Ninkasi Donates $50,000 to McKenzie River TrustAug 14, 2017 Comments (1)
Last Friday, we hosted a Kegs for McKenzie Celebration where we honored McKenzie River Trust with a $50,000 donation!
Why? That's easy. We love clean water (and our community!).
Kicking off in April, we launched our Kegs for McKenzie program. Through this campaign, we pledged $20 of every Ninkasi keg sold in Oregon to McKenzie River Trust and its McKenzie Homewaters Campaign, April through June. Also in April, McKenzie River Trust, a nonprofit working to help people protect and care for the lands and rivers they cherish in western Oregon, seized an opportunity to conserve two miles of riverfront called Finn Rock Reach. The Trust began its McKenzie Homewaters Campaign to raise $6 million to fund initiatives to protect, conserve and restore this land and other McKenzie acreage.
We are happy to say we reached our $50,000 Kegs for McKenzie goal. Last Friday members of McKenzie River Trust joined us on the patio for an official donation presentation led by our co-founder, Jamie Floyd, and Beer is Love program manager, Emilie Hartvig.
