Donation Requests

Atlanta History Center supports hundreds of local nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations annually by donating Family Passes to assist in fundraising efforts. Due to the volume of the requests received, organizations must meet the following guidelines to be considered.

Donation requests for charitable events to support nonprofit organizations in the state of Georgia will be considered. Out-of-state requests cannot be fulfilled.

The purpose of the event must emulate the mission of Atlanta History Center.

Fundraisers to benefit capital expenditures, brick and mortar projects, technology improvements or a specific individual or individual family do not qualify as a charitable cause.

The following examples of charitable causes will be considered:

  • Historic Preservation
  • Health and Human Services
  • Public and Social Benefit
  • Environmental Issues
  • Animal Welfare and Wildlife Conservation

All donation requests must be submitted in writing on organization letterhead. A PDF of an actual letter, submitted via e-mail, is acceptable.

Requests must include the name of the nonprofit organization, 501(c)(3) IRS Determination Letter, date of the fundraiser, the purpose and beneficiary of fundraiser, contact name and address to which the donations will be sent. Incomplete requests will be returned.

Requests must be received at least 21 days prior to the event date. Community donations are processed twice a month.

One request per organization, per calendar year, will be considered.
