BMB Sending Super Smiles

From local food bank daily donations, to sending cookies to our soldiers overseas, we're committed to supporting in a variety of ways that best represent our values. Being in business for over 60 years, we recognize that our local community is vital to the success of Butter Maid Bakery. Without you, we would not be here baking, and supporting is our way of saying Thank You! Here are a few recent smiles that we sent:

Please send your request in writing to the address below at least 6 weeks prior to the date of the event. Any events submitted with less than 6 weeks notice will automatically be declined. We want to give every event requested an equal opportunity & consideration, which means we need time for the selection process. While 6 weeks is our minimum time requirement, additional time is always appreciated.

While we would love to participate in events all over the country, we can only consider requests in our town of Youngstown, Ohio and surrounding area. An exception to this is our current support of U.S. soldiers overseas.

Requirements & Submission
We give back the community in a variety of ways including:
- Daily support to local food banks
- Sponsorship
- Gift cards
- Good old fashion cash
We no longer support with baked good donations.

Due to our solid Facebook awareness of 40,000+ fans, we receive an overwhelming number of requests in comparison to the size of our small family business. Even though many requests are for worthwhile organizations and causes, we regret we can't respond to most requests with a gift.

Because resources are limited, we reserve our support for groups, causes and events best representing Butter Maid Bakery's values, and that make a significant impact in our community. We meet monthly to make decisions on how we will give back to the community, and base our decisions on the following:
- Is your organization clearly a non-profit or charitable 501(C)3?
- Is your request coming from an organization that will improve the health, education, environment, cultural, or civic vitality of our community?

We do not support, or no longer support due to limited resources:
- Requests from or for specific individuals or memorials
- Endowment, capital or annual operating fund drives
- Beauty pageants and talent contests
- Government, religious, fraternal, alumni, trade, professional or social organizations
- Political or partisan organizations, candidates, or organizations established to influence legislation or specific elections
- Organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender or national origin

Please make sure the written request includes what is needed, what you will do with it, and who will benefit. Please make sure you include all contact information of the person in charge of receiving the donation, including a mailing address.

Mail To:
Butter Maid Bakery
Attn: Charitable Donations
425 Boardman Canfield Rd

Please do not make your request or check the status of the request, in person or by phone at our retail location, by email or any social media; the staff, managers, and owners found at any of the previously mentioned, do not manage them. No such requests will be considered, and no information is available regarding the approval/decline status.

What To Expect Next
We have a set budget, and all requests submitted on time and within our above requirements, will receive an opportunity for consideration. If selected, you will be contacted. If you do not receive a donation by 2 weeks prior to your event, it has not been selected. Status updates cannot be provided and decline notices will not be sent, due to limited resources we regret we are unable to respond to this large number of requests. Thank you in advance for your understanding, and we sincerely thank you for considering Butter Maid Bakery to participate. We wish the very best for your event!

My mom was Hungarian and her family made kolachy all the time. Unfortunately, I let time slip away ("I'll ask for mom to show me how to make kolachy next year; this year I'll just have her make it and I'll enjoy it"), until mom had dementia and, as one of the youngest of a large family, most of her siblings had passed away. Mom has been gone ...
