Donation Request Guidelines

We make decisions about donations based our core values as a company.

Are you requesting a donation for an environmental initiative? We look for projects that reduce carbon footprints, actively take on waste reduction and recycling, provide education on climate change, and create a more sustainable world.

Is your request for a local, place-based project? We support local farmers, foodies, foragers and chefs, and care about providing good food to the people of this bioregion, treating plants and animals right, and offering educational opportunities around local food.

Would our donation contribute to income equality? We support projects that work to close the growing gap between rich and poor, and initiatives that support people marginalized by poverty.

Do you share community with us? We support projects happening in our neighborhood that make life more brilliant for us all, and have a soft spot for local arts programs, schools, and nonprofits that make a positive impact in the community.

Please keep in mind that the majority of the donations we can offer are gift cards and other door/raffle prizes. We are also sometimes able to offer ice cream to events that want to scoop/serve themselves and, occasionally, we can provide a team to help with scooping.

All donation requests should be made at least 2 weeks ahead of time. If you’re requesting a team of scoopers for your event, we need at least 3-4 weeks of notice. Please keep in mind, we’re more likely to be able to meet your request if you don’t need a team of scoopers. Also, we have a fixed budget for donations each month which means we may not be able to fulfil your request.

You made it this far! Please fill out this form to complete your donation request.
