How to Request a Donation

In order to be considered by the Contributions Committee, all donation requests must:

  • Be submitted in writing at least 30 days prior to the date the donation is needed
  • Provide the name of the event as well as the date on which it will take place
  • Provide proper tax-exempt status
  • Provide a brief summary of the organization and how it benefits the individuals it serves and the community at large
  • Provide a brief summary of the function at which the donated item(s) will be used to generate funds
  • Be specific with regard to item(s) requested (with the understanding that the Committee will use this only as a guideline, but will not be restricted by or limited to the requested item(s) and may choose a different item, if any)
  •  Indicate how the funds generated by the donated item(s) will be used by the organization
  • Include contact person’s name, phone number, mailing address, and email address (if available)

Please note that any donation request not meeting all of the above criteria is subject to possible automatic denial.
