Doing Good Differently.

FINNEGANS Community Fund

The FINNEGANS Community Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to alleviate hunger through sustainable, scalable and innovative methods and partnerships and to serve as a catalyst for social entrepreneurs to advance charitable purposes.

We believe that everyone should have access to nutritional foods, and that in order to create lasting change we need to focus on the systems that produce or grow these foods and innovate on how people are able to access them.

We also believe that entrepreneurs play a key role in making our world a better place. Social entrepreneurs can create critical impact for under-served communities and develop innovative solutions to systemic issues.

Alleviating Hunger

To date, the FINNEGANS Community Fund has been a part of raising more than $2 million (and counting) of impact, most recently donating to fund local produce for local food shelves, through our food bank partners.

We work closely with regional food bank partners to ensure our donations make the desired impact. Our collaborations are key to our success and secure produce for food shelves in each state where FINNEGANS beer is sold.

We’re appreciative of the support we get FINNEGANS Brew Co. from beer sales and taproom events, and we are proud to put these funds to work supporting local produce for local food shelves. This includes support to operate the Reverse Food Truck, ongoing food drives at events and the FINNEGANS Brewery & Taproom, and more.
