Donate your medal(s), money, or time.
Donate your medal.
If you would like to donate a marathon, half-marathon, or triathlon medal, please take a moment to fill out a Donation Form and tell us about yourself and where the medal is from to provide us and M4M recipients some background on you and your gift.
We also offer a special Medal Gift Request Program if you would like us to deliver a medal with a Medals4Mettle branded ribbon attached to a specific recipient that you designate. Please take a look at the Medal Gift Request Form for more details of the program.
Note to our medal donors: Medals4Mettle accepts only earned marathon, half-marathon, or triathlon medals. In the spirit of fostering philanthropy, we also accept medals earned by children who wish to donate them to other children. We appreciate your donated medals, however please do not send badges, pins, patches, stickers, plaques, ribbons or trophies as these cannot be used. Only the medals noted above are accepted.
Also, to reduce your postage costs and our labor, please remove the medal from its ribbon before mailing. We will award your medal with a clean brilliantly-colored Medals4Mettle ribbon.
Please package your medal(s) in a large envelope with card board or bubble wrap around it to prevent the envelope from becoming torn or destroyed in postage machines. Send your medal to the nearest Chapter address listed on the Chapters page of this site. Thank you!

Donations of money are always needed to help offset the costs of manufacturing ribbons, distributing and awarding medals to recipients, chapter promotional materials, and ongoing shipping and administration costs of running the organization.
