Stone's Charity Fundraisers


Since the Stone Brewing Co. was founded in 1996, we are proud to have contributed over $2 million to charitable and community non-profit organizations. We are dedicated to supporting our community and promoting a culture of social responsibility, collaboration and involvement.

In addition to the Stone Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival, our largest yearly charitable event which has raised more than $1,000,000 over the years ($240,000 donated in 2011 alone), we make in-kind beer donations exceeding $250,000 in value to more than 300 charitable fundraisers annually.

We focus our philanthropic efforts primarily on local groups so that our money goes back to the community where we live and work. In addition to direct donations, we also host numerous fundraisers at our restaurant, and provide meeting space for local environmental, social, and community groups. These non-profit groups that we help support are greatly varied in scope, each raising money for entirely different causes and programs. And while we are thrilled that we can be part of their fundraising endeavors, it should be noted that as a company, we are politically and religiously neutral, and these donations do not serve as an endorsement of any group's ethos or as a preference of one worldview over another.

For a sample list of organizations we've donated to, click here. And if you represent a legit non-profit charitable organization, you have your California ABC licensing in order, and are hosting a charity event in the near future, you can request a donation right here! Chances are we'll say yes!

Through our anniversary celebrations, hair dyeing events and so many other hair-brained schemes - we've raised a tidy sum for important charities over the years. Having a positive impact on the craft brewing industry and the community is important to us, but we couldn't do either without your help. On behalf of the charities and Stone, thanks for your support! This page has been set up to let you know about our current fundraisers and a look back at where we've been.
