Benefit Day Application
Locals Benefit Days 2013/2014 – Application Information
Thank you for your interest in applying for our Locals Benefit Days for the 2013/2014 Season. We are looking forward to a great season! Please fill out the attached application and submit it to the Benefit Day Committee by Wednesday, October 16, 2013. Recipient selection will be largely based on the information you provide in this application, so please take the time to fill it out completely. Benefit recipients will be notified of our selection in early November 2013.
The Benefit Day Committee has implemented a few changes this year, which we hope will improve the success of the program:
- Proceeds from ALL FOUR of the Locals Benefit Days will be collected and equally divided among the four Benefit Day recipient organizations. We realize that a successful Locals Day depends largely on the weather and other factors outside of our control; therefore, we believe this approach will be much more equitable to all the participating recipients.
- Benefit Day recipients will be required to work collaboratively with each other to market the 2013/2014 Locals Days. To assist in this effort, the DMR Marketing Team will coordinate a collective brainstorming session with all recipient organizations to discuss the best marketing approach for this season’s Locals Days. Given the equal allocation of proceeds described above, it is in a recipient’s best interest to actively market all four of the Benefit Days and therefore maximize the total donation proceeds to their organization.
- Benefit Day recipients will be required to host one (1) Locals Day on location at Durango Mountain Resort. This will include setting up and manning a station in the Village Plaza on your host day. Your attendance will only be required on your host day, but you are welcome to participate on the other Locals Days as well (remember, locals can show their support of your organization on any of the days!)
- Also new this year, the time lapse required between awards has been decreased to three (3) years (this was previously set at five (5) years). So any organizations that were awarded before the 2010/2011 season are eligible to reapply.
Thank you for your interest in DMR’s Locals Benefit Day program.
