French Lick Winery Donation Request Guidelines
French Lick Winery is an active supporter of programs serving our local communities and is committed to continuing this support in the future. In an effort to manage our contributions in an equitable and efficient manner, all requests must be submitted using the FLW Donation Request Form and sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone or social media solicitations will not be accepted.
Due to the overwhelming number of deserving requests, we limit our donations to Orange County, Indiana organizations only and possibly alternate years of support for those groups. We also ask that organizations limit their requests to one (1) per year in order to help the greatest number of organizations. Requests must be received no later than 4 weeks prior to the event.
While we would like to respond favorably to all requests, the needs are far greater than our dedicated resources. Therefore it is not possible to for us to accommodate all requests. If your submitted request does not fully adhere to the guidelines below your request will not be considered.
Our company is particularly interested in events that support local charitable organizations that support the quality of life for our US Veterans, animal welfare, and agricultural development and agricultural education as relates to the wine industry.
In most cases, alcohol regulations will require that your organization secure a special event or temporary wine sales permit in order to accept a wine donation from a winery. Wine donations will not be made until proof of this permit is provided to French Lick Winery.
