Donations Process FAQs

  • How far in advance do I need to make my request?

    Our employee-owners meet monthly to review requests. Submitting a complete application 45 days before your event insures we can thoroughly review it.

  • Do I have to complete the online application?

    Yes. We receive thousands of requests each year. Our online application insures the consistency of requests while keeping the process efficient.

  • Can I go to my local store for support?

    Yes. On any request, we ask that it’s tied back to the store where the requestor shops. Store directors know their communities and the organizations whose missions align with ours. If your request is greater than what your local store can provide, the store director will direct you to our online application. The Donations Committee relies on the input from store directors when making its decisions. 

  • Can I email the application?

    All email inquiries are directed to the online application.

  • How will I know the status of my application?

    You’ll receive an email confirming receipt of your application. Later you hear from us by email or phone call if your request for funding has been approved, declined or deferred.

  • Who reviews the online requests?

    Our Donations Committee reviews all requests. This group is made up of a cross section of our employee owners. They meet monthly to review requests and recommend funding.  Once granted, our Public Relations Department works with the organization on implementation.

    Unfortunately we are unable to donate to:

    • Individuals
    • Athletic or competition teams
    • Operating expenses
    • School trips
    • Medical expenses
    • Debt reduction
