Schram Vineyards is a family run business and small production winery. We are a proud supporter of many local organizations and fundraising events throughout the Twin Cities and in our local community. We understand donations are a part of continuing the betterment of our community and we are proud to be a contributor to many organizations and fundraising efforts year after year.
Due to the high volume of requests, we are not able to respond to all requests as we average about 3-5 donation requests a day. Requests may not be made in person. Please consider our guidelines before emailing your request.
Donations requests must be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All requests must have the following information to be considered:
- Your organization’s non-profit Tax ID#
- Date, time, and place of event
- What the donation is to be used for (silent auction, live auction, raffle prizes, etc.)
- How Schram Vineyards or Schram Haus will be marketed at the event
- The “Donation Request” must be received no later than four weeks before the date of the event.
- Submitting a donation request per the above guidelines does not guarantee a donation.
