Community Giving

The Lounsbury Group is extremely proud of its New Brunswick heritage. We believe in giving back and supporting the communities in which we do business in for the past 140 plus years. As such, we support a wide range of local not-for-profit initiatives representing arts & culture, youth education & sport, mental health and general healthcare, among others.

We invite you to submit a request for support on behalf of your community organization for consideration.

Request For Support

Each year, the Lounsbury Group receives many requests for support and/or sponsorship from organizations in our communities. Decisions on funding/sponsorship are based on several factors including the availability of Lounsbury volunteers, financial resources and funding priorities. Please keep in mind that even though your request may meet our funding criteria, we may be unable to approve all applications due to the high volume of requests we receive.

To help you complete and submit your request quickly and properly, please review the following guidelines:

Request Guidelines

All requests must be submitted by completing the form on this page.

We will review requests monthly and provide a response within 4-6 weeks of submission. Please make sure your request is complete and properly submitted to avoid delays. If your request is in support of a major community event, please submit your request 9-12 months in advance. All other requests should be submitted as far in advance of the event as possible.

For annual or ongoing support, we ask that you submit a request each year to us for review. We also ask that you make clear whether you are requesting our volunteer time or service, a charitable donation or a corporate sponsorship:

Charitable donations are funds we provide to registered charities for which tax receipts are issued.

Sponsorships are partnerships that we form with other organizations for marketing purposes. We select sponsorship opportunities based on how they reflect or support the Lounsbury Group’s business priorities and values.

To ensure a quick and fair review of your request, please include the following information:

  • Name and contact information of the organization/company.
  • Description of organization/company and event or sponsorship opportunity.
  • Charitable organization tax registration or official designation number if applicable.
  • Details about the Organizing Committee, sponsorship structure levels and costs.
  • Contact information including address, phone, email, etc. as well as name and title of contact person.
  • Whether the event is new or established, and if so, for how long?
  • Is this a one-time opportunity or on going?
  • Designate whether the opportunity is National, Regional, or Local.
  • Amount of donation requested and the purpose of the donation.
  • Whether the Lounsbury Group’s participation would be exclusive.
  • Any previous Lounsbury Group or any subsidiaries relationship or involvement.
  • Other sponsor names and level of commitment.
