Donation The Princess
The Princess Project promotes self-confidence and individual beauty by providing free prom dresses and
accessories to high school girls who cannot otherwise afford them. Since 2002, we have served more than 18,000
girls, and with your generous help, we will serve 3,000+ more at giveaways this spring! We appreciate the time,
talent and taffeta you are giving to this effort and want to make sure you have great success in collecting
donations. Here are a few easy steps to follow:
Spread the word about your private drive
1 Contact The Princess Project at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your dress drive kit and start spreading
the word about the collection times at your office, school, church, etc. Please contact us prior to starting your
dress drive. As this is a private donation drive, only donors you invite to participate will know of your donation
drive. So tell everyone you can!
2 Get ready to receive donations
Clear a space to keep the dresses/accessories that people bring your way. Don’t worry about sorting through the
donations; we will accept and sort through all the donations you receive.
3 Collect receipt info from donors
Each of your donors should receive a receipt from The Princess Project. Prior to accepting their donation, please
ensure they fill out the receipt completely. You will need to bring the completed receipts with you when you
drop off the donations to the drop site.
It is important for the donor to have a record of their tax-deductible donation, and also for The Princess Project to
keep track of in-kind donations. Please leave extra time to get these forms completed.
4 Deliver the donations
Please contact The Princess Project at email@example.com to coordinate delivery of the donations.
5 Leave knowing you made a big difference!
