Nonprofit selection process

Classic Wines Foundation supports the good work of Oregon and Southwest Washington organizations by providing funds to pre-selected nonprofit partners benefiting children and families.

Classic Wines Foundation only partners with nonprofits who exemplify the following characteristics:

  • mission compatibility (must benefit children and families in Oregon or Southwest Washington communities)
  • effective organizational management
  • sound financial practices
  • board-led fundraising
  • sustainability
  • solid volunteer network

Classic Wines Foundation has limited opportunities to engage new nonprofit partners each year and does not currently have openings. We encourage local nonprofit organizations interested in discussing their interest for future involvement with the Classic Wines Foundation to contact Kristy Anderson at kristy@classicwinesauction.com.​

Classic Wines Foundation does not require formal applications, and all compatible nonprofit organizations expressing interest will be considered by the Board and Executive Committee. If opportunities are available, the Executive Committee will select organizations with the characteristics listed above for further consideration. In order to become involved, interested organizations must contact Classic Wines Foundation before April 1 to discuss potential participation in the following calendar year’s events.​

Thank you for your interest in Classic Wines Foundation.
