Application FAQs

H‑E‑B is proud to be a philanthropic leader in the market areas we serve. We receive more than 10,000 charitable donation requests annually, and that number continues to grow each year. H‑E‑B’s new online charitable donation portal will create efficiencies in our charitable donation process so we can serve you better.

Charitable donation requests must be received a minimum of 8 weeks prior to an event, program or activity in order for us to ensure the organization receives funding and sponsorship fulfillment in a timely manner.

H‑E‑B does not fund organizations with a pending 501 (c) status. We are only able to fund organizations that are verified with a tax exempt designation as determined by the Internal Revenue Service.
