At Cactus Jack's we take great pride in supporting our local communities. Since 1984 we have donated over $1,000,000 in gift certificates to thousands of non-profit organizations. In recent years we created and implemented three annual fundraising drives (Thanks for Giving, Sweetheart of a Deal and Let's Trade a Meal) that have raised more than $160,000 for highly deserving New Hampshire based non-profit organizations in addition to participating in an annual national drive, with Share Our Strength, to end childhood hunger.
With so many donation requests, we are unable to offer cash donations of any kind other than through our three major fundraising drives. Below are the many ways we are able to support your organization; please read below and apply only for the donation type that best suits your organizations' needs. Please note that all donation requests will be evaluated through our home office. You may fill out one of the online forms, and we will respond to you within one week of receiving your donation request. Please apply at least four weeks in advance of your event or date needed. No phone calls please.
Restaurant Gift Certificate Donations
It is our experience that gift certificate donations appeal to nearly all organization types ... school sports raffles, church penny sales, private team sponsorships, golf tournaments, auctions, etc... Gift certificates attract all types of supporters, can be sold by your organization at face value or at a premium to raise money or can be used as incentives for other donators or as gifts for volunteers.
Our standard donation is one $25 gift certificate per organization event. Should you have a need for more please relay in the application exactly what you are hoping for and why (i.e. I need $400 in gift certificates because I'd like T-BONES to be the sole team sponsor and the t-shirts will cost us $395).
Food Donation Request
Food donations may be limited to the items below. Depending on your needs, we have capabilities to provide delivery to your site or provide pick up from one of our locations. Food donations are limited to six events per year, these will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve, qualifying basis. Preferred Food items available: Hamburgers & Hot Dogs, Lasagna Dinner, Taco Bars, Dessert Trays, Spaghetti Dinner, Appetizer Samplers and Cold Sandwich Platters.
Thanks for Giving and Sweetheart of a Deal non-profit partners (due by September 1st)
These two fundraising drives are highly reserved for non-profit organizations based right here in New Hampshire serving as many of our local communities as possible (Salem, Hudson, Bedford, Derry, Manchester, Laconia). Both drives are hosted annually. Sweetheart of a Deal is a fundraiser for the CareGivers Inc. (Their mission is to assist the frail, elderly, and disabled in order that they may maintain their independence and dignity.) The Thanks for Giving fundraiser will be chosen each September and no organization will be chosen for more than two consecutive years. We will consider all applications but we are admittedly partial to serving children, the elderly, families, animals and the environment.
Below are some moments of us giving back to our community... and you all help make it possible, thank you so much!
