Bear Creek Winery takes pride in partnering with local non-profit organizations, especially those supporting the arts, environment and social services that help strengthen our communities. BCW is happy to donate wine (where permitted) & gift shop items to qualified organizations and causes. BCW does not normally make cash donations.
Due to the number and frequency of requests for donations, we have developed donation
guidelines for qualified organizations. The qualified organization must:
- Be a public organization with a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status
- Be located in an area in which our products are distributed and sold
- Not be affiliated with specific political candidates or groups
- Accept full responsibility for complying with local, state and federal regulations, especially those related to the providing, serving, and selling of alcoholic beverages
Each qualified organization can receive no more than one donation per 12-month calendar year.

Approval of donation requests will be confirmed by phone or email. Due to the number of donation requests, we can only honor a budgeted dollar amount of donations each month.
