Welcome to CanDo’s Napa Valley Give!Guide application process.
Applications are due by 11:59 PM, May 25, 2018
To qualify for CanDo’s Napa Valley Give!Guide, you must be a registered nonprofit serving residents of Napa County for two years or more. In addition, a representative of your organization MUST have attended the May 3rd NPO orientation this year if:
- Your nonprofit has never participated in the Give!Guide before, or
- Your nonprofit did not participate in 2017 (even if it participated in previous years), or
- Your nonprofit participated in 2017, but a new person will be in charge of the project this year.
NOTE: The Give!Guide does not accept applications from nonprofits that support programs for individual schools, scholarships intended for a single individual, or memorial funds. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about eligibility.
WORDING FOR CATALOG AND WEBSITE:
If selected, some of the information you provide in this application will be used directly in the 2018 Napa Valley Give!Guide catalog and website. Choose your words with care.
If you are selected, there is a nonrefundable participation fee ranging from $300 – $500 depending on the size of your annual budget. This is due on July 12, 2018 with a check payable to Napa Valley CanDo.
COMPLETING THIS FORM:
You do not have to complete this application in one sitting. You may save the form and return later to continue working on the application. Alternately, you may print the blank application, answer the questions offline and use it as a reference as you fill out the online form.
When the application has been completed, we strongly suggest saving a copy for your records.
LOGOS and IMAGES:
Your logo and the image that will appear in the catalog and on the website must be submitted with this application. For many potential donors, this is the most important element of your display. It helps you visually educate readers about who is served by your nonprofit. Most effective: not too many people, smiling faces, animals, etc.
SELECTING YOUR PHOTO:
Send an original, high resolution image which will be used for both the catalog and website. Keep in mind that the orientation for the catalog and website are slightly different. The catalog image is nearly square; the website image is a widened landscape version. When taking the photograph, we suggest leaving extra space on the right and left hand sides of the main image. For the catalog, the extra space can be cropped out. For the website, the photo can be left uncropped.
Photos and logos must be high resolution which means 300 dpi or higher, jpeg format. The finished size of the photo will be approximately 2.4” square, but the designer can resize it if your image is larger than that. (If you need additional direction for ensuring a high res photo, please contact our designer, Kathie Fowler, at [email protected].)
Your nonprofit’s image on the website is the same image used in the printed catalog, however the proportions will be slightly different. The web photo should be in landscape mode (a horizontal rectangle), approximately 2.4″ h x 4.5 w. A larger image can also be resized by the designer.
