Download our “In Support Of” marketing material to help increase your donations through the Giveacar scheme. You may use this material across your social media channels, newsletters, or you can print it for flyers and posters.
There are so many prospective donors out there who are unaware that Giveacar exists. Help us to help you. Simply blank over where it says “Your Logo” with a white box and add your own logo, done!Advert_design_landscape-.jpg Advert_design_portrait-.jpg
Featuring an advert to remind your supporters that they can donate with us is a great way to increase donations. A simple advert is helpful, but you can also get creative, so it relates to your charity. For guidance you can use the copy and graphics below:
Donate your car to (charity name,) via Giveacar!
Giveacar is a not for profit social enterprise that can turn your car into cash for (insert charity name.) They will arrange a free collection from your home at time that is convenient for you. Your car will then be auctioned or scrapped and the proceeds, minus admin fees, will be donated back to us. To find out more call 02077364242 or visit https://giveacar.co.uk
You can also use our logo (right-click to save it to your computer)
Giveacar adverts in newsletters have proven to be an effective way of bringing in donations. If you have a newsletter just a small advert can make a big difference. The RNLI receive regular donations via Giveacar because of their newsletter feature. You may use the graphics and blurb above and we are happy to help you if need assistance.
An email sent to your supporters is a quick and efficient means of informing them about our partnership. Use the text below to start spreading the word.
Subject line: Fantastic new way to support [CHARITY NAME HERE]
[CHARITY NAME HERE] has just partnered with car donation service, Giveacar, to launch an exciting new fundraising initiative:
Giveacar is a free and easy service that allows you donate your old or unwanted vehicle to [CHARITY NAME HERE]. They can arrange to have your vehicle picked up at a time to suit you. Your car will then be scrapped in an environmentally friendly way, or sold at auction and a donation made based on the value of the scrap or the auction price.
If you have a car taking up space in your garage or driveway, why not use it to raise money for [CHARITY NAME HERE] and support us to provide services for [YOUR TARGET GROUP HERE]? Telling your friends and family about our partnership with Giveacar will help us to tap into this new source of revenue that can make a huge difference.
To donate your old car, call Giveacar on 020 7736 4242 and quote [CHARITY NAME HERE] as your chosen charity. If you have any further questions about the Giveacar scheme, please call the Giveacar team or see their website at https://giveacar.co.uk.
