9th Annual Austin Give 5% to Mother Earth Campaign Recap

The 2018 Austin Give 5% to Mother Earth campaign set all kinds of records for participation and fundraising, including tons of visibility for the campaign, sponsors and participating businesses.

Created a dynamic website that helped users find sponsors and participating businesses featuring:

  • Logos of all sponsors
  • Full list of participating businesses with active links
  • Interactive map that includes each participating business location
  • Information about the 9 beneficiary nonprofit organizations
  • A social media contest to encourage the participating businesses, nonprofit organizations and the public to post and share about #AustinGive5. Goodie bag featured donations from participating businesses (giving them multiple additional opportunities for exposure) including multiple food and drink gift cards, beer growlers, a candle, earrings, and a journal.
  • 30-second video explaining the program and how to participate in the Go-Getter contest
  • A Thank You video to recognize our sponsors

Boosted Fundraising and business participation

  • More than doubled sponsorship dollars and in-kind value over last year
  • 34% increase in participating businesses – 135 compared to 101 last year
  • 36% increase in businesses locations – 222 compared to 163 last year
