Hallmark community involvement and charitable support starts with our hometowns. These include our corporate headquarters in Kansas City, Mo., as well as locations where we operate production and distribution facilities — Liberty, Mo.; Lawrence, Leavenworth and Topeka, Kan.; Enfield, Conn.; Metamora, Ill.; Columbus, Ga.; and Center, Texas.

In cities where Hallmark operates facilities, organizations may request assistance in recruiting Hallmark employees for board membership, program services, and other meaningful volunteer experiences. We cannot guarantee that Hallmark employees will agree to volunteer; volunteering is an individual, personal decision made by each employee. Read more about how to apply for volunteer assistance.
Hallmark does not contribute products for single occasions or fundraising activities such as raffles, auctions, prizes or guest bags. Hallmark currently donates products through partnerships with around 150 non-profit organizations that can manage the re-distribution of large quantities to agencies addressing emergency, education and human service needs. We are not accepting applications for new product donation requests at this time.
Hallmark only accepts fundraising event sponsorship applications for organizations based in the Kansas City area, and generally is not interested in lead or title sponsorship benefits for the purpose of marketing or increased exposure for the company.
