NALS 90th Anniversary is something special, so special, in fact, that the NALS Foundation is stepping up our sweepstakes game!  Winning sweepstakes prizes at the NALS Foundation Sweepstakes drawing while raising money for the NALS Foundation (a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity) is a highlight of the conference experience.  The excitement of buying your tickets for a chance to win gift cards, cash, and luxury items is incomparable.  Knowing that when you place your ticket in the bag, you may have the chance to win an item that you may not otherwise purchase for yourself is exhilarating. Hearing your name called for the prize that you have your heart set on is scream-inducing!  The room explodes with cheers as the winners run to fetch their prizes, hoping that they will be next.  The Sweepstakes drawing is energy inducing fun!  Then, how, you may ask, could the NALS Foundation make the Sweepstakes even more exciting?  

Would you be more likely to spend more money at the NALS Foundation Sweepstakes, and thus receive a higher tax-deductible donation receipt, if you knew that you could win an item worth at least $90? That’s right friends! We are increasing the prize value for the NALS Foundation Sweepstakes items! The NALS Foundation is seeking donations with a retail value of at least $90 to celebrate the NALS 90th Anniversary! Our hope is to increase the value proposition for ticket purchasers to raise even more money to support the NALS Foundation programs! That means that for each ticket purchased, the buyer will have a chance to win a prize valued at $90. The more tickets you buy ($90 worth, perhaps?) the more chances you have to win at least one $90 item. 


Does that mean that I cannot donate my smaller item? No.  In fact, we encourage you to work with friends, family, law firms, employers, vendors, suppliers, local chapters, and state associations to put together a bundle valued at no less than $90. If you and three other people pool your resources, you each only have to donate an item valued at $22.50 to meet the $90 minimum. You can also solicit donations from anyone you know or do business with.  You can reach out to your local communities to make donations to support the NALS Foundation.  

Jewelry, watches, electronics, cash, gift cards, gift certificates, purchased items, and hand-crafted wares are all accepted.  You may ask, do I actually have to spend $90 to donate a $90 item? No. One thing that many who regularly donate to the NALS Foundation Sweepstakes do is visit an outlet mall. You can obtain valuable items from stores like Coach, Michael Kors, Fossil, Gap, Guess, Kate Spade, Merrell, Ralph Lauren, Quicksilver, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sketchers, Tommy Hilfiger, Vera Bradley, and more at a discount. The retail value of an item may be $90 or over, but you may be able to purchase the item at an outlet for less and donate it to the NALS Foundation Sweepstakes. You may also consider hand-making items to donate. Your time and talents have value. Consider what the items you make would cost someone to purchase in a store and then bundle a sampling of items together to reach $90, or team up with another creator to reach the $90 minimum. 


Once you have an item or items you would like to donate to the NALS Foundation, here’s how you can. Click here to visit the online submission form. Log in to NALS.org then, submit an In-Kind Donation Form (available at the bottom of the linked page).  Package your item(s) and mail via the postal service of your choosing (i.e., USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc.) to the following address:  Orr Willhite, PLC, c/o Mimi Mangrum Jackson, 601 Southwest Drive, Jonesboro, AR  72401.  Donors who prefer to hand-carry donated items to the NALS Conference must also fill out the In-Kind Donation Form but may deliver the items to any NALS Foundation Trustee at the conference.  Please note that all donated items will be used for NALS Foundation fundraising purposes.  This means that your donation may be allocated to special fundraising projects, bundled with other items, and/or not necessarily be included in the Sweepstakes.  We appreciate all donations and look forward to celebrating NALS 90th Anniversary with all of you! Thank you for your continued support!
