Guidelines

1. All requests for donations of cash, goods or services must be

submitted in writing at least 60 days prior to publicizing the event. The requested amount must be specified in each application. Eligible applicants must be a not-for-profit organization or educational institution. The organization must have a clear mission or goal, prove it is efficiently organized and provide a needed service to the Beckley area. Specifically, the quality of the program, its service to the public, the size and type of constituency it serves must be included. The organization’s financial accountability and fund-raising practices may also be reviewed.

2. All funding requests are restricted to a period of one year. Premier Pharmacy & Wellness reserves the right to deny all requests for long-term commitments or multiple-year pledges. Area organizations may submit an annual funding request for the same project, however, approval for funding in a specific calendar year does not guarantee a charitable gift will be awarded in subsequent years. In addition, gifts may not be awarded at the same funding level as in previous years.

4. Preference is given to groups and organizations that can:

• Can demonstrate broad community support and involvement.

• Are working for the benefit of a wide range of stakeholders.

• Can demonstrate how the money or in-kind donation is to be spent and the expected outcome of the event.

• Can commit to acknowledging the Pharmacy’s contribution through the promotional banners, brochures, and posters. The Pharmacy’s logo should be included on

promotional materials as appropriate.

• Can commit to acknowledging the Pharmacy’s contribution through local media.

• Can commit to providing the Pharmacy with a letter following the holding of the event that summarizes the outcomes and benefits.
