Thank you for considering Above Ground Winery to participate in your fund-raising efforts. We receive multiple requests weekly for donations. To simplify the process for our small staff, we review requests during our Call for Consideration each November for the following calendar year. Our budget planning for 2013 has ended. If you would like to be considered for the 2014 fundraising year, please let us know the details between November 1, and November 15, 2013. Requests made between November 16, 2012 and October 31, 2013 will not be considered. Call for Consideration occurs each November. Details needed are:
