Fundraising & Donations

Thank you for considering us for your fundraising needs. We have proudly supported a variety of not-for-profit organizations since 1920.

Many requests for charitable donations are requested every year, and as much as we would love to help all the great causes, we simply cannot. In order for your request to be considered, we ask that you provide us with the following information:

  • An official letter with your organization’s request.
  • A detailed explanation of the event.
  • A four week lead time.

Please send your official request by mail to:
Morkes Chocolates
1890 N. Rand Road
Palatine, IL 60074

Or email the information to:
yummy@morkeschocolates.com

Please, no phone calls or walk-ins.
