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:

Local Food Banks
Every November, Peavey Mart customers donate to their local food banks, and Peavey contributes a matching formula. More than $150,000 has been donated since 2014.
Agricultural Societies
Agricultural Societies are run by volunteers, and most have a community facility used for events that improve community quality of life. Peavey Mart supports the important work done by Ag Societies.
Animal Associations
Peavey Mart supports provincial associations that promote poultry, ornamental birds, sheep, goats, beef and horses.

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.
    • We determine approvals based on our annual budget, on the proposal itself, the fit, and the opportunities it provides, and whether we are already committed to a group with a similar mission/vision/event in the same area.
    • We want to keep abreast of new developments, and be able to consider supporting newer key initiatives. To keep "fresh", we prefer limited-term sponsorship commitments.
    • If you are familiar with Peavey Mart stores, and feel your proposal would be a good fit with us, please send us something to consider. We look forward to your proposal. Email to: marketing@peaveyindustries.com
