We donate to organizations that focus on arts and culture to enhance the quality of life in our communities; to programs encouraging community development; and to organizations dedicated to health and wellness. We support activities and special events that make our communities and surrounding areas fun and interesting.  We receive over 1,000 charitable donation requests each year and we try to give each one careful consideration. We wish it were possible to honor all of them.


Because we commit our donation budget far in advance, we ask you to adhere to the following guidelines:


Submit your request on organization or association letterhead and include:

  • The date, time, and location of event.
  •  A short description of your organization, its mission, and programs.  
  • A short description of how the item will be used (e.g., silent auction, live auction, raffle, or door prize).
  • The number of people anticipated to attend your event.
  • The name, phone number, and address of organization contact person.
  •  The manner of acknowledgement of Wells Discount Liquors’ donation to the public and to your members (e.g., advertisements, promotional materials, announcements at the event).

Please submit request 4 weeks prior to the event to:


           Wells Discount Liquors

           Diana Abbott, Coordinator of Charitable Donations

           6310 York Road

           Baltimore, Maryland 21212


You may also email your formal request in pdf format to Diana: Diana@wellswine.com


We notify all recipients of the decision of the donation committee. (Follow-up inquiries from applicants are necessary).


Please note:  Incomplete requests will not be considered.  Typically, we will only consider one request from an organization annually.  Approval in a prior year will not jeopardize an application in a subsequent year.

  • Individuals
  • Political/lobbying organizations or activities
  • Professional seminars/employees’ recognition activities
