Passport Project

For Youth Suicide Prevention

On behalf of Suicide Prevention Month this September, we are organizing a community-wide fundraiser called the “ForeverU Passport Project”. Through this project, we are joining forces with local restaurants and businesses to serve as Passport Partners. As a Passport Partner, you are invited to select one (or multiple) day(s) throughout the month of September to make a suggested donation of 20% from sales to assist ForeverU in providing impactful programs for teens in our community.

Here's How to Get Involved

Select a Date(s) to Serve as a “Giving Partner”

Chamber members, restaurants and businesses select one or more date(s) from December 15–31 to join forces with us as a ForeverU “Giving Partner”.

Promote Your Fundraiser on Social Media
We’ll provide you with a digital PR kit that contains materials and content that you can use to promote your participation in our holiday fundraiser and highlight your support for youth mental health.

       

Boost Brand Visibility and Recognition
Local residents who participate in your fundraiser are invited to document their visit by posting a photo to social media and “tagging” your business which boosts brand visibility and helps promote your fundraiser.

             

Donate a Percentage of Sales to ForeverU
At the conclusion of your fundraiser, your business is then asked to donate 15-20% from sales (carry-out, curbside pick-up, general sales, etc.) on the day(s) of your fundraiser. Your donation will help support ForeverU’s vision of ensuring that every child within our community has access to mentorship, peer community, and personal growth opportunities.

About This Fundraiser

ForeverU is a 501(c)(3) youth development organization empowers local youth on their mental health journey by giving them access to personal development programs and experiences.

 

As a direct result of the pandemic, unfortunately we have discontinued our plans of opening a community empowerment center in New Lenox.  We recognize that many local businesses  have faced similar adversities during these trying times of uncertainty and we would like to creatively uplift and educate our own community through partnership.

 

Through this project, community members are invited to support local businesses and document their visits at each location by tagging your business and ForeverU under their social media posts to help boost visibility of the fundraiser. At the end of the month, we will randomly select a winner to be the recipient of a gift card bundle that features participating restaurants and businesses.

 As a Passport Partner, your company will be:​

  • Featured on the ForeverU Partner Page with Direct Link to Company Website and Social Media (New Visitors Daily)

  • Featured in a 5-minute Interview with ForeverU on Social Media (4k+ Impressions)
