Sponsorships and Donations
We want to strengthen Prairie communities in which we do business – and to do that, we need to be active participants. Peavey Mart supports our local communities and encourages participation and involvement of local folks with local causes. The need is great, so please contact us well in advance of your event since budgets may already be allocated. Peavey Mart is a proud supporter of:
4-H Alberta, 4-H Saskatchewan, 4-H Manitoba, 4-H BC – North Thompson
Alberta Association of Agricultural Societies
Saskatchewan Association of Agricultural Societies and Exhibitions
Manitoba Association of Agricultural Societies
Regional specialty agricultural shows
Store fundraisers at the till for Easter Seals Canada, Telemiracle, Canadian Cancer Society, Wild Pink Yonder and local food banks are supported by our amazing customers who understand why we ask for their support, and who donate to these worthy causes. Peavey Mart adds a formula for matching funds to these fundraising events.
In addition, Peavey Industries supports our communities and community groups in several ways:
Local event sponsorship – if your event takes place in a single community, support can be considered by our local stores. Please contact your local store manager. Be prepared to send a sponsor package for consideration.
Regional event product donation requests can be considered by our donations committee. Your request is required to be submitted on organization letterhead. Please send your request to the Sponsorship Committee at our Home Office in Red Deer.
Regional event sponsorship requests can be considered by our marketing department. Tell us how your event or membership fits with what our stores are about.
