RK Dixon has teamed up with sister company Premier, a central Iowa office technology company, to offer its eighth annual Make My Non-Profit Run Better contest.
The contest provides non-profit organizations in more than 115 counties across Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin the opportunity to win an office technology makeover valued at up to $15,000.
First runner-up will receive a multi-function printer valued at up to $10,000. The three remaining winners will receive a multi-function printer valued at up to $5,000. In addition, 10 runners-up will receive printers valued at up to $1,000 each.
“This is an exciting time for us because we’ve teamed up with Premier to bring the contest to the central Iowa region as well,” said Bryan Dixon, president and CEO of RK Dixon.
Since the contest's inception, he said more than $296,000 has been donated to help non-profits better serve their communities.
The makeover by Premier and RK Dixon 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.
“We understand that it’s difficult for many non-profit organizations to find the money to purchase, install and manage office equipment,” Dixon said. “This is our way of acknowledging and thanking non-profits for the hard work they do in providing charitable services to our communities.”
Last year’s contest winner was Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Ill.
Registration is open now through 5 p.m. Oct. 9. RK Dixon and Premier then will ask the public to go online and vote for the non-profit they think has the biggest need for an office makeover.
In the Quad-Cities, RK Dixon and Premier are partnering with KWQC-TV for this year’s Make My Non-Profit Run Better contest.
