East Durham Bake Shop receives a large number of donation inquiries each year, and as such we are not able to donate to every organization that makes a request.

While we are happy to review all donation request forms we receive, we prioritize giving to schools and nonprofit organizations located in and benefiting North East Central Durham (i.e. the neighborhood surrounding the Bake Shop) and its residents as well as local nonprofit organizations supporting agricultural, environmental and sustainability causes.

To submit a donation request please e-mail with the following information:

  • Your organization’s name, mission, location and population served
  • The type of donation (pastries? beverages? gift card? other?)
  • If the donation is for an event: number of people in attendance, time and date of event, how will the event be promoted
  • Name and contact information for persons picking up the donation
  • Other local businesses/organizations participating
  • Why us? Why, specifically, are you reaching out to the Bake Shop for a donation?
