WHEN IS THE AGENCY FEE DUE?
Partner agency fees are due within 30 days of the annual invoice being sent. We know funding, fundraisers, donors, etc. could be seasonal or cyclical, so if you have an unusual extenuating circumstance, reach out so we can talk. We also don’t mind if someone else pays your annual fee on behalf of your organization. We’ve seen groups have great success asking a corporate sponsor, volunteer or superstar donor to cover the agency fee for a year. What a great way to spread awareness of diaper need and give a donor something really special and meaningful to fund. (We also provide your agency with data around diaper distribution outcomes, making it easy for you to share the impact with those donors at the end of the year! See below for more information on data.)
HOW MANY DIAPERS WILL MY CLIENTS GET EACH MONTH?
Children will receive either 60 diapers (sizes 3 through 6) or 80 diapers (sizes N through 2) each month. Children can receive diapers until their 3rd birthday.
HOW ARE THE DIAPERS PACKAGED?
We wrap bundles of 30 or 40 diapers in plastic wrap with a size label on each one. Each child gets 2 bundles (60-80 diapers) each month. We then put the bundles in reusable bags so it’s easier for you to transport.
HOW, WHERE, AND WHEN DO I GET THE DIAPERS FOR MY CLIENTS EACH MONTH?
HOW: Each partner agency is responsible for picking up their diapers from Nebraska Diaper Bank’s warehouse each month.
WHERE: We are located at 9090 F St, Omaha, NE 68127
WHEN: You will pick diapers up once a month. Once you’re an active agency you’ll be placed in a pickup group with a specific pickup time.
DO YOU HAVE ANY DATA AROUND DIAPER DISTRIBUTION OUTCOMES?
We sure do! We will provide you with an Impact Survey, to be completed by your clients once a year. We collect and analyze that data at the end of the year and we send you a report on the diaper outcomes for YOUR agency. You’ll be able to show exactly how providing diapers has helped your clients, in their own words.
HOW DO I SIGN UP KIDS TO GET DIAPERS?
Once you’re approved as a partner agency you will be provided with a monthly order form to order diapers for your clients each month. And don’t worry–we’ll walk you through it all!
CAN YOU DELIVER MY DIAPER ORDER?
At this time, we are not able to offer delivery for orders.
DO YOU HAVE SOMEONE IN MIND RIGHT NOW THAT NEEDS HELP?
A lot of organizations want to become partners with us because they personally know someone in need of diapers right now. You can search through our current agencies to get someone connected with diapers.
WHAT IF I’M NOT SURE I WANT TO BECOME A PARTNER AGENCY?
No worries! Feel free to email our Program Manager at Dev@nebraskadiaperbank.org with any additional questions you may have. We can also set up a time to chat before you fill out the application to make sure our agencies would be a good fit.
