Ehrlich Toyota is donating $6,000 each month to local organizations and causes with the first place organization receiving $3,500! Two organizations will be decided via social media contest and one cause chosen by Ehrlich Toyota based on hardship application or monthly themes and contests at dealer’s discretion. Each organization can win 3 times during the calendar year!! This is going to be huge for local organizations such as not-for-profits, school groups, youth athletics, faith groups, arts education & more!
Organization must be located in and directly benefit Northern Colorado.
Organization must register with and be accepted by Ehrlich Toyota to be part of the program. Once an organization is accepted, they will be eligible for participation each month starting with the following month.
HOW IT WORKS

FACEBOOK VOTING: Facebook users can name the registered organization of their choice in the comments of the Ehrlich Cares posts for that month. Each Facebook user can only vote one time per day. Each comment counts as one vote in the contest.
TEXT VOTING: Text the name of the registered organization of your choice to (970) 573-6043. One text vote per day per phone number. Each text counts as one vote in the contest.
Buy a Car – 100 votes
Demo a Car – 50 votes
Service Completed – 50 votes
Service Estimate – 25 votes
Prize 1 - $3,500: Organization with most votes. Limited to once per calendar year.
Prize 2 - $1,500: Random drawing, each vote gives an organization a better chance of winning.
Prize 3 - $1,000: Any person(s) or organization(s) chosen by Ehrlich Toyota based on hardship application or monthly themes and contests at dealer’s discretion.
Each month, Ehrlich Toyota will announce the winners on Facebook and contact the persons and organizations to claim their prize. Monthly prizes will total $6,000 each month. Each organization can win a maximum of three times per calendar year.

I’m registered, now what do I do to “enter” Ehrlich Cares each month?
At the beginning of each month, Ehrlich Toyota will create a post on the Ehrlich Toyota Facebook page asking you to “comment” on the organization/cause that you would like to see win (any prize level) for the month. Your organization must be registered in order to be eligible for the current month.
Once you are registered, you’re automatically registered for the Ehrlich Cares program. In order to participate in the month contest, you need to “comment” on the Ehrlich Toyota Facebook post to “enter” the monthly contest. Below is an example of the Facebook post, just comment with your organization's name and you’re entered for the current month!
“Comment” in the posting and you are entered for the month, it’s that easy!
How does my organization or cause earn votes each month?
To earn votes, tag your friends, organization, followers, anyone you know, to have them comment with the organization name in the Ehrlich Toyota Facebook posting for Ehrlich Cares that month. Each comment that contains your organization name is one “vote.”
Every organization or person is allowed to vote one time a day. So vote early and vote often!
Is anyone eligible or do I have a registered non-profit organization?
There are no requirements for you to participate in Ehrlich Cares. Whether you’re a family, individual, organization (including causes for children, pets, Veterans, etc.) Ehrlich Cares is for anyone who can benefit from the funds being provided by Ehrlich Cares to the Northern Colorado community.
It’s the 15th of the month and my organization has an event on the 20th of the same month, can I register now for that specific event?
In order to maintain consistency, all organizations must be registered by the end of the prior month to be considered for the current month contest. For example, if you register on the 15th of January, your organization will be eligible for all prizes beginning February 1st going forward.
Do I have to “register” every month?
No, once your organization or cause is registered, you are automatically registered for all levels of the Ehrlich Cares program. There is no need to “re-register” every month.
In order to be considered for the current month prizes, your organization (or any individual) must post on the Ehrlich Toyota Facebook page posting for the qualifying Ehrlich Cares posting (see FAQ #1 for more details on voting).
Can you give me more details on the “On-Site Voting?” I’m confused!
Of course! Ask any Ehrlich team member to complete an Ehrlich Cares voting card if you are on-site and complete any of the activities below!
Buy a Car – 100 votes Purchase or lease any new or used vehicle from Ehrlich Toyota and the registered organization of your choice will receive additional votes for that month.
Demo a Car – 50 votes If a friend or family member purchases a vehicle, you will earn additional votes to the cause of your choice.
Service Completed – 50 votes Have your vehicle serviced at Ehrlich Toyota and you will earn votes to the cause of your choice.
Service Estimate – 25 votes Come into Ehrlich Toyota and have a written estimate for service repairs and you will earn votes for the organization of your choice.
How do you determine the winner?
At the end of each month (on the 30th) Ehrlich Toyota will tally all “comments” and “onsite voting” cares for all registered organizations. The organization (cause or individual) with the most votes will win the $3,500 prize for that month. All winners (including 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize) will be contacted directly and announced on Facebook! Ehrlich Toyota will contact the organization directly using the contact information provided on the registration form.
How many times can an organization, cause or individual win?
All registered organizations, individuals or causes can win 1st prize one (1) time a 12-month time period.
For example, an organization can win the 1st place prize of $3,500 one (1) time, or win 1st place once and 2nd place twice within a 12-month time period.
Are there any financial requirements to win Ehrlich Cares?
No, any Northern Colorado organization, cause or individual is eligible for Ehrlich Cares. If you have any questions, please contact Paul Atkinson (email@example.com).
What makes me or my organization eligible for the $1,000 prize?
registered person or organization is eligible for the $1,000 prize.
Ehrlich Toyota will evaluate these hardship applications or monthly
themes and/or contests each month. If you have a specific situation that
you would like us to consider for hardship, please send a brief synopsis of the request (along with your application) to Paul Atkinson (firstname.lastname@example.org). All submissions must be submitted to Ehrlich Toyota before the end of the current month to be considered for the next month.
