Need some help getting started?
Here’s a sample letter to send to potential donors. Personalize it to tell your story!
It's been a wild year and, if you're like me, you're feeling pretty anxious about the things happening around us. I’m coping by supporting my local community. This year, I'm channeling my of love bicycles into support for the 13th Annual Supermarket Street Sweep. Since 2006 the Supermarket Street Sweep has donated 87,077 pounds of food on pedal-power, and raised $104,096 dollars for the SF & Marin Food Banks. This is the equivalent of 330,880 meals.
We're falling short of our fundraising goals as we near the December 1, 2018 deadline—race day!—and I am reaching out for some help.
Donations to my team fundraising page go directly to the Food Bank and gifts are tax-deductible. [link to fundraising team page]
Track your team’s progress on the leaderboard!
The total amount recorded by 4:00PM on race day will be counted toward your team's ranking for the fundraising competition.
Are donations tax deductible?
Those who make a financial contribution through the fundraising website will receive an acknowledgement letter with the tax ID information emailed to them (or mailed if they write a check).
For food donations (food purchased by riders during the Sweep) – the SFMFB can provide a letter with their tax ID, and riders can submit that letter and any receipts for tax purposes.
