Donation Policy – KC Wineworks

Thank you for considering KC Wineworks for your upcoming fundraising event! We are honored you value our products as a worthwhile addition to your event. We are proud to support a variety of local non-profit organizations. Rather than in-kind donations of wine, we will donate a Gift Certificate for use at our winery. KC Wineworks does not offer cash sponsorships.

We want to work with you and your nonprofit group to build a better community through donations that support worthwhile charitable activities where we live and work. If you are interested in receiving a donation for your nonprofit, please review the donation criteria below. If your request meets these, fill out the Donation Request Form for consideration.
