It is best to approach your local IGA store directly. Prepare a pitch and it may include:

An overview of your organisation and/or the individual that you’d like supported;

What support are you looking for – monies, donations of goods, providing team jumpers, holding regular fundraising at the store, group registrations at the store, etc;

How the donation will be used and your timing. Is there anything you can offer in return to IGA?

Don’t forget to include your contact details.
