Update: November '23
Dear Eugene/Springfield Community, the restaurant industry, Cornucopia included, continues to struggle with the aftereffects of the Covid Pandemic. As much as we love to support so many of the amazing organizations and non-profits in our area, we will be placing a pause on all requests for gift card donations, fundraisers and sponsorships for the next few months. Please do everything you can to support your favorite independent and locally owned restaurants and businesses. Thank you for your support and understanding.
Cornucopia loves and supports it's community! We seek to assist its growth and health in a variety of ways including donations and fundraisers. We are primarily focused on supporting the following local causes:
- schools & education
- kids & youth organizations
- arts & culture
- environment and habitat issues
- animals - domestic and wild
We donate one $35 gift card per week in order of request for auctions and off site fundraisers.
Cornucopia hosts one fundraiser per month on a first come, first serve basis. We prefer Mondays for these events. And will donate 15% of sales generated by your supporters who attend the fundraiser.
We will help you promote your event through social media and emails. In turn, we ask that you do all you can do to promote your fundraiser through your own channels. Of course, the more supporters that attend, the more funds that are raised. It's a win - win!
We've created this easy online application process to honor our community needs and align ourselves with causes that support our core values. Unfortunately, due to the large volume of requests, we are unable to support all that we receive. Out of respect for your time and ours, please review the details below to be sure you qualify for our assistance.
Use this form only. Applications submitted via email or hard copy might not make it to the necessary party for review. If your request is approved, we will contact you soon.
Please be Timely
Requests for assistance must be received at least 6 weeks prior to the event/donation date in order to be considered.
We will not provide charitable support for organizations in the following categories:
- Individuals (scholarships, stipends, fellowships, personal assistance);
- For-profit ventures;
- Religious groups for religious purposes;
- Capital campaigns, endowment funds or memorials;
- Lobbying, political or fraternal activities;
- Individual study, research or travel grants
Cornucopia will not support organizations that discriminate against a person or a group on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious belief.
