RK Dixon and Premier to give away a $15,000 office technology makeover – and other prizes – to deserving non-profits
Make My Non-Profit Run Better contest celebrates 10 years with $57,000 in prizes
DAVENPORT, Iowa (July 20, 2015) – Registration is now open for the 10th annual Make My Non-Profit Run Better contest.
The contest provides non-profit organizations in more than 120 countries across central and eastern Iowa, northwest Illinois and southern Wisconsin the opportunity to win an office technology makeover.
RK Dixon and Premier will award $57,000 to be split between 18 winners, with the grand prize winner receiving a $15,000 office technology makeover. The first runner-up will receive a multi-function printer valued at up to $10,000. The four remaining winners will receive a multi-function printer valued at up to $5,000. In addition, RK Dixon and Premier will award 10 runners-up with printers valued at up to $1,000 each.
To recognize the 10th anniversary of the contest, RK Dixon and Premier are also launching the “10 Days of Giveaways” during the first phase of online voting. Each day, one registered non-profit will be awarded an 80GB Lenovo Tab 2 tablet via random drawing.
“Since the inception of this program, we have donated more than $450,000 to deserving non-profits around the area. We are thrilled and humbled to celebrate 10 years of giving back to those who choose to serve their communities every day,” said Bryan Dixon, CEO of RK Dixon.
The grand prize technology makeover by Premier and RK Dixon – both leading providers of copiers, printers, IT services, managed print services and pure drinking water systems – may include, but is not limited to: a black-and-white copier, a color copier, a printer, multifunction systems, IT services and water purification units.
“It’s harder than ever for non-profit organizations to find the money in their budget to purchase, install and manage office equipment,” said Dixon. “We created this contest 10 years ago as a way of acknowledging and thanking non-profits for the hard work they do in providing charitable services to our communities.”
Last year’s Make My Non-Profit Run Better contest awarded St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Washington, Ill. a $15,000 office technology makeover. The Iowa Arboretum, based in Madrid, Iowa, was named the runner-up, and received a $10,000 multi-function printer.
“There’s a lot of value to participating in the contest. It really galvanized a lot of people behind the Arboretum,” said Mark Schneider, executive director of the Iowa Arboretum. “It has helped us reach out to a variety of networks and it brought attention to our organization. There’s a lot of value in participating – even if you don’t win.”
This year, RK Dixon and Premier are inviting all 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations in central and eastern Iowa, northwest Illinois and the southern tip of Wisconsin to enter the Make My Non-Profit Run Better contest at www.MMNPRB.com. Registration for the contest is now open and will close at 5 p.m. on August 14. On Aug. 24, RK Dixon and Premier will then ask the public to go online and vote for the non-profit they think has the biggest need for an office technology makeover.
