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.

    Given how many wonderful winter-blooming houseplants there are in the world, I find it sort of astonishing that poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is listed as the best selling houseplant in the US and Canada. But I suppose that fact must be chalked up to a couple things: Poinsettia are festive and fun. What’s not to love about […]
  • Goodnight gardens (Dec 05, '14)
    After some festive weeks spent preparing for our Christmas display and this week’s wreath workshops, it was pure pleasure to be out in the gardens again. Despite the chill that crept into fingers and toes. Earlier this fall we got a jump on what’s commonly known as “putting the gardens to bed”. — I must have already […]
  • Greenhouse thanksgiving (Nov 24, '14)
    No doubt about it, I have a lot to be thankful for. It might seem trivial compared to how grateful I am for things like my health and the amazing friends I’ve made here at Blithewold — and I also don’t mean to gloat — but I thank my lucky stars just about every time I […]
