By signing up, you will engage in promoting our  raffle with other participating small businesses, each with a goal to raise $500 for the arts during the month of July. You provide a gift card or certificate with a value of $50 or more, and we will include you on a fundraising page created by Heights Arts.  Your in-kind donation is tax-deductible, however raffle purchases are not. Your customers can purchase raffle entries on our website or through their phones using a QR code leading to your fundraising page.

Your business is included in our social media promotions and mailings, so people can donate from anywhere in support of your business and the arts.

So, are you in? We hope so!
