Creative Fundraising: Christmas Décor of Southern NH

To kick off this year’s annual year-end campaign, Christmas Décor of Southern NH owner Dan Bernard proposed a unique incentive to donate: Everyone who contributed at least $100 before November 30 was eligible to enter a drawing to have his company design and install holiday lighting and decorations at their home. Additionally, they also generously matched every donation of $100 to CASA with a $10 donation, with a maximum match of $2,500.

Donor Doreen Boissonneault, who has supported CASA of NH since 2011, was the lucky winner! Doreen told us that while she’s not in a place to be an advocate, she’s glad to help by donating every year.

Christmas Décor of Southern NH owners Dan and Kristine Bernard are longtime supporters of CASA of NH. Dan, a former CASA of NH board chairman, says, “After serving on the Board of CASA for nine years, I’ve seen firsthand the difference the organization makes in the lives of New Hampshire’s children. Given their importance in deriving positive outcomes for our most ‘at-risk’ population, I can’t think of a worthier cause to support than CASA.” Dan and Kris are also owners of Mosquito Joe, providing mosquito control to the southern New Hampshire area.

We’re thrilled to report this year’s campaign was incredibly successful, thanks to dedicated supporters as well as 65 new donors, an increase of 38 new donors over last year.

Thanks to their generous support, this year’s Giving Tuesday campaign was the biggest ever for CASA. Over $16,000 was raised in 24 hours from 74 donors, including 11 new donors and 14 advocates.
