At Care For Friends, we are connecting Chicago's most vulnerable with the resources they need to achieve a better quality of life. As an official Partner, your organization is one of those critical resources that we connect guests with!
Our Annual "Sleepout For Homelessness" will be held on February 16, 2024, and is our largest fundraiser of the year. (If you're not familiar with the event, this page provides a nice overview). This year, we'd like to offer your organization an opportunity to benefit, too!
It's really simple. We will provide your organization with an affiliate code, and encourage you to share it with as many of your friends or supporters as you can. After the sleepout, we will make a donation to your organization for half the amount raised by any sleepers who registered with your code.
We'll take care of the rest - all of the event management, insurance, communication with participants, and the like. We'll even give you a template you can use to spread the word amonst your peers, and a fundraising kit for all of your sleepers which has over 50 videos, images, and social media posts that are ready for them to use in their fundraising efforts.
Here's a snapshot of the key benefits of our Sleepout Affiliate Program for you:
Easy Fundraising: Just encourage folks to register for the Sleepout using your Affiliate code. We'll take care of the rest, and send you half of what they raise (minus credit card processing fees) by February 28th.
Pre-Event Communication: As folks register with your Affiliate code, we'll share their contact information with you so that you can encourage them along the way!
Recognition in Press Release: If anyone registers with your Affiliate code, we will issue a joint press release to recognize your organization as an official Affiliate of the event.
Key Event Access: Two key events during the Sleepout are a 9:30pm S'mores snack and a 6:30am breakfast. We'll provide two members of your organization access to both events so they can encourage your sleepers!
Grow Your Donor Database: By February 28th, we'll send you a report of all the donors who made gifts to support your Sleepers, the sleeper they supported, and details about their gift.
