J.P. Licks supports local charities, schools, and non-profit organizations in the communities local to our stores through in-kind donations of ice cream, coupons, or gift certificates. We receive thousands of donation requests, and they increase in number each year -- due to this, we have chosen to really prioritize helping small, local organizations and schools. Please understand that, even if we may have donated to your charity in the past, if your organization does not fit this profile, or if it is too far away from the neighborhoods local to our stores, we likely will not be able to donate at this time.
Boston Marathon participants: Believe it or not, we have already granted over 150 requests for individuals running the Boston Marathon. You are welcome to still submit a request, but please understand that if you are fundraising for a large, corporate entity we may not approve your request, though we admire you all greatly for your strength and your commendable fundraising efforts!
(Please note when requesting ice cream donations that donated ice cream is only available in 2 gallon tubs, must be picked up by someone from your organization, and donated toppings or delivery are not available.)
Please note that requests are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. We'll do our best to get back to you within 10 business days, but your event must be at least 2 weeks from the date of your request for us to be able to process and fulfill it in time. Please allow extra time when inquiring for event participation, sponsorships, or unique opportunities as these decisions take longer. Unfortunately, though we try our best, we cannot grant all requests.
