Community Harvest 2019

The deadline for consideration for our 2019 Community Harvest has passed. If you’d like to be considered for our 2020 Community Harvest, the deadline is April 15, 2020. Please see details below.

Through this annual September program, the Columbia Restaurant donates 5% of all guests’ lunch and dinner checks in the form of gift certificates to charitable organizations chosen by the guests. We donated more than $227,000 to more than 100 local non-profit organizations throughout Florida with the 2018 Community Harvest. Since the program began in 1998, the Columbia has given more than $2.4 million to non-profit organizations throughout Florida.

The requesting organization must be in the same city, or adjacent city, to a Columbia Restaurant Group location.

  • Provide a short (15 words or less) description of what your organization does.
  • Provide proof that your organization has 501(c)(3) status.
  • Provide information on your group’s mission, and the county or counties you serve.
  • Provide a contact name, phone number, email address and mailing address so that we may contact you.
  • Provide a list with the names of the people on your board of directors, and the company they represent.

Please send this information by regular mail (we are unable to accept information by email) to the following by April 15, 2020:

If your group is not selected to be listed on the ballot, we do accept “write-in” votes from patrons. You can encourage your supporters to designate your official 501(c)(3) charity to the form when they dine at any Columbia Restaurant in September.
