PRF is a great supporter of the local community, and is committed to supporting its organizations. Due to the festival season timeline, donations requests are only available to be submitted December 1 through March 31. If you are interested in seeking a donation for your organization, please return within those dates to complete the form and PRF will make every effort to reply to all submissions in a timely manner. All donation requests must be received via the donation request form on this site.
Many factors are included in the evaluation of requests, and not all requests can be honored. Though there are a large number of worthy organizations, PRF is not able to contribute to every campaign. A denial of a request does not reflect on the worthiness of an organization, but rather the limits of what PRF is able to give.
