SANFORD’S COMMUNITY COMMITMENT CONTEST ~ MAY 2020
Your organization was nominated by our local community for Sanford’s Community Commitment, our monthly charitable giveaway of $500 for local non-profits. However, you haven’t won yet!
There is another non-profit(s) in the running to receive the $500 donation. Our selection is based on the non-profit that receives the most online votes from community members. The voting takes place on our website at www.choosesanford.com/community/ and voting will begin on TBD.
Please reply to confirm that you have a 501(c)(3) status and if you are ready to gear up for some friendly competition!
We also share the contest on social media to help drive voter awareness. We strive to help local charities boost their messages beyond the contest!
Once the contest goes live, Sanford will notify you via email.
- The poll on our website does let people vote from multiple devices; however each voter is only eligible to vote once every 24 hours, if using the same IP address.
- Please be aware that votes are only counted through the voting poll system at https://choosesanford.com/community/. Votes sent directly by email or through our Contact Us form cannot be counted.
- Rounding up followers on social media and within your organization is the best way to get votes; ask them to get their friends and family members to vote as often as possible. It only takes a few seconds!
- It’s never too early to start promoting the contest!
- The voting is also open to the general public, including Sanford’s customers, which helps organizations gain votes as well.
- Organizations that don’t win are eligible to participate again in the following months.
- Winning organizations are eligible to participate again only after one year (12 months).
Reminder: We understand that most non-profits are in dire need of money which is why we give back each month. If things happen like glitches in the voting system or malfunctions with technology, we will still give the $500 to the organization with the most votes at the end of the contest; voting ends between 8 am – 12 pm on the date selected; unfortunately we are usually unable to give participants an exact time, due to the unforeseen nature of our business, however if we are able to do so, we will certainly do so. Sanford is not responsible for any voting errors. This is done all in the name of fun and community support!
Note: By participating in this contest, your and/or your organization is subscribing to Sanford’s monthly newsletter.
If you have any questions or concerns, please Contact Us. We look forward to hearing from you.
