ProBrewer and the MJF have combined forces to help bring diversity to American brewhouses. And thanks to the generosity of Brooklyn Brewery, donations received through May 1st will be matched in full by the brewery, up to $100,000. Please help us make the most of this challenge grant by donating to the MJF in the run-up to this yearâ€™s BA Craft Brewerâ€™s Conference in Minneapolis.
Whatâ€™s this â€œchallenge grantâ€?
The Brooklyn Brewery has offered to fund a permanent endowment for the MJF with a dollar-for-dollar match on all donations made in the run-up to the Craft Brewerâ€™s Conference (May 2nd â€“ 5th, 2022). For every dollar you donate, Brooklyn Brewery will match your donation up to $100,000. This means that if you donate $25, the MJF receives $50; if you donate $2,500, the MJF gets $5k, etc. Itâ€™s really that simpleâ€¦ but itâ€™s a challenge grant, so we only get these funds if the industry steps up to support us. Weâ€™re especially grateful to ProBrewer for partnering with us on this amazing opportunity to double the value of your donation. We can only do this with the support of people like you!
A diverse, inclusive and equitable brewing industry is a healthy brewing industry, and itâ€™s what we all want to see. So please join ProBrewer and the MJF as we work with Brooklyn Brewery to help make this industry the kind of inviting place we always wanted it to be.
