What is a Community Event?
It is an event or promotion that will benefit Cascade AIDS Project, sponsored by a person or organization not related to CAP. The event sponsor helps out by doing most of the work and is responsible for underwriting all of the related costs.
Throw a party, coordinate a holiday drive, or have a raffle at your office and more….
You can raise critical funds for Cascade AIDS Project by putting together your own special event to help in our fight against HIV/AIDS. Here’s your chance to build an event precisely suited to any audience you choose. Make it as large or as small as you would like; the only limit is your imagination. Past events have included:
- Dinner parties.
- Running races.
- Restaurant openings.
- School fundraisers.
- Office parties.
Community Event Policies
- Cascade AIDS Project cannot accept money from any event or promotion where the primary source of income or central activity is the sale of liquor, firearms, or tobacco.
- Cascade AIDS Project cannot make any investment, pay for, or reimburse any expenses incurred as a result of a community event. This means that the event/promotions sponsor must pay all expenses prior to remitting the net proceeds to Cascade AIDS Project.
- Cascade AIDS Project’s insurance policy does not cover community events.
- If your event or promotion involves a raffle or other type of gambling activity, or if you plan to sell or serve alcohol, you may be required to obtain a license from the State of Oregon, Dept. of Justice (DOJ) and/or The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC).
How can Cascade AIDS Project help?
Our Community Event partners are just that: partners working with us to help fight HIV/AIDS. We want to help you. Cascade AIDS Project offers varying levels of support for our partners, depending on the amount of money generated by their events/promotions.
For any Community Event or promotion, we can provide:
- Brochures, pamphlets, annual reports and other information about Cascade AIDS Project.
- Sample press materials.
- A written acknowledgement of the event for the donors’ tax purposes that details the maximum tax deduction allowable.
For Community Events or promotions donating $5,000 or more:
All of the above, plus…
- A Cascade AIDS Project development staff member to attend an organizational meeting, offer advice, and solicit involvement from chapter board members and other contacts.
- Media support (although press coverage cannot be guaranteed).
- The use of the Cascade AIDS Project logo (all logo usage must be approved by Cascade AIDS Project).
