  4. The exact dollar amount or percentage of gross proceeds must be included in the application.
  5. The applicant is responsible for collection of all items – monetary and in-kind - until the donation is presented to HSPPR (preferably within two weeks of the last day of the fundraiser).

  9. If applicable, HSPPR requires a copy of the Certificate of Insurance, naming HSPPR as an additional named insured 30 business days in advance of the start date for your fundraiser. 
  10. Applicant is responsible for all promotion and marketing associated with the fundraiser. Due to the large number of fundraisers organized on behalf of HSPPR, staff and volunteers cannot provide support to plan and promote your fundraiser. 
  11. HSPPR will not be liable for any expenses associated with the fundraiser. 
  12. HSPPR does not share its mail/email lists with any individual or organization and is not able to send an HSPPR generated e-mail or mailing or post to social media to promote the fundraiser. 
  13. HSPPR will include the approved content provided in the application on the HSPPR Event Calendar for the duration of the fundraiser, unless indicated otherwise. This assures the community that the fundraiser has been approved by the organization. HSPPR will also include the details of the fundraiser on the HSPPR LinkedIn profile page, unless indicated otherwise. Once approved, the applicant may create an Event listing on their own Facebook page. The applicant may then post the Event listing on the HSPPR Facebook wall. HSPPR will “Like” approved Event listings. Please note: HSPPR is not able to create Event listings on behalf of the applicant or share Event listings on the HSPPR Facebook page. The applicant may refer to, link to or share the calendar listing or any other social media post for the purpose of promoting and marketing the fundraiser.
