Elephants Delicatessen gives back to the Portland community through volunteerism and donations to non-profits and community events throughout the year. We recognize our reliance on one another and work hard to extend our support to a variety of organizations each year. Please use the following guidelines to help us consider your organization or event:

  • Due to our volume of holiday orders, we are not able to consider donation requests for events happening in November and December.
  • Please submit requests 1-2 months prior to your event. We are not able to consider donation requests submitted with less than 30 days’ notice.
  • If your organization has received a donation in the past year, please wait another year before submitting a new request.
  • We only donate to local organizations (or local chapters) in the Portland Metro area.
  • Please, no calls to any location regarding donation requests. We try to answer all donation requests within 15 business days. If you have not received a reply after that time please email us.
  • We extend a year-round discount of 5% off food and beverages for catering and sack lunch orders for our non-profit and B-Corp-certified customers.
