- Requests must include 501(c)3 status information or the required background information on your non-profit or fundraising effort.
- Limit one request per event or organization per year, if possible.
- Requests MUST include an event date to be considered.
- After this form is completed, a determination will be made within 7 business days.
- Although not all requests can be filled, we do personally review every completed request that is submitted.
The Reading Coffee Company is a family-owned business which receives numerous donation requests. We wish we could support everyone and every cause, but we’re simply not able to contribute to all requests. There are several organizations with which both our company and our team have strong ties over many years.
We also try, when possible, to support causes brought to our attention by our loyal customers – friends we have made who have supported our business throughout the years. Returning their loyalty and supporting their non-profit interests is very important to us.
We review requests on a case by case basis. We love to hear from our customers via e-mail, Facebook and Instagram messages, but we need you to complete the online form found here if you’d like to be considered.
