Fundraising / Non Profit Organizations
Centerplate is committed to the Seattle community. We offer charities the opportunity to raise funds and earn a percentage of their concession stands sales during Mariner's home games. Last year, numerous non-profit organizations participated in our Concession Fundraising Program at Safeco Field. Centerplate contributed more than $500,000 to these charities.
To qualify your organization must have a valid 501(c)(3) status, and are typically groups such as school booster clubs, civic groups, church organizations, and military Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Committees.
Our average concession stand requires at least 6 cashiers and several runners/helpers. Typically, we require 10 fundraising members per event, per location. Before your organization can start, your group must attend training in hospitality, food safety, and responsible alcohol service. All volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and have a Washington State Food Handler's permit. (Please check with your county health department for classes or go online at www.foodworkercard.wa.gov.) Your group is responsible for the cost of these permits and must have your official certification cards to begin fundraising.
We do require the sale of alcoholic beverages at our concession stands. Your group must be willing to sell and serve alcohol. Each member selling alcohol must be at least 21 years of age and have a Washington State Alcohol (MAST) Permit. Click here for more information on training requirements.
