FUNDRAISER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does my organization earn money from this program?

Pre-tax sales from a Viva La Boba Fundraiser may only be applied with orders placed on the day and time it was booked. Merchandise sales and gift card purchases are not included.
When will my organization receive the donation?
Two days after your event, we will send you an email with information regarding how much money your organization earned.
A check will be issued to your organization within 2 weeks of your event. If it has been more than 2 weeks since your event and you still have not received a check, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

OK, I want to throw a Viva La Boba Fundraiser. How do I apply?
Applying is easy. The first step is finding out what kind of non-profit organization you are, as this will determine how you apply. 501(c)3 organizations are recognized by the government as tax exempt under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code so they will not be taxed for any donations earned. Please note, there are many types of non-profit organizations that do not have this status. You can confirm your organization’s status on the IRS website: https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos/
How do I apply for my 501(c)3 organization?
Email a valid 501(c)3 Tax I.D. number and your proposed date to email@example.com. Please note, all fundraisers for 501(c)3 organizations must be scheduled at least 10 days in advance.
How do I apply for my non-501(c)3 organization?
Email your organization’s Tax I.D number, a completed W9, the organization you are fundraising for and proposed date to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be submitted at least 14 days in advance.
