Our Posts

We are honored to be joining a community of like-minded businesses giving back and banding together to make a collective impact by using a shared tool that benefits nonprofits locally and across the country. Using a shared cloud-based tool lowers the cost of administration for organizations seeking corporate and employee contributions. We invite you to join us!

Community Impact

The Portland Trail Blazers are committed to making our community better by donating resources to help local children and their families where they live, learn and play. Through this site you can request an in-kind item to raise money for an organization that benefits youth in Oregon or SW Washington.

About Us

In-Kind Donation Requests Instructions:

The Trail Blazers have joined GIVINGtrax to manage donation requests and will consider requests for in-kind donations benefitting local nonprofits and schools  that work with youth. We prioritize donations to organizations that benefit kids where they live, learn and play.
Although we try our best to provide the desired item being requested, due to the high volume of requests, there is no guarantee that we will be able to do so even if your request meets our general criteria.  We ask for your understanding should we need to alter your donation, or if we are not able to accommodate your request.
You may submit an in-kind donation request for the following items:
  • An Auction item (such as a piece of team signed memorabilia)
  • A Clinic (to be hosted at your school or nonprofit) – Please include a detailed description in the request
  • The opportunity to purchase tickets at a discounted rate (must be a nonprofit or school recipient organization, but may be given to students, volunteers, employees and teachers as an award)  
  • A Trail Blazer front office staff speaker at your event  

Unfortunately we are not able to support events through cash sponsorships or table purchases. All of our cash giving goes through our foundation - more information can be found at: www.trailblazers.com/makeitbetter

To submit your request, please click on "submit request" button above where you will be directed to register.  If you are not an employee of the recipient organization or school, please ask someone at the organization or school to submit the request directly so they can select the option to register as a nonprofit (even if it is a school). We are only able to give to any qualified nonprofit organization once per fiscal year (July-June), and we are not able to give to 3rd parties or individuals, only to employees of the 501c3 benefitting organization. 

Upon registering, you will be directed to our request form.  Please fill out as much of the information as you know. 

On the request form, choose "in-kind" as the type of donation. Then include a brief description of the desired item (memorabelia, tickets, a clinic, or a staff speaker)

Before submitting a request please take a moment to review our submission criteria. Only reqeusts meeting our criteria will be allowed through the system.   

Please note:  Although the donation request form has a dropdown for other types of requests, such as cash requests, only in-kind donation requests meet our criteria. All other types of requests will be automatically declined by the system. 

Please  note, we require 4 to 6 weeks advance notice of the event in order to process the request and/or to make appropraite arrangements.
If you have questions about the submission process, or how to use GIVINGtrax, please contact GIVINGtrax directly at (206) 486-0185.
Thanks for your interest in receiving an in kind donation from the Trail Blazers! We will truly do our best to make a donation possible for your organization. Thank you in advance for understanding that we recive a large volume of requests and due to limited resources are not able to accommodate each one. Have a great day!

Thank you for your donation. What is the best way for us to pick up our check? Is it mailed or do we need to come in and pick it up? If it needs to be picked up can a staff member show their ID with the school name and their picture for verification? Thank you once again!
