Donation Request Information

Donation Opportunity Policy

Virtually not a week goes by without a handful of donation and product requests that while legitimate, totally outweigh our ability to satisfy. After looking at the stack of requests from June-July 2013 (FYI: easily over $3,000) we have reconfigured our donation policy. Our new policy will require more active participation by donation seekers, but will also allow us to increase our total donations to the community.We continue to take a very strong stand that it is important to give back to the community that supports us! We have made some hard choices to focus our donation support. 

Our priority focus areas 

  1. Youth Sports, Academics and Activities -With a special focus on traditionally underfunded activities like ladies sports program. 
  2. Care/Support for the less fortunate members of our community

Fundraising/Donation Programs we offer:

  1. Recycle Floral Vases/Containers for $$$ (a lot easier and more profitable than selling candy) 
  2. Sell our Parking Lot for Football and Events (Yes it requires work, but we had one local basketball coach earn over $400 in 3 hours all by himself) 
  3. Social media challenges using facebook, Twitter and SnapChat to earn direct $$$. (These are limited) 
  4. Special rebate on purchases program. (Special shopping weeks/days where you collect receipts from Tara Florist purchases and turn in for % rebates) 

We will be happy to talk with your organization about these opportunities. 

Please allow a minimum of 30 days for requests to be processed. We allocate one day per month to consider requests. We expect all organizations/groups we support to be a 501c3 certified organization or other certified non-profit.While we have a firm commitment to "give back" to our community, please realize we also have limited resources and are just unable to support every request no matter how valid the need.
