Donation Request Guidelines

The Rochester Americans appreciate the high level of enthusiasm surrounding the Amerks and thank all our fans for their support. Due to the large volume of requests, the Amerks have developed procedures and guidelines to assist you with your donation request, specifically as it relates to the Amerks potential involvement. All donation requests must be submitted up to 4 weeks in advance to your event.

  • Donation requests can be made online by clicking here. The Amerks no longer accept donation requests via telephone.
  • While we would like to assist as many charitable groups as possible, donations are limited to Western and Upstate New York markets.
  • All requests must be submitted on organization letterhead. If your organization does not have letterhead, please include a letter from the charitable organization that your fundraiser benefits.
  • All donation requests for merchandise must include the following:
    - A description of the event
    - Date and location of the event
    - Description of who will benefit from the donation
    - Complete mailing address of the organization
    - A contact name and phone number and email if possible
  • We review and fulfill donations twice monthly and will respond to every request we receive whether or not a donation is approved. Please do not contact the Amerks Office to check on the status of your request.
  • We will make every effort to make our donation available well in advance of your event. However, due to inventory demands, donations may not be available until the week of your event.
  • Donations must be picked-up at the Amerks Front Office located at The Blue Cross Arena. Some exceptions apply and will be determined solely at the discretion of the Rochester Americans.
  • Autographed memorabilia and other donations are limited to one request per organization each year.


Written requests can also be sumbitted and must include include:

- A description of the event
- Date and location of the event
- Description of who will benefit from the donation
- Complete mailing address of the organization
- A contact name and phone number and email if possible


Please mail written request to:
Rochester Americans
Community Relations Department
1 War Memorial Square
Rochester, NY 14614


Helpful Hint:
It's recommended that your event is not centered on the anticipation of our donation item but should be approached as a complimentary element to your event. Many requests may not be able to be fulfilled due to the overwhelming volume of requests we receive weekly.

The Amerks will make arrangements for fan merchandise for the purpose of autographing for a charity event. Any merchandise must be delivered and picked up. Requests will receive a letter of approval or denial prior to the event. As a result of numerous requests each week, the process can be lengthy. Please be patient. Due to the large volume of requests we receive, the Amerks have established a statewide policy for donations of charitable items. Organizations within the state of New York with priority to Rochester will generally receive support from the Amerks depending on the nature and scope of the event.
