Pacific Raceways Charitable Giving & Community Support Guidelines

Overview:
Pacific Raceways is a family owned and operated multi-surface racing facility.  Having been a part of the community for over 52 years, Pacific Raceways believes in supporting the community, as the community has supported Pacific Raceways over the years.

Pacific Raceways is proud to welcome multiple nonprofit and charity events each calendar year.  One of our largest and longest running events, the Pacific Northwest Historics is produced in conjunction between the SOVREN Race Club and the SOVREN Guild, and benefits Seattle Children’s Hospital.  We also work with several local charities and organizations through volunteer opportunities, and ticket giveaways.

Pacific Raceways is pleased to be able to donate NHRA National Drag Race Tickets and Lucas Oil Drag Race tickets as our way of giving back to the community.  Please take a few moments to read our giving guidelines to determine if your organization meets these requirements.

Giving Guidelines:
We accept requests for in-kind donations of NHRA National Drag Race Tickets and Lucas Oil Drag Race Tickets.  We have a limited number of tickets available for donations, therefore, we have focused giving.  Pacific Raceways does not provide support for:

  • Loans, grants, monetary donation requests
  • Groups that discriminate
  • Multi-year commitments or automatic renewal grants/donations
  • Pageants
  • General Operating Expenses

Pacific Raceways will consider requests from nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations within our community.  Please note, donations are awarded between December 1 – July 1.  Please ensure your event date falls within this timeline prior to making a request.

How to Apply
All donation requests must be submitted in writing, on organizational letterhead and postmarked at least 6 weeks prior to the event.  We do not accept faxed or emailed requests.  Letters must include the following information:

  • Date of your event
  • Procurement deadline (if applicable)
  • Federal Tax ID Number
  • A brief explanation of the event and how proceeds will be used
  • Contact name, phone number, complete mailing address and valid email address

Please limit donation requests to once per calendar year and refrain from sending multiple requests to other departments or employees at Pacific Raceways.  Requests will only be considered by the Community Relations Team.

Please do not send personal items, or fan merchandise to be autographed by drivers.

Due to the large number of asks received, not all donation requests will be able to be fulfilled.  Likewise, not all donation requests will receive a response.  Approved requests will receive notice of their donation.  Donations will be mailed only to the organization’s address, or arrangements can be made to pick up donations at the administrative offices at Pacific Raceways.
