    3 months before your event). 50% of companies' donation applications are due 6 weeks or more before the event date. • Turn on donation application reminder emails • Use filters to find the right donors for your organization • Location matters • Prioritize companies that donated recently and have high approval rates. Avoid donors who are always declining. Work effectively • Leverage interns and volunteers • Have a streamlined process: Save, Apply, Follow-up, Thank donors, etc.
  7. Best Practices Have the right expectations. • Avg response rate

    is 40%. Avg approval rate is 13%. Work backwards to see how many you’d need to apply to. Earn credits • Referrals • Adding photos Resources • Reference our blog for donors by category (e.g. cookware) and city (e.g. Los Angeles). • Use our Templates Library
