Best, Innovative Fundraising Ideas | Recycle Frog Gold Drives

A Recycle Frog Gold Drive™ is one of the best, most simple, innovative fundraising ideas to come along in years. Unlike any other event, Gold Drives provide employees and individuals with a safe, convenient and financially rewarding way to recycle their unworn or broken gold jewellery while supporting their charitable cause!

With the price of gold at record highs, the average Canadian household has between $450 and $550 in unworn or broken gold jewellery. The problem is, consumers don’t have a effective way to recycle it and 'cash in' on this modern day gold rush. Just look at today's options.. Mail-in ‘cash-for-gold’ companies, mall kiosks and seedy pawnshops do nothing to inspire trust for a ‘fair deal‘ with prudent consumers.

Gold Drives

are an intelligent alternative. They are easy, fun and financially rewarding. Consumers can also take comfort in knowing Recycle Frog evaluations are all done right their in front of them. Nothing is hidden. No 'special charges' or uncomfortable negotiating. Just a fair, honest service they can trust.

The Power of a Gold Drive

The true power of this innovative fundraising concept lies in its ability to generate high value transactions that simultaneously benefit the fundraising campaign and its participants. No other program allows employees and individuals to walk away with money in their pockets while supporting their campaign.

What others are saying..

"We're always searching for fun, easy to organize events that maximize dollars raised for the United Way. Recycle Frog's Gold Drive program meets these requirements and then some."

Chantal Charbonneau | Director, Community Campaign | United Way Centraide

"What a great twist on fundraising. Our first couple of events were so successful that we had to add more days!"

Norma Lamont | Vice President, Community Development | CHEO Foundation

"Recycle Frog did all the work.. all we had to do was provide a room and put up the posters they provided. Our first event raised over $1,700 in just under 8 hours and we've booked them in for more events later this year."

Brenda McNealy | Zion Memorial United Church

We believe gold jewellery recycling is one of the highest impact and widely available recycling transactions that most people have never considered – spurring us to challenge consumers to “Rethink Recycle”. Recycle Frog has ambitious plans to take a leadership role in this challenging field and is working diligently towards launching a new Consumer Electronics division in the latter part of 2010.
