Truckee River Winery receives many donation requests daily. We ask that all donation requests are submitted via email, with a letter that details the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the event in question and any/all donation options. We review all donation requests on Mondays to determine if they meet our criteria requirements and reply accordingly.
*Please note that as the primary function of our business is alcohol sales, we do not think it appropriate to donate to children's or youth organizations.
