The Peoria Rivermen Hockey Club has a longstanding tradition of building alliances with non-profit organizations and contributing fundraising efforts to assist various residents of Central Illinois. From teaming with different national charities to hosting more localized fundraising events at our games. The Rivermen are proud of their community ties and are happy to review all fundraising requests. Submitting a request is no guarantee of fulfillment based on the available assets the organization is willing to donate back over the course of one season. On average, the Rivermen receive well in excess of 100-150 requests for donations each month and every month into the office.
If you would like the Rivermen to consider your fundraising endeavor, please review the following guidelines:
Please send an envelope with your organization’s letterhead to the Rivermen office (see address below) at least one month prior to your event and include contact information. Monthly allocation of donations depends upon time they were sent in and the number of requests received in that months’ time period approved by the committee.
Please supply with your request a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope) to where you want your donation sent to if you are chosen for a donation.
Please specify whether the fundraising endeavor is a live auction, a silent auction, a raffle item, a door prize, or other.
Please specify where the event will be held, how many people will attend, and how the proceeds will be used from the donated item you possible would receive from the Rivermen.
Requests are sorted and categorized with our Charitable Donations Committee every 2-4 weeks depending upon game schedule. The Rivermen are unable to fulfill every single request, and preference is given to local non-profit organizations. PLEASE DO NOT CALL INQUIRING ABOUT YOUR REQUEST, IF YOUR ORGANIZATION IS CHOSEN FOR A DONATION, YOU WILL RECEIVE ONE IN A TIMELY MANNER.
If accepted, a Rivermen representative will contact you to facilitate pick-up or delivery.
