“Such a great partnership! Not only did we raise money for our school and the needs of our students but we felt good about helping our local community businesses! Especially during this time of hardship. Loving Savior raised nearly $1,000 in just a few short weeks! It was super easy and we even had great raffle prizes available from a few of our local vendors! This fundraiser will not disappoint! Definitely a WIN WIN!!”
“A great app to use to help with promoting local businesses while fundraising for a good cause. We love the idea behind the app and how it can help small businesses in our community promote themselves while giving back to organizations within the community. It’s a win-win and everyone benefits. Why not shop local. Easy to use – download the app, snap a picture of your receipt and it’s uploaded. THINKNLOCAL takes care of the rest and works with the businesses directly to reconcile the receipts submitted.”
"I’m a business owner trying to support my local community as often as possible. I was approached by the team @thinknlocal and participated in our first fundraiser for one of the local elementary schools. Craig and his team have definitely created something innovative and modern with this app. Basically all the participants have to do is download the app, sign up, and take a picture of the receipt. The app does the rest. I would definitely recommend thinknlocal for your next fundraiser."
You’ll see how the efforts of each community stakeholder, whether a resident, non-profit organization or local business, can have a meaningful impact on the well-being of the community and the recovery of the local economy.How we can help?
