BWG Donation Policy

Blue Wind Gourmet supports many local organizations:

We would like to extend our thanks to people in the community who have, through their work for or with Blue Wind,  

generously contributed their time and talents to benefit the local Charities/Programs that Blue Wind supports.

Blue Wind supports community organizations that directly benefit our community

and have the broadest impact on the neediest.  

Those organizations include shelters, food banks, scholarship funds and emergency rescue services.

Many times we receive duplicate donation requests for the same organization.

Please have a representative contact us directly with all the events for the year. 

This way we can choose the events our business model best supports. 

We do not donate towards door prizes, volunteer appreciation gifts, sport teams, churches, etc.. 

While we appreciate and recognize those organizations' contributions to our community, 

we do make a concerted effort to focus our support where we feel it will have the most direct impact.

While we believe that most requests are honorable, past misrepresentations by some organizations have forced us to require the above information.

All of the money we set aside for charitable donation comes from the catering portion of Blue Wind's business. 

Therefore, your support in offering us the opportunity to bid on your group's events only enhances our ability to give back.
