Stinker supports charitable activities in Idaho, particularly in the communities where we operate convenience stores. While we are unable to support every worthwhile cause, we welcome the opportunity to review donation requests and special events. Some of the events Stinker regularly participates in include the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation fundraiser, Paint the Town, Idaho Foodbank fundraiser and Rake Up Boise.
Because of the sheer volume of requests for donations placed on our companies, we have implemented a responsible philanthropic policy and budget. Each year in January our organization meets to review solicitations for donations, and decides how we may best support our community.
We reviewed the national charities and decided the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation affords us the best opportunity to give back both nationally and locally. We are very proud of the contributions we have made over the last several years with the support of our stores and our customers. In 2014, Stinker customers and employees raised a record setting $82,213 and were honored with JDRF’s Legacy Partner Award.
If you would like to have your request considered at our next annual meeting in January, please submit your formal proposal in writing.
Thank you, again for reminding us of our need to always give back.

President and Chief Executive Officer
