Here is a summary of the donation request process based on the information provided:
1. Eligibility Criteria: Organizations must be 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and have a focus on supporting children, education, and/or health and human services. Costco only accepts monetary requests.
2. Timing and Application: Costco accepts and reviews funding requests throughout the year on a rolling basis.

To ensure sufficient time for review, it is recommended to submit donation requests at least 4-6 weeks in advance.
3. Giving Options: Costco provides two giving options for donation requests:
a. Warehouse Donations: This option is suitable for local organizations and local causes. Nonprofits can request support for their initiatives within the local community.
b. Grant Applications: This option is geared towards larger, broad-based organizations and causes. Nonprofits seeking support on a larger scale can submit grant applications.
4. Resource Limitations: Costco receives a significant number of requests from nonprofit organizations, and while they are thankful for the opportunity to provide support, they may not be able to accommodate all requests due to resource limitations.
