Tips for Getting Great Donations: 

  1. If you’d buy it, someone else probably would, too. Donate the kinds of things that you yourself would buy.
  2. Business owners or managers are more likely to donate goods or services to a loyal customer or someone they know personally. Next time you’re at your most frequented restaurant, clothing store or hair salon, ask for a donation – it’s always easier to make requests during holiday season!
  3. Handcrafted items such as artwork, quilts, jewelry, pottery, etc. are also popular.
  4. Gift certificates of at least $100 value are preferred. If the amount is lower, try to pair it with a physical, complementary item. For example, if a boutique owner offers a $50 gift certificate, ask if they would also donate $50 in merchandise, such as a scarf or t-shirt.
  5.  These “bundles” always inspire more bidding than each single event or experience.caféGroup certificates to offer an all-inclusive experience. For example, pair a hotel night with a dinner at nearby restaurant or tickets to a museum with a lunch at a nearby
  6. Remind donors that their gifts to the synagogue are tax deductible.
