Donation Request Guidelines

The Charlotte Bobcats and Cats Care are committed to being involved in the Charlotte community and working collaboratively with groups and organizations in the Carolinas that desire to make a positive impact in the areas of education, hunger and wellness. We are asked to support hundreds of worthwhile charitable causes each year and we will make every effort to support as many requests as possible.

Due to the large number of requests, we primarily donate to non-profit organizations located in North and South Carolina. All requests must be submitted using the Cats Care Donation Request Form, 6 weeks prior to the date of the event. An organization is only allowed to receive one donation per year.

    All requests will require a brief description of the organization and event; who or what the proceeds will benefit; date, time and location of the event; expected attendance; a specific description of how your request will be used; and a tax identification number and filing status.


* Please note that due to the overwhelming number of requests we receive, we are no longer accepting written requests.


Book Bus Request Guidelines

In order to support early literacy in the Charlotte Area, the Bobcats, in partnership with Lowe’s Home Improvement, have launched the Book Bus. The bus will travel to CMS schools, focusing primarily on underserved schools with low literacy scores, as well as YMCA and Charlotte Mecklenburg Library summer camps. Rufus Lynx will drive the bus and will engage children between the ages of 5-13 at every stop in an interactive program that encourages a love for reading. Every child that visits the bus will receive a free book.

The Charlotte Bobcats and Lowe’s are committed to this education initiative and we will make every effort to ensure the Book Bus visits as many organizations as possible. If you are interested in having the Book Bus visit your school or organization, please fill out the Book Bus Application Form. Please note that your application must be submitted six weeks prior to your event date.
