Socially Distant Fundraiser Ideas for Conservation Organizations

Due to COVID-19, we are all staying socially distant. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to cancel your annual banquet and fundraiser. Usually, Bird Band Raffles are held in person. But here are some other ideas to keep the fundraisers going while staying safe:

  • Facebook Live Raffle – Have your chapter president go Live at a designated time. They can show off the auction items, take donations, and name the winner, all in 1 video.
  • Online Auction – If you have a website, set up a page where members can view raffle items, buy the number of bands or shotgun shell tags they want, and then mail it to them. Use social media, or email blasts to announce the winner of the drawing.
  • Waterfowl SlamsSee Utah’s set up here. Bands are mailed out after the hunting season is over based on how much someone participated.

NWTF worked with NB&T to make an easy-to-use PDF order form to order shotgun shell tags or bird bands, and raffle tickets. If your organization is interested in creating something like this for your chapters, email us at [email protected]. If you are a smaller organization, who is interested in having a custom logo stamp made, learn more here. Paper Tickets numbered 1-100 are available (Style R2754) to help your drawing go smoothly.

Open Accounts VS Cash in Advance Accounts

To purchase products from National Band & Tag, we accept multiple forms of payment, such as credit card, check, wire transfer, and purchase order. We do not accept PayPal, Venmo, or other alternative payment methods.

If you have an Open Account (NET30 Account) with us, you can pay for your order using a Purchase Order (PO), or credit card. If you need to know what amount to put on your PO, you can contact us for a quote. POs with incorrect amounts or information will need to revised before we enter an order. We will also need a copy of the actual purchase order emailed or faxed to us, not just the PO number. Most universities and large institutions have us listed as a vendor. We may be listed under National Band & Tag Company, or International Identification Inc. All open accounts must pay for their order within 30 days after it has been invoiced. Orders are invoiced the day after it ships. If you would like to apply for an Open Account, you can fill out our Credit Application. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for processing of all credit applications.

Non-open accounts, must pay for their order in advance using a credit card, check, money order, or wire transfer (in US Funds). For credit cards, we accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. You can pay online with a card or call us at 859-261-2035 to pay over the phone. Please do not email credit card payments – this is not a secure transaction. We run on a production schedule, so we advise customers to pay for their quotes as soon as possible. Orders will not be scheduled for production without payment. Orders that are paid by check will be held until we receive the check in the mail. All returned checks are subject to a $35.00 fee. If you are writing a check, please contact us for a quote first so we can give you a total that includes state taxes (if applicable).
