Community Support/Applying for a Donation
Requesting an In-Kind or Silent Auction Donation
Donations Update Winter 2023:
Due to the impact of the pandemic, we were unable to accept donation requests from Spring, 2020 through Spring 2021. As we continue to recover financially and adapt to the current environment, we are again reviewing requests though unfortunately, we have not been able to return to the same level of donations as pre-pandemic. Please don't hesitate to apply, but know that we will unfortunately need to be quite particular for some time in what we are able to approve. We will respond and let you know of our decision either way.
Thank you for understanding and sticking with us!
One of the ways we offer support to each store’s community is by donating in-kind donations to small, local organizations and groups that are nearby. In 2019 alone, we donated to 850 local organizations and gave away over $56,000 of ice cream, merchandise, and gift cards! Ice Cream donations are intended for groups of 100 people or less and will include cups, spoons, napkins, and ice cream scoops along with the ice cream. Everything must be picked up by someone from your group at a date and time of your choice that we will schedule with you in advance. Gift Cards or other raffle/auction items will be mailed to you directly.
If you would like J.P. Licks to donate an item to your fundraiser or group, please check out the below qualifications:
1. The event you are requesting a donation for must be at least 6 weeks away.
2. Your group or organization must give back to or support your local community in some way.
3. If you are having a fundraiser, that money should benefit your local community as well (Sorry, no giant corporations or nationwide organizations!)
