Ollie’s wants the communities where we do business to thrive. After all, our employees and customers live, work and raise families in those communities. Therefore, we have created the guidelines below to help us maximize our community support and manage and control the abundance of charitable requests we receive.
While Ollie’s makes every effort to support a variety of groups, our mission is to support organizations that better the lives of children and provide the best opportunities to our next generation.
Ollie’s Primary Corporate Charitable Programs
We currently support the following national organizations regularly and in significant ways through store events and other means: Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, Children’s Miracle Network and Kevin Harvick Foundation. Ollie’s raises more than a combined $1 million a year for these organizations!
Donation Request Guidelines
With the exception of Ollie’s primary corporate charitable programs such as those described above, Ollie’s believes that other forms of solicitation, no matter how well intentioned, can cause disruption to our associates and customers and may interfere with our primary charitable programs. Therefore, on premise solicitation of any kind including, but not limited to, canning, distribution of literature or collecting cash or in kind donations (goods/services) at any Ollie’s location is strictly prohibited at all times.
Donation or Charitable Sponsorship Request Guidelines
Ollie’s will provide all eligible applicants with a 15% discount certificate to use towards one transaction at any Ollie’s store location. Certificates are limited to one discount per benefiting organization per year. Certificates expire six months after issue date.
