How do I submit a request for funding for my organization?
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 and Leavenworth, Kan.; and Center, Texas. Read more about how Hallmark makes funding decisions in the Community Involvement Program Guidelines and follow steps for how to apply online.
How do I request help from Hallmark volunteers for my organization?
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.
Will Hallmark donate products to my organization?
Hallmark does not contribute products for single occasions or fundraising activities such as raffles, auctions, prizes or guest bags. We currently donate 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.
Independent retailers determine how they wish to donate and participate in their local communities.
Will Hallmark sponsor my organization’s fundraising event?
We are only able to accept fundraising event sponsorship applications for organizations based in the Kansas City area. We are not usually interested in lead or title sponsorship benefits for marketing or increased exposure for the company. Read more about how to apply for fundraising event sponsorship.
