Giving Back to the Community
These guidelines have been established to assist you with your request for a charitable donation from the Fort Vancouver National Trust, a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. Please review these guidelines prior to submitting your request:
Merchandise Requests – The Fort Vancouver National Trust extends donations of merchandise from the Fort Vancouver Bookstore on a very limited basis. Donations of gift certificates for merchandise are NOT provided.
Funding Priorities - To help with reviewing requests for contributions, priority support is provided to organizations that are tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Non 501 (c)(3) organizations would be considered on a case-by-case basis.
What is NOT funded - Requests that ask for:
- Cash sponsorships,
- Support of individuals, including student exchange/travel programs, family reunions, etc.,
- Conferences and seminars,
- Capital campaigns; construction and renovation projects,
- Membership, religious, political, labor, or fraternal organizations
If your organization falls within the funding criteria, please complete the online request form.
No telephoned, mailed, faxed, or e-mailed requests will be considered.
If funding is available and your request is selected for further consideration, you will be contacted by a Fort Vancouver National Trust representative. Due to the volume of requests for donations received, we are unable to respond personally to telephoned, mailed, faxed, and e-mailed inquiries regarding the status of requests.
