- Blue Star Families
- Channel 3 Kids Camp
- Wounded Warriors
- University of Connecticut
- Munson Family Educational Scholarships
- Travelers Championship: “PGA Tour Giving Back” to benefit The Greater Hartford Community Foundation, Inc.

From schools to non-profit support groups and charities, we aspire to make a difference through involvement with the various community groups we support.
Charitable Giving Guidelines:
Before submitting a request for a donation, please take note of the following:
- The focus of Munson’s charitable giving is the State of Connecticut where our company is headquartered and our retail stores are located.
- Donation requests can only be made by sending a letter to our headquarters in Bolton Connecticut. Individual store locations cannot donate product directly. Requests for donation will not be accepted via phone, fax, email or at Munson’s retail outlets.
Donation requests should be mailed to:
174 Hop River Road
Bolton, CT 06043
- Product donation requests must be made a minimum of 45 days (6 weeks) prior to the date of the event.
- Priority is always given to those groups and organizations that participate in one of our fund raising programs.
No matter how worthy the effort or undertaking, Munson’s Chocolates does not support:
- Sponsorships or donations for individuals or teams (for example walk-a-thons).
- Individuals or families.
- Individuals who participate in an athletic event on behalf of a charity.
- Organizations raising funds on behalf of another benefiting group.
- Student exchange or travel programs.
How To Request a Donation:
If your organization meets our established criteria and you chose to send a formal letter of request, please be sure it includes the following information:
- An overview of the organization
- Purpose and description of the product for which the donation will be used
- Date of event
- Contact person’s name, phone number and email.
Munson’s Chocolates receives a large volume of donation requests daily and each and every letter is carefully reviewed as we take our gifting very seriously. While we would like to contribute to every organization, we are unable to do so. Due to the large number of requests, we will only contact those donations which have been approved.
