Here at Izzy’s, we focus our charitable giving by donating to organizations through our 13 Days of Giving program.
Does Izzy’s do any other donations?
We currently are focusing our donations into 13 Days of Giving only. Due to the high volume of requests we receive, we are unable to continue individual donations at this time. However, we are excited to offer the opportunity to apply for 13 Days of Giving more publicly!
What is 13 Days of Giving?
13 Days of Giving is our annual philanthropic event, where we help raise money for a variety of local and regional non-profits and charitable organizations. From February 1st through 13th, $2.00 from every single scoop – cup, sugar cone, cake cone, or waffle cone – will go towards that day’s featured organization.
How do I participate?
If you would like your organization to be considered for our next 13 Days of Giving, please check back on January 15, 2020. We have a wide variety of organizations that will apply, but only 17 can be selected each year (we feature 1 organization each weekday February 1st-13th, and we feature 2 organizations each weekend day) .
How will I know if my organization was selected to participate?
The selected Organizations will be informed at the beginning of November. If you aren’t selected this year please reapply next year.
What is expected of me if my organization gets selected?
You aren’t required to do anything! But, if you are selected, you are welcome to join us at the shop on your featured day to talk to customers about who you are and what you do (and where the money is going that day!). Your organizations can also give us pamphlets/flyers/materials ahead of time, and we will display those in the shops as well. Blasting on social media to come in for a scoop tends to be the most effective way to get people aware, but 13 Days of Giving is whatever you want to make of it! $2 for every scoop adds up, and, on your organization’s feature day, we will also have boxes out for additional donations.
