Donation Requests


Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization and is pleased to support many community organizations and schools each year by donating tickets or other items for fundraising purposes. We consider our community to be our most valuable partner and want to help out in whatever way we can.

 

Given the large number of requests, donations are limited and must meet specific criteria. Please understand that Blithewold relies on admissions revenue to support operations and preservation work. We will evaluate each request and approve the type of donation on a case-by-case basis.

Each non-profit organization or school is eligible to receive one donation per calendar year. As multiple events sometimes benefit the same organization, please be advised that a donation may already have been issued through another event. To make your donation request, please use our online form. Requests will be processed quarterly.

Non-profit organizations and schools will be considered for a donation of admission passes if the following Donation Guidelines are met:

  • Your organization must be a nonprofit or a school and must be using Blithewold tickets as a fundraising item.
  • School donations must go directly to support the educational programs of the applying school.
  • A single point of contact, email and mailing address must be provided.
  • Non-profit organizations must have a current IRS 501 (c)(3) determination letter available if requested
  • A photocopy of current U.S. Treasury tax exempt 501(c)(3) letter must be available if requested.
  • We may ask that a written request be submitted via USPS on the organization’s formal letterhead

Contributions will not be made to the following:

  • Political fundraisers or organizations that are perceived to be political in any way
  • Third party fundraisers or sales promotions.

  • Learn something new — on fertilization (Jan 23, '15)
    When we get busy I’m apt to forget my quest to learn something new every day. But during the winter we have the time and plenty of opportunities in the way of classes, lectures, symposiums, trade and garden shows to make a habit of it again. And it’s a treat whether I’m learning something totally […]
  • What to do when it’s January-ish (Jan 16, '15)
    So far, to me, this winter has not seemed as winter-ish as winter usually is. Of course, I’m knocking wood as I say that. Although I love the way a good layer of snow blankets the landscape (and insulates our plants), I’m grateful to not have to shovel or trudge over and through giant banks […]
  • Warming up (Jan 09, '15)
    A lot of people ask us what we do here in the winter. –A particularly legitimate question when the weather outside is as unpleasant as it has been this week as temperatures plunged and the wind whipped. We always answer, “a lot.” And luckily for Gail, Betsy, and me, most of it is inside-work. Holidays behind […]
