Every $1 Warms 1 Person!
Monetary donations are vital for providing warmth.
Because of One Warm Coat’s low-overhead, with every $1 donated, we are able to collect and distribute 1 gently worn coat through the Coat Drive program.
Monetary donations enable One Warm Coat to:
Raise awareness of the vital need for warm coats
Support the Coat Drive Program, by:
- Providing instructions, support and tools and resources to more than 4,000 volunteer Coat Drive Ambassadors
- Maintaining a database of more than 1,400 nonprofit organizations across the country who are in need of coats.
Support Nonprofit Partners, by:
- Matching volunteer Coat Drive Ambassadors with nonprofit agencies and schools in their area who are in need of coats
- Assisting more than 1,400 nonprofit agencies and schools in receiving the coats they need each year
Please note: donations raised for One Warm Coat through One Warm Coat’s website or a third party fundraising platform, stay with One Warm Coat and support the Coat Drive Program. Funds are not granted to our nonprofit partners.
How To Fundraise During Your Coat Drive
Here are a few ways you could collect funds for your coat drive!
Share Your Coat Drive Page
All registered Coat Drive Ambassadors will receive a link to a personal coat drive page for promoting their coat drive and collecting coat and dollar donations.
Ambassadors can share their personal page through email and social media to encourage family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to donate coats and dollars.
Every monetary donation made to an Ambassador’s coat drive page will automatically be credited to their coat drive and can be seen on the page in real time.
Ambassadors are able to quickly and easily check their page to see their donation totals.
