Greenhouse Donation Policy

Greenhouse appreciates the support we receive from local community service providers and we believe it is our duty to reciprocate. We return a portion of our revenue to the community by donating to 501(c)(3)-designated Whatcom County nonprofits and service organizations when requests fit within our budget and meet established criteria.

Preference will be given to organizations that promote downtown Bellingham, local arts, and solutions to social problems that compromise our community’s quality of life.

We strongly prefer to donate products or gift certificates that have the potential to generate more revenue for organizations via fund-raising events, rather than donations that will go directly to recipients.

We do not make donations to for-profit businesses, or for the enrichment of other organizations' employees.

We determine our ability to make donations based on a monthly budget. Applications received less than 30 days prior to the event date will not be considered. We appreciate your understanding.

Any group believing that it complies with this policy and seeking a donation must submit a Greenhouse Donation Request Form (CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD PDF). Forms must be submitted in person or by mail to our store manager for approval. Please make sure to attach a copy of your 501(c)(3) designation if applicable.
