Washington, DC – Goodwill of Greater Washington (DC Goodwill) has partnered with popular car sharing network, Zipcar, to incentivize donors during the 2014 Do More 24™ online giving campaign. As part of the 2nd annual market wide fundraising effort, Zipcar will be offering discounts to the first 100 people who make a generous donation of $24 or more to DC Goodwill throughout the campaign. Those who are already a member of Zipcar, or a “Zipster”, will receive a $24 driving credit redeemable just by visiting www.zipcar.com/gift/redeem and applying a special code. Those who wish to become Zipsters can join at www.zipcar.com and apply a code to receive 50% off of their first year annual membership in addition to a $24 driving credit.
“Zipcar has proven to be a strong community partner and supporter of Goodwill”, said Brendan Hurley, Goodwill of Greater Washington Chief Marketing Officer. “Therefore it comes as no surprise that they didn’t hesitate to generously respond when we asked them to support our efforts once again.” “A core value of Zipcar is to have an impact, and one of the ways we do this is to partner with great organizations doing great work,” said Zipcar DC General Manager, Scott Hall. “We hope our participation in this campaign will drive additional donations and funding to help DC Goodwill deliver on its mission.”
