Charitable Giving

Desert Wind is committed to supporting those organizations which seek to benefit the surrounding community. We have allocated a fixed amount of wine and accommodation packages to be donated to causes that closely align with our charitable giving values.

Please review our guidelines for charitable giving (below). If your organization meets our criteria for charitable giving, we invite you to submit an application using the Request for Charitable Donation form. We will only consider donation requests that have been submitted using our form.

In the event that we are unable to grant your request, or if your organization does not meet our guidelines for charitable giving, we invite you to review our special pricing on wine and accommodation packages for 501(c)3 organizations.

Guidelines for charitable giving:
  •     Desert Wind is only able to donate to 501(c)3 organizations.
  •     Preference will be given to those organizations which closely align with our mission for charitable giving.
  •     Desert Wind is unable to grant donations benefiting churches or schools. These organizations may, however, qualify for reduced pricing on wine and auction items.
  •     Requests for door prizes for company parties, class reunions and other types of events will not be granted.
  •     We will only consider donating auction items for live auctions; we cannot donate to silent auctions.
  •     Desert Wind will not deliver donated items. Recipients must either pick up their donation at the winery or pay shipping costs to an agreed-upon location.
  •     We cannot change dates for accommodation packages or extend expiration deadlines for gift certificates.

Desert Wind’s Mission for Charitable Giving

Desert Wind seeks to support those causes which effect positive change, specifically organizations committed to promoting environmental sustainability, Washington agriculture and agri-business, and education and services for migrant workers. Although Desert Wind donates to a wide range of charitable organizations, preference will be given to those organizations most closely aligned with our mission for charitable giving.
