Who do we contact to request a donation in the U.S.?

Every day we receive dozens of worthy requests that inspire and move us.  We are overwhelmed by the number of people willing to share their personal stories with us in an effort to do great things in their communities and across our country.  We wish we could help everyone support the causes that are close to their hearts.  Unfortunately, due to the volume of requests we receive, it isn’t possible for us to donate to everyone so we had to come up with some guidelines.  

Crayola's community relations program makes direct charitable contributions to non-profit organizations in our manufacturing areas of Lehigh or Northampton Counties in Pennsylvania, and the city of Phillipsburg, New Jersey.  If your organization meets these geographic requirements and you'd like to submit an online donation request, please visit Crayolacares.com.

Due to the heavy volume of requests, please allow 4 to 6 weeks for a response.

To assist qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations or schools located outside our manufacturing area, we coordinate our efforts through Good360, the world’s leading charity in product philanthropy, and the National Association for the Exchange of Industrial Resources (NAEIR). Please contact them directly to receive additional information about their eligibility criteria or Crayola product availability at: http://www.good360.org or http://www.naeir.org/.

As an alternative, small packages of Crayola Crayons may be purchased for promotional purposes or to be given as donations from one of the following suppliers:
