Rook Coffee Donation Request Form Guidelines

We truly love giving back to our community! While much of our fundraising efforts go to supporting The Rook Run, we work to give all local organizations the opportunity to receive a contribution. In the case that we can accommodate other local 501(c)3 charities or fundraisers, please fill out the below documentation.

Please note the following:

  • We can only give to tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations as defined by IRS Code 501 (c)3.
  • We offer donations of gift certificates and products only. Sorry, no donations in the form of monetary contributions.
  • Due to budgetary constraints, we can only approve a limited number of the many donation request applications received.
  • We cannot offer donations to individuals, political or religious organizations for direct religious purposes.
  • We cannot support organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation.
  • Past support does not guarantee future support.
  • To give all organizations the opportunity to receive a donation, we cannot approve more than one application per organization each year.

Please submit your applications by following the below required guidelines:
