Thank you for your interest in Richard Florida and the Creative Class Group. We applaud your efforts toward your cause. We receive thousands of donation requests annually and will review all written requests submitted to us via email on behalf of a federally-licensed 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable organization on the organizationâ€™s official letterhead which must include the nature of the donation (i.e. cash sponsorship, discounted speech, donated speech, autographed books, dvds, cds), date of the charitable event, location of event, contact name and phone number, and an explanation of how the donation will be used, along with a letter from the IRS documenting the organizationâ€™s non-profit status.
If your request is granted, we will post your logo and link to your website on our â€˜Supportâ€™ page of www.creativeclass.com for an unlimited period of time. If a cash donation is made, we require a receipt for tax purposes.
