Corporate Giving Policy 

 

Whether it’s participating in local food drives, donating zip-line tours or ski lift tickets/passes to fundraisers or auctions,  hosting events, or providing individual sponsorships,  Berkshire East is an active participant in the local community that sustains us.

 

We earnestly consider each donation request when made by a local non-profit program or organization.   Please note that we are unable to support fundraisers that benefit a single person.  Our primary focus is to commit and donate to local charitable organizations (within a 50 mile radius) such as schools and other organizations that we have a business relationship with.  We also focus our support to various programs that enrich the communities where our guests and employees live and work.   We are particularly interested in supporting groups that work to  reduce “at risk” behaviors, increase participation in youth sports and athletics, and expand awareness for the arts, music and education.  Berkshire East is also an active supporter of environmental organizations working to conserve our ecological legacy.

To apply for a donation or assistance, we ask that you submit your request in writing at least 30 days prior to the date the donation is needed.  Your request should include a brief summary of your organization and how you work to benefit the community at large.  Please include the specific type of assistance you are looking for as well as your organizations proper tax-exempt status. Your request should include the name of the event as well as the date on which it will take place.  We also ask that you provide a contact person’s name, phone number, e-mail address and your mailing address.

Please note that we receive hundreds of requests for corporate donations and assistance throughout the year. Due to the sheer volume of requests received, it’s impossible to respond to and donate to every request.   We do have limitations on the number of events that we can support, and ask that you please send your requests only if it falls within our corporate giving policy.  Any donation request granted by us should not be considered as a future commitment of our support, as it is our goal to support as many different organizations as possible.
