Our Charitable Donations

Reininger & Helix are dedicated to supporting nonprofits, charitable foundations and community events throughout the Pacific Northwest through wine donations.

Each year, we receive hundreds of requests for charitable donations from worthy causes throughout the Northwest; unfortunately we are unable to meet many of the requests. Donation requests are reviewed and decisions are made based on our core values and previous involvement.

Items for Nonprofit Fundraising Use

We review each request individually. Requests made be made two months in advanceof the event date. ?If approved, we respectfully request that you plan to pick up your donation from our Walla Walla winery or Spokane tasting room. You will also be notified via email or phone if approved.
