  1. 1. Healthcare and Relief
  2. 2. Education and Development of Children
  3. 3. Faith Based Initiatives
  4. 4. Arts and Culture
  5. 5. The Environment

Community organizations that provide services in these areas may apply for the following types of support from James Avery:

  1. A. Contributions of our product to be used for fundraising at events, such as silent and live auctions, allows us to support hundreds of organizations annually
  2. B. Sponsorship of special events that support the organization’s work in the community
  3. C. Cash contributions for specific programs

GUIDELINES

We give generously to as many community organizations as we can, but it is impossible to fulfill every request we receive. Therefore we will only consider organizations and programs that meet the following guidelines

MANDATORY REQUIREMENTS

  • • Must serve the community in one or more of the five areas of emphasis listed above
  • • Must be recognized as a 501(c)(3) or similar tax-exempt organization
  • • Must be located in a community where we have retail locations or major facilities
  • • Must submit a completed application, along with all required materials, in order to be considered for support

OTHER GUIDELINES

  • • We prefer supporting specific programs that provide direct services to beneficiaries which are focused on assisting the broadest spectrum of people in the communities we serve
  • • We prefer to support organizations that have clearly stated objectives, long range planning and active participation from a governing board of directors
  • • Cash contribution requests may be considered, but are limited
  • • When providing jewelry as an in-kind contribution, the selection of the particular piece is solely at the discretion of James Avery
  • • To allow for adequate time for review and response, submit your request a minimum of 45 days prior to the date of your event

LIMITATIONS

  • • Organizations may apply for support only once in any one 12-month period
  • • Since we receive so many requests and we want to help as many groups as possible, past support does not guarantee future support
  • • Cash contributions and in-kind donations are not normally given to support operating expenses, travel and conferences of any kind, scholarship funds, endowments or past operating deficits
  • • We are not currently able to make contributions to schools for project graduation, prom-related events, school teams, booster clubs, or extra-curricular clubs and organizations
  • • We do not support individuals for any purpose
  • • We will support faith based organizations when they demonstrate that the request is related to providing direct community service in one of the five areas of emphasis listed above
