Pura Vida is proud to support our community and fundraising is a way to show our support for local non-profit organizations.
What is a Pura Vida Fundraiser? Pura Vida will donate to your non-profit organization- we require a valid tax ID number. In-Store fundraisers have a set evening where your non-profit will promote patrons coming in to enjoy cool treats and you will receive 20% of the sales from the in store fundraiser (excluding tax or gratuities), when an event flyer is presented. We also cater at schools, churches, or charities or other group; however, we have a 100 shaved ice minimum in order to donate back to your group. Contact us for more information as catered fundraisers outside of the store use a different structure.
Application must be submitted to Pura Vida a minimum of four weeks in advance of the requested fundraiser night. We accept fundraisers on a first come first serve basis, so the further in advance the better chances of us accommodating your fundraiser!
For all in-store fundraisers, guests must have a valid Pura Vida Shaved Ice flyer in order to have the sale counted. Vouchers must be turned in to one of our employees at the time of purchase. The fundraiser cannot be used towards the purchase of gift cards. We will staple the receipt to the event voucher for tallying.
In accordance to Pura Vida’s no solicitation policy, organizations are not permitted to display or distribute propaganda for the organization’s scheduled fundraiser on the premises of any Frontier West premises. You must receive approval from ANY private property owner if you wish to distribute flyers or display posters on premises (i.e. placing flyers on cars, handing out at shopping centers etc.) Pura Vida does not hold liable for any littering or postal fines if this rule is violated.
A $400 minimum for a two hour window of time (approximately 100 pre-sold tickets) for any catered off-site fundraiser is required.
Planning TipsPersonally delivering flyers and telling people about your event is the best way to secure people attending your Pura Vida Fundraiser. Friends, family and volunteers are the perfect resources.
Press releases, public service announcements to newspapers, radio stations, or even email distributions are great ways to announce your event.
Promotion is the key to success. The enthusiasm of your organization’s members to promote your event is the biggest factor in success.
Distributing flyers 1-2 weeks in advance is optional, but you will also have electronic versions of the Pura Vida Fundraising flyer, so printing and/or emailing will be easy. Display flyers around community locations and your organization’s meeting spot.
Remember, email is also a cost effective way to promote your event. Be sure to instruct the recipient to print the event flyer and bring it in.
Pura Vida provides: The fun and inviting atmosphere.
Customized PDF flyers that your organization can print at least 2 weeks prior to your event.

Your Non-Profit Organization provides:Completed application with a valid tax ID number.Promotion of the event, printing and distribution of flyers and vouchers. Emailing is an alternative to distributing the marketing of the event.
For a successful fundraiser we suggest distributing at minimum 500 flyers.
Please use the verbiage from the flyer we sent in any communications about your fundraiser. We aren't discounting anything; rather, raising funding for your organization.
Remember: SnoCone is a swear word around these parts.
Utilize any print materials you already have. Stuff flyers in newsletters or magazines already set to go out. Take advantage of any opportunity to announce your Pura Vida Fundraiser to groups willing to support your cause.
But most importantly- HAVE FUN!
