How can you sponsor a Beverage Industry Scholarship?
The program was established in 1988 to assist those families affiliated through full-time employment with the licensed California licensed beverage alcohol industry, fund college expenses for their children or grandchildren. The program is not need based, however funds are applicable only toward the students college expenses.
The program is sponsored by manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and customers of the industry. Since 1988 over fifty companies have been involved as sponsors. Original sponsors are designated as Founder's or Benefactors, and participate in the endowment program.
Sponsor involvement was expanded in 1995 to include companies wishing to sponsor a minimum pledge of $3,000, maximum pledge of $6,000. Titled "annual sponsor: it represents a one-year commitment, renewable annually. Scholarship donations are tax deductible as provided by law. All donated funds are mailed directly to the students college for payment of educational fees.
The program reaches a wide spectrum of students from throughout Califonia whose families are affiliated with all aspects of the California licensed beverage industry. The Foundation is proud to manage and maintain the program in its entirety.
