– For local activities the beneficiaries are chosen by the local stores
– Regional activities they are chosen by the region or group of stores
– State beneficiaries are chosen in consultation with the State Executive and Board.
Here is a couple of tips on becoming an IGA Community Chest beneficiary.
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.
