Cover Club

In the spring of 2020, with our factory shut down and our entire team at home, there was only one thing we could ship from our humble garage setups: Cover Sets. Having just wrapped up our most popular holiday season yet, there were more Nuggeteers than ever looking to configure and color-block their Nuggets with additional colors, and we thought that excitement could be channeled to the countless nonprofits dealing with never-before-seen strain under Covid-19.

So, we tried something new: a contest that would let customers buy $10 tickets (as many as they wanted, increasing their odds) for the old, retired Cover Sets that we had on hand — with 100% of proceeds benefiting a nonprofit partner.

What started as a creative solution to an unprecedented problem has turned into a staple of our community engagement. With the help of customers, we’ve since raised over $500,000! for organizations with missions ranging from maternal health, to voting rights, to childhood education. We now match up to $25,000 of customer fundraising in each Cover Club, magnifying the impact.

How Cover Club Works

At Nugget, we're big kids at heart who can't resist fun and games, which is why we combine raising funds for non-profits with a contest to win Nuggety prizes. It's simple:

  • Nugget announces a Cover Club, including the latest prizes.
  • Nuggeteers purchase tickets for the prizes they are interested in. Each ticket is a separate entry and 100% of the proceeds benefitting a non-profit partner!
  • A handful of winning tickets are selected, with winners notified via Instagram and email.

Follow along @nuggetcoverclub and @nuggetcomfort for all the latest news fit to cover.
