Local Store Support

Is your organization seeking a $25 gift card to use as a raffle item at your next fundraising event? Do you need a gift basket as a door prize, spaghetti for that spaghetti supper or cups and napkins for your event? All requests for local support valued at $100 or less should be addressed to the Store Manager at your local Hannaford.

Use our store locator to find your nearest Hannaford Supermarket.

Regional or Corporate Donation/Sponsorship Requests

Requests for support greater than $100 should be entered via the web application link below.

Please review the following criteria before applying:

  • All donation and sponsorship requests must be submitted through our online application form (see "Apply Now" link below). We cannot accept requests received via U.S. mail, fax, or email.
  • All contributions are made at the sole discretion of Hannaford Bros. Co., LLC. Any organization that discriminates based on gender, race, color, ancestry, national origin, citizenship status, religion, age, marital status (including civil unions), military service, veteran status, pregnancy, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, legally recognized disability, domestic violence victim status or any other characteristic protected by law is ineligible for consideration.
  • For requests to support scheduled events, we require that applications be submitted at least eight (8) weeks prior to the event.
  • For your request to be considered your organization's focus and event (if applicable) must fall under one or more of our priority giving areas: health and wellness, child development and families, and/or hunger relief.
  • We ask that each organization submit no more than one request per calendar year. This allows us to support as many qualifying non–profit organizations as possible throughout our 5–state service area. If you have more than one fundraising event you would like us to choose from, our on–line application will require you to submit separate proposals for each event. If your request is for program support, and your organization has multiple programs you would like us to consider, information for all programs can be submitted on one request.
  • We work diligently to respond to all requests as quickly as possible; however responses to your request may take up to three weeks.
  • Unfortunately, we cannot support all requests that we receive. Please click on the "Requests We Cannot Support" tab below to review a list of request types that we will decline.
What are the guidelines for giving?

Hannaford limits event and sponsorship support to the five states where we operate: Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont. Organizations focused on health and wellness; child development and families and/or hunger relief receive our strongest consideration.
