It’s Year three of the Chapter Fundraising Initiative for the Bartender Emergency Assistance Program! The goal of this initiative is to encourage USBG Chapters, their leadership, and members, to contribute at least $500 per Chapter to the Bartender Emergency Assistance Program (BEAP) by September 30, 2023.

The funds raised during this initiative will help fellow bartenders in need. We are assisting about 15 bartenders per month right now, and with the industry’s changing landscape, we need your support more than ever!

To Find Out More & Donate


NEW THIS YEAR: To thank you for your support, after the campaign, we will award our new USBG Foundation pins to the USBG Chapter that raises the most money for the BEAP!

Last year we had eight (8) USBG Chapters reach that $500 goal, and this year we are hoping for even more participation!

There are several different ways to donate:

  • Donate from your Chapter’s existing funds
  • Email or ask your members at your next meeting to make a small donation Ask a sponsor to donate on behalf of your Chapter
  • Hold a fundraiser and donate the proceeds toward your Chapter’s totals

We hope you and your USBG Chapter join us in helping the BEAP assist your fellow bar industry colleagues facing emergency hardships. If you would like to donate in the name of your USBG Chapter and have that donation count towards your $500 total, please visit www.usbgfoundation.org/usbg-chapter-fundraising.
