How Much Can My Organization Expect to Receive?

Rutter’s Children’s Charities will fund $75,000 in Vote With Your Dollars donations in 2016.

Organizations must clearly indicate the amount they are seeking to fund their project and a detailed description of the project.

For example: We are looking for $25,000 to purchase new specialized equipment for our organization.

Based on the number of votes received organizations will receive all or a portion of their request up to $75,000.

For example:

Organization 1 is seeking $25,000 and received the most votes.

Organization 2 is seeking $20,000 and received the second most votes.

Organization 3 is seeking $15,000 and received the third most votes.

Organization 4 is seeking $15,000 and received the fourth most votes.

Organization 5 is seeking $10,000 and received the fourth most votes.

Organization 6 is seeking $10,000 and received the fourth most votes.

Organizations 1, 2, 3, 4 will receive the entire amount requested.  Organization 5 & 6 would not receive funding for their requests as the max dollar amount for the program has been reached. 

The more people that vote for your organization, swipe their card or enter VIP credentials when making purchases at our stores, the more money you can raise for your organization.
