Donation Policy

Heinen’s is proud of being a good corporate citizen.

We know that charitable donations are part of being a good neighbor and we are proud that Heinen’s annual donations compares quite favorably to similar size companies. 

Because we are a very visible member of many area communities, Heinen’s receives thousands of donation requests annually.  In order to review the many types of requests, we have developed criteria and a procedure to help us best serve those in need of our assistance.

Please take a moment to review the outlined criteria for a donation:

  • Heinen’s will only donate to non-profit (501-3C) charitable organizations that are located in the general Cleveland, Ohio and Chicago, Illinois areas

  • Heinen’s supports over 450 local schools through our Teaming Up For Education Program which is a Tasteful Reward member benefit.  Tasteful Reward members can select an area school and Heinen’s will donate up to 1% of their eligible purchases from September through April each school year to the chosen school.  A donation is sent to qualifying schools every May

  • Heinen’s donates small amounts of money or product to a large number of qualifying local organizations and larger monetary amounts to only a small, select group of local organizations

  • Heinen’s does not donate to individuals for their pursuit of personal goals or tragedies. Instead, we give to supporting organizations that in turn help those in need. 

  • All donation requests must be in writing, preferably on the organization’s letterhead, include your Heinen’s Preferred Customer Card number and mail or fax the request to:

  • Heinen’s Inc.
