What Is Griz Jail?


Griz Days Supporting Community Non-Profit Groups

In an effort to have Griz Days festivities more closely connected with the community and its non-profit organizations, the Griz Jail and Most Wanted Program is back again!

Through this opportunity organizations and businesses are invited to “jail” and have one their employees/members to be one of Griz Days MOST WANTED. The organization, with promotional and logistical support from the Griz Days Committee, will then raise money to pay “the bail” through various fundraising activities - the funds raised will be donated to a local non-profit organization of their choice.


  1. Your business/organization chooses a local non-profit organization it would like to support

  2. Your business/organization chooses an employee/member to be your MOST WANTED (a person with a high profile in the community or a new manager/employee you want to introduce to the community)

  3. Set the Bail amount (this is your fundraising target and is the amount you think your organization can raise in the time frame)

  4. Between March 2-7 your organization engages the community in

  5. fundraising activities – ideas range from donation jars on

  6. business counters or partner with another venue (restaurants/

  7. pubs) offer specials, host virtual events, Facebook live promotions
