Fundraising for your organization through People’s City Mission’s Toss Box Program
WHAT ARE TOSS BOXES?
Toss Boxes are a great way to raise funds for your most important projects. With a very minimal investment, you can earn thousands of dollars every year.
This all works by using volunteers to empty your Toss Box, and then bringing its contents our Help Center in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Because your labor is free, the only cost is purchasing a Toss Box. Most organizations make $3,000 – $5,000 a year.
You can earn this by bringing us the contents collected from a Box. We then recycle them and split the proceeds with you 50/50 based on current pricing for recycled goods.
The greatest part of this program is that every dollar made is either going to support your cause or feed a homeless person.
HOW MUCH DOES A TOSS BOX COST?
Toss Boxes are really not that expensive. They come in two sizes, small and large. A small Toss Box costs $1,200 and a large Box costs $2,000.
You can purchase a Toss Box outright or finance part of it from proceeds being generated by your Box.
For example, you can purchase a small one for $1,200, put $300 down, and then have us deduct $300 a month from monies owed you over a three-month period.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I BUY A TOSS BOX?
We will help you find the best site to place your new Toss Box and deliver it to you. Placing one in a good location is key to it generating strong usage.
Next, you bring what you collect to our Help Center. We will weigh your contents and provide you a receipt for monies owed based on current prices for recycled goods.
In addition, we can help with any repair issues when needed. However, Toss Boxes are generally maintenance free because of their heavy-duty all-weather construction, and not much can go wrong with them!
