Charitable giving is a part of the tradition and vision of Odell Brewing Company. We aim to be champions of our community through innovative, thoughtful and creative philanthropy. Initially, our giving happened organically and after a decade of saying yes, our founders realized they had an opportunity to create a pillar of their business that was distinctive and beneficial to the area in which they distribute. We have since focused our giving to 3 areas:
- Humanitarian, including:
- Single parent families
A portion of all the beer we brew is dedicated to supporting the communities that give us our success. We believe engaging with nonprofits and creating opportunities for service is more than good business, it’s our responsibility to one another. Care to join us? Volunteer with Odell Outreach!
We strive to foster deep and enriching relationships with the nonprofits we support. We developed a Seasonal Partnership model to allow us to add more points of impact and engage in more opportunities with the non profits in our communities. Our Charitable Committee, made of folks from across the brewery, gather each year to choose the charities that will live in our taproom for an entire fiscal quarter. To learn more, please check out our application process and find out if your organization is a good fit. We also look for monthly charities for our Charitable Tip Jar. These donations are procured through the generosity of the guests and visitors to our taproom.
