Four Seasons Hotel Boston is a compassionate member of our local community and we strive to give back as often as possible. Due to the volume of requests we receive for charitable donations, organizations must meet the program guidelines to be considered; all requests are evaluated on an individual basis. Projects of all non-profit organizations are considered for a contribution without regard to race, gender, disability, religion, ethnicity, age, gender identity or sexual orientation.
1. Charitable donation requests must be received in writing, to the attention of the Director of Marketing, at least two months in advance of the event date (or two months in advance of the date by which the certificate is needed). It is not necessary to send separate requests for the Hotel and Bristol Restaurant and Bar.
2. Requests are reviewed monthly by the Hotel's Executive Office. Please allow our team time to consider the request before following up by phone or e-mail.
3.To be considered, charitable donation requests must meet the following criteria:
a) Proof of 501(c)(3) status must be submitted with the request; requests without this documentation will not be reviewed.
b) Please send your official paperwork for the event so that we have the date needed and the mailing address to which you would like the donation sent via US mail. A phone number and e-mail address must be included in your request in the event there are follow-up questions.
c) Priority will be given to local organizations with a focus on cancer research/treatment, children’s charities (excluding school fundraisers), education and arts and culture.
d) Only one request per organization per calendar year will be considered. A condition of any donation is that no other Four Seasons Hotel or Resort has been solicited or has offered a donation.
e) Four Seasons Hotel Boston does not donate goods or services to be used as incentives, thank-you gifts, door prizes, or for entertainment purposes. We do not donate to political organizations or to fundraisers that benefit an individual or an individual family.
4. If approved, the charitable donation request will be fulfilled and sent via US mail. You will receive notice by mail or by e-mail if we are unable to contribute.
If your request meets the criteria above, we encourage you to send us the details via email to email@example.com. Thank you for thinking of Four Seasons Hotel Boston for inclusion in your event, and best wishes for a successful event!
