Non-Profit Guidelines and Criteria
Throughout the year we receive numerous requests for support from a wide range of deserving organizations. Unfortunately we are unable to fulfill all requests and therefore we have established guidelines and criteria to help us evaluate each request. We are committed to supporting as many groups as possible.
Non-Profits and Donations
We'll help you raise awareness! If you are a local non-profit organization, you have an opportunity to book a complimentary space at Richmond Centre. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Raising funds for your organization can be a challenge. We may be able to help through providing a donation for your fundraising event. However please note that we do receive numerous requests each week, and we are unable to support all the wonderful organizations that are working to improve our community.
In order for us to support as many organizations as possible, please review the following criteria:
Organizations must be local non-profit organizations, with a focus on arts & culture, environment, health & wellness or youth (political parties, religious groups, individual pursuits and private foundations, lobbying or advocacy groups, and for-profit organizations are ineligible);
