As a national not-for-profit, the inGrained Foundation’s mission is to support grassroots, environmental and social charities in the local areas where funds are donated. By fostering long-term partnerships and responding to urgent situations of need, it aims to create sustained positive change by directing funds to support the community where and when it’s needed.
Since 2013, we have operated a community program under the inGrained banner which has raised and donated more than $630,000 to a long list of not-for-profits, grassroots organisations and individuals in their communities.
By establishing the inGrained Foundation, we’ve created a formal separate entity and have made the commitment to annually donate $1/100L of beer brewed to the not-for-profit going forward.
In addition to the annual donation, we will partner with inGrained for our own events, such as our annual Open Day in Murwillumbah (14 April) and Festival of the Stone (9 June), raising funds for nominated local charities in the area.
The Foundation will continue the great work our team have done towards achieving the vision of, helping grassroots organisations make meaningful progress in the community.
Inspired by the idea of being a village brewery and giving back to the community, the act of supporting the people who support us has always been a part of how we do business. The inGrained Foundation will now manage our donations going forward, together with raising further funds to create social change.
The inGrained Foundation plans to be a sustainable not-for-profit, by investing part of the funds in ethical investments.
The foundation will focus on building a pool of funds so that investment income can form a part of future funding streams. This means the community can rely on the foundation to help out future generations.
The inGrained Foundation will partner with aligned charities to create progress in their communities whilst also being able to provide timely support when the local community needs it most. In the future, a granting program will be established to provide a mechanism for charitable organisations to apply for funding.
