Host a Fundraising Bead Party
We believe its important to give back not just to Uganda but to our local communities as well.
That’s why we provide the opportunity to host a Fundraising Bead Party so you can make a difference for a non-profit organization in your community. Host a Fundraising Bead Party, and we’ll donate 20% of the funds you raise to the non-profit organization of your choice, such as your school, church or a local charity. Please note that Fundraising Bead Parties are available only in the United States and Canada.
Important Note for Canadian hosts: All donation checks will be sent to the charity of your choice in U.S. dollars.
Here’s how to participate
Select the non-profit organization you want to support. If you live in the US, make sure that the organization is registered as a 501c3 non-profit with the IRS and that you can obtain a copy of its IRS Form W-9. If you live in Canada, make sure that the organization is listed on the Canada Revenue Agency's Charity Listings website as a registered charity.
Resource: Here is suggested email copy to send to the organization you choose to support should you need to request the W9 from them.
Register online, and be sure check the Fundraising Bead Party box on the registration form.
If you live in the US, send us an IRS Form W-9 (taxpayer identification) to confirm non-profit status for the organization you are choosing to support. If you live in Canada, you must confirm the correct mailing address for your selected charitable organization and forward to your Customer Care representative. Once we receive your returned Bead Party box and all of the funds you raised, a donation check will be written directly to the organization you designate when you registered your Bead Party.
For US parties, be sure we have received an IRS Form W-9 for your designated charity by the time you complete your Fundraising Bead Party. We cannot issue a donation check without it.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL: You must be in good standing with BeadforLife in order for the donation check to be processed. Please be sure that all materials and funds raised are returned to BeadforLife within the allotted time frame. If you receive a Pre-Collections letter from the Business Team, you will no longer be eligible for a donation check.
