksonhole on Instagram and/or Facebook.

  • Email your photos and/or video content to Anne Bradley.


Please note: The above ways to participate in Old Bill’s are entirely optional. As always, your nonprofit is free to determine how to engage your stakeholders in Old Bill’s celebrations and giving.

Thank you!
