BOOT CAMPAIGN FUNDRAISER FORM

PURPOSE
Please read this form in its entirety.

A third party fundraiser is one that is hosted by an individual, business, or other entity with a goal to fundraise for Boot Campaign (BC). These fundraisers are considered self-sufficient and will not be managed or sponsored by Boot Campaign but the fundraiser agrees to use guidelines set forth by Boot Campaign. 

We are beyond honored that you are fundraising to benefit our veterans through Boot Campaign! We could not fulfill this critical mission without passionate, patriotic people like YOU! 

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: 
  • Upon reviewing your completed form, we will provide a pre-determined set of assets to ensure the fundraiser has official and accurate messaging and marketing materials. 
  • Due to the demand and expense of sending BC representatives to fundraisers, we are unable to commit an appearance by our staff, Board of Directors, or retail team. In order to meet the goals of our mission, we must keep production, travel and other expenses to a minimum.
  • Boot Campaign is not bound to promote, advertise or otherwise facilitate the success of your event. 
  • Once this form is submitted, a Boot Campaign representative will be in touch.
