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. We are currently set for 2019 Charitable Partners and not accepting applications at time time. Please check back later in the year.
Spring Seasonal Charitable Partner:
Sproutin’ Up aims to improve the lives of underserved children and teens through farming internships, after-school programs, and summer camps. The food that is harvested from these programs is donated back to the kid’s communities. Learn more about their Youth-Run CSA Farm and how you can get involved.
April Tip Jar Partners
Each month we partner with a local non profit to receive all of the tips you leave in the taproom. When you visit our taproom and leave a tip, your gift is donated to our Charity of the Month.
