Tis the Season of Giving

Since its founding 23 years ago, Grand Teton Brewing Company (GTBC) has been aproud supporter of charitable causes in both Teton Valley, Idaho and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Our donations of beer, merchandise, employees’ time and even our facility have helped local non-profits raise money to enhance the well being of the people in our community.  As a company, we take pride in our community involvement.

For 2012, GTBC is again allocating funds from our budget to support charitable causes in the local area.  This budget is in addition to the cash donations we will make through the Tin Cup Challenge in 2012 via our popular Non-Profit Pub Nights early in the summer.  We are asking that you help us plan our giving year by applying for a donation well in advance of your event.

Click here for a link to out Donation Request form, which we ask you to complete and return to us by January 31, 2012.   All requests received by this date will be reviewed by a committee of brewery employees.  A large majority of our donation budget will be allocated based on this first round of requests.  We urge you to make your request early, even if you have not yet worked out all the details of your fundraising event.  We will award you a donation provisionally then ask you to contact us again four weeks prior to your event.

After the application deadline of January 31st, all later requests during 2012 will be considered on a case-by-case basis, only if given three weeks lead time and only if there are funds remaining in our donation budget.

New for 2012 is a Donation Information Sheet (included in our request form) listing our beers and sodas and showing your organization how you can increase your fundraising by selling our product.  We will give preference to those organizations that sell our beer and soda and leverage our donation to an even larger impact on the money they raise.

The GTBC Donations Committee will prioritize donation requests based on the following criteria:

  1. Return our donation request form by January 31
  2. A 501c3 non-profit organization located in Teton Valley, ID or Jackson, WY
  3. Sell our beer or soda at your event to maximize the money you raise
  4. GTBC will be the only brewery represented at your event
  5. Include GTBC in the publicity of your event (posters, ads, banners, etc.)

We look forward to helping your non-profit organization achieve success in 2012.  If you have any questions, please email Julie Levy at beermail@grandtetonbrewing.com.

Sincerely,

 Ellen Furbacher

Co Owner & Donations Committee Chair
