Description

WE'RE SORRY, BUT WE HAVE EXCEEDED OUR ALLOTMENT FOR THIS PROGRAM. YOU ARE WELCOME TO JOIN THE WAITLIST IN CASE WE ARE ABLE TO DISTRIBUTE MORE CHAIRS TO THIS PROGRAM.

Snow Ghost “Chairs for Charity”


Schweitzer is proud to support the local community by dispersing lift chairs as we replace the iconic Snow Ghost with TWO new lifts to better service our skiers. Here’s how it works:

  • Each chair is worth $2000
  • There is no payment taken via this site (you just sign up to participate here)
  • A person (or organization) chooses a local Sandpoint organization they would like to support and makes a request to participate on that organization’s behalf through Schweitzer (by clicking on the link above). Once approved by the donations committee, they wait until the chairs are ready.
  • Once a chair is available, simply bring a check to Schweitzer for $2000 written directly to the approved organization of your choice. You are donating money directly and writing a check direct to that specific charity/ organizations. Schweitzer will send the check on your behalf with some information about the program (and maybe some stickers too).
  • Schweitzer gifts a chair to the donor and they can do as they wish with it; keep it for themselves, give it away, etc. (it is their chair now!)
  • Schweitzer makes no commitment to verify that each donation qualifies the giver for a tax break. It is the responsibility of the donating party to verify this information.
  • Each organization on the recipient’s end is only eligible to receive 1 financial donation of $2000 from a chair per year.
  • An organization could potentially receive two Schweitzer items in a year. One, they may request one donation item per year for their event/ cause such as tickets, passes, gift baskets, or even a chair of their own! Two, they may receive one payment of $2000 from someone donating money on their behalf in order to get a Snow Ghost chair.
  • Donors will not be able to choose the number of chair. (you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit)

FAQs

  • I'm ready, can I hurry and give someone my money? Please wait until the chairs are available for pick up. When you come to pick up your chair, you'll bring the funds with you to pass on.
  • What if I want to pay in a different manner? We'll work with you to make sure you can support your organization with the financial payment method you desire.
  • How do I get my organization on the list? There is no list! You'll just have to convince your supporters that they want a chair for $2000 and that they should give your organization the $2000
  • How much is Schweitzer taking? Nothing! Schweitzer wants 100% of the money to go into the Sandpoint local community. Chairs are highly sought after and we thought what better way to use the demand than by passing it on to charity.
  • What if three people want to buy a chair and give my organization the funds? Sorry, in an effort to spread the love, Schweitzer limits donations to 1x per year for each organization.
  • Are there other ways I can get a chair? Perhaps, chairs are sure to pop up at fundraising events and other local events. Keep your eyes and ears open!
  • Can my organization have a chair to auction off? Perhaps, organizations are welcome to request a donation through the Schweitzer website. All donation requests are reviewed by a committee and divvied out appropriately. While some organizations may receive a season pass, others receive items such as gift baskets with tickets.
  • I'm signing up, now what? Hurry up and wait! We need some time to begin construction and gather chairs for you. No need to reach out to your receiving organization, we'll team up with you when you come to pick up your chair to make sure each recipient understands that they're getting some money and why.
