Societe Gives Back is a program designed by Societe Brewing Company to help raise money and awareness for select charity partners, while providing the opportunity for our fans and customers to learn more about specific philanthropic causes, efforts, programs and more.
Tuesday Charity Partners
A primary component of Societe Gives Back is our Tuesday Charity Partners program, where we team with a different non-profit organization (501c3) each month from January through November. At the beginning of each year, we select 11 such partners from a list of qualified applicants (see below to apply), then set the schedule for the year. Once a group is assigned a month, they are invited to have representatives on-site in our tasting room each Tuesday of the month to interface with our clientele and have materials on-hand for distribution to further educate people about their cause and their efforts to make a positive difference. Additionally, we donate a portion of all tasting-room proceeds from every Tuesday in that group’s designated month directly to the non-profit or campaign.
Holiday Food Drive
Each year, Societe holds a Holiday Food Drive benefiting the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, during which we incentivize customers to donate food over a five-to-six week period ranging from late-November through December. In the past four years, our drives have raised more than 29,000 pounds of healthy food for families in need throughout San Diego County. Stay tuned to our social-media accounts for information on this year’s drive.
Giving back is a cornerstone of Societe’s business-model. We get a great deal of satisfaction from helping good people do good things and enjoy hosting charity organizations, whether they are based in San Diego or Southern California in general. We seek out charities, but also take suggestions from our customers, friends and family. As mentioned above, we currently have a vast number of inquiries and recommendations we are currently vetting for inclusion on our waiting-list.
Please note that, in order to partner with us, an applicant must be able to provide a Tax Determination Letter attesting to their organization’s tax-exempt status.
