YETI is known for its durable and high-quality outdoor products and offers a wide range of drinkware, hard goods, and soft goods that are perfect for fundraisers. But did you know that they also have a corporate social responsibility program? In this blog post, we will discuss how YETI gives back to the community and how nonprofit event planners can partner with YETI to raise funds for their cause.
Unfortunately, YETI does not offer in-kind product donations to individuals or organizations, but they do offer discounts on select products available through the YETI Fundraising Program. This program is available to qualified nonprofit organizations with an active 501(c)(3) status.
Nonprofit organizations with an active 501(c)(3) status can apply for the YETI Fundraising Program which allows qualifying organizations to purchase YETI Tundra® Hard Coolers and Rambler® Drinkware at a fundraising discount. All products purchased through the program must be used for fundraising initiatives, and blank products purchased through the program may not be resold. However, custom products with your organization’s logo may be resold for fundraising initiatives.
To check your eligibility, please apply for the YETI Fundraising Program. Be sure to fill out the application in its entirety, as incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Qualified applicants will receive quotes within 1-2 business days.
If your nonprofit organization does not qualify for the YETI Fundraising Program, you can still purchase products through their Corporate Sales bulk discount program.
To qualify for the YETI Fundraising Program, your nonprofit organization must meet certain qualifications, including having an active 501(c)(3) status and providing a copy of your 501(c)(3) IRS Determination Letter. All products purchased through the program must be used for fundraising initiatives, and the order minimum is $350.00 after discount (excluding tax and shipping).
