We welcome the opportunity to contribute to your organization but, as you can imagine, we receive many requests for donations. To be fair and thoughtful we have formalized a review process with criteria that encourages true and meaningful engagement to make a difference in our community by supporting worthy causes. We review these requests on a monthly basis to allow ample time for this conversation. Following is the background as to how Harbor Sweets reviews and makes giving decisions.
What We Contribute
Harbor Sweets contributes 5% of our pre-tax profits to community outreach. These requests are reviewed annually and decisions are made in April.
Throughout the year, we provide product donation when the cause is in harmony with our business philosophies and the requesting organization has shown how Harbor Sweets’ support would be made public to benefit our business. Any marketing related requests are handled separately and do not fall under charitable contributions.
Qualified Donation Recipients
Harbor Sweets shows preference to registered 501(c3) groups. We evaluate partnerships for the potential to create outcomes that are measured for their favorable impact to a shared and valued constituency.
