Donation & Sponsorship
PLEASE READ BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR REQUEST.
For over 75 years, RA Jeffreys Distributing Company has proudly supported our local communities & partnerships through charitable endeavors. We will strive to assist each & every altruistic opportunity that is presented to RA Jeffreys and continue to build new relationships throughout our communities. Final decisions made for these contributions come from a board comprised of our senior leadership. We meet monthly to review all submissions & upcoming opportunities, which is why we ask for at least 30-days’ notice be given. All submissions will receive an e-mailed response on whether RA Jeffreys can or cannot contribute.
North Carolina law does govern our donations process, and we accept all submissions for consideration. Please note that not all submissions are fulfilled. An array of factors goes into each decision made. We appreciate organizations who contact us to support their cause.
If you are a RA Jeffreys retailer, please read below:
The laws in North Carolina were designed to protect fair commercial competition between manufacturers of alcoholic beverages. Relationships between wholesalers and retailers that result in special prices, gifts or agreements to sell only particular brands, are strictly prohibited. Remember the following rules when dealing with wholesalers:
- ABC Permit holders must buy alcoholic beverages only from North Carolina licensed wholesalers.
- Mixed Beverage Permittees must buy all spirituous liquor from an assigned ABC Store so that the mixed beverage tax can be charged on each container.
- Retail Permittees may not accept or seek out any discounts, gifts, loans, rebates or entertainment from any alcoholic beverage manufacturer or wholesaler.
- Retail permittees must keep alcoholic beverage invoices for at least three years. These records must be kept separate from other invoices; invoices should be kept on the licensed premises.
- Retail permittees may not buy alcoholic beverages on credit – they must pay on delivery.
- Retail permittees may not have any financial or wholesale business association with any spirituous liquor, beer, wine wholesaler or importer or manufacturer or vice versa.
- Retail permittees may not enter into any agreement to sell any particular brand(s) of alcoholic beverages to the exclusion of another brand.
- Malt beverage and wine wholesalers may not give, lend, or rent any fixtures, equipment or supplies to retail permittees. However, they may sell certain supplies on a cash basis at fair market value.
- Wholesalers may build, rotate and restock displays and price products for the retailer of their own brands only. They may not handle other wholesalers’ products.
- Manufacturers and wholesalers may not make any sale of an alcoholic beverage dependent upon the purchase of any other product.
- Retail permittees may sell or use novelties to advertise the trade name of an alcoholic beverage (such as T-shirts or hats), but must buy them at the prevailing market price. (See NC Administrative Rule 2T.0711-0717 for more.)
- Wholesalers may provide point of sale advertising materials or brand signs to the retailer, as long as they have no value other than advertising. They cannot be customized for the retailer. Usable items, such as novelties, must be sold to the retailer.
Basically, we can only donate to charitable organizations.
