In order to be considered for a Derek Jeter memorabilia donation from the Turn 2 Foundation, we ask that you submit a letter on your organization's letterhead that includes the event date, general information about the organization and how the money being raised is utilized. Along with this letter, you need to submit a completed donation request form at least six weeks prior to your event. Due to the increased requests for memorabilia, we require that the recipient organization assumes responsibility for shipping costs. You must provide FedEx or UPS account information or issue credit card authorization. You may submit the completed form (Attention: Turn 2 Memorabilia) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax at 212-475-3378.
We will review your request once we have received the request letter and completed form. If approved, we will send an autographed item along with a Certificate of Authenticity and a Proceeds Form that we ask you to complete and return to us following your event. We cannot accommodate more than one request per organization each calendar year.
Should you have any questions, feel free to contact our office at (212)475-2339 x200.
To obtain autographed memorabilia, please contact Steiner Sports; the exclusive provider of autographed gifts, collectibles and licensed merchandise for Derek.
