Charitable Contributions Guidelines

Alphia, and its family of companies, strives to improve the lives of the people and pets in our communities. While many worthy and charitable causes exist, our specific focus in corporate charitable giving is targeted partnerships aligned to our specific corporate mission. The guidelines and targeted areas of focus below qualify for review and consideration of charitable support:

  • Child hunger or homelessness
  • Pet hunger or homelessness
  • Organizations dedicated to improving the lives of people and animals living in Alphia communities.

In addition to volunteer resources, there are instances in which support is provided in the form of monetary gifts, gift cards, and gifts in-kind. Significant partnership projects and capital requests are by invitation only. Requests from individuals, families, and other sources will not be accepted.

Support requests are reviewed to ensure alignment with community goals and our corporate giving priorities.

To be considered, the requesting organization must:

  • Be a 501(c)3 public nonprofit charity or a state/government accredited school.
  • Serve areas in which we have offices or plant facilities (Hilmar, CA; Baxter Springs, KS; Bern, KS; Lawrence, KS; Pawnee City, NE; Hazleton, PA; Brownwood, TX; Clearfield, UT; Ogden, UT; Woodland, WA).
