Donation Requests

We review donations on a monthly basis. To be considered for a donation, your donation application must be received by 9 a.m. on the 15th of the month prior to the month that your event takes place. For example, if your event takes place on March 31st, you must submit your donation application by February 15th. In our effort to be fair and consistent, we cannot make exceptions to this schedule.

If we are able to fulfill your donation request, you will be notified by the first of the month that your event takes place. (For example, if your event takes place on March 7th, you will be notified by March 1st.) We will only contact you if we are able to fulfill your donation request. While we understand that your request is important to you, due to the volume of requests we receive we will not be able to respond to every application.
