As a company, Bath Ales have always "done our bit" for charity, raising money in many different ways. We've held our own fundraising days and we've supported other fundraisers by donating beer for raffles and the like.
The Hare Foundation enables us to combine our fundraising efforts going forward. With the enthusiasm and support of our staff, customers and suppliers we hope to be able to raise much more this way.
Bath Ales is proud to have set up The Hare Foundation: a grant-making charity foundation which relies on the support, generosity and enthusiasm of its staff, suppliers, customers and the local community to raise funds to give to charities.
The Hare Foundation enables us to combine our fundraising efforts. We firmly believe that "together we can achieve more" and that's why we have decided to set up this Foundation – there were already many fund-raising activities being organised by Bath Ales' Staff and now we are inviting everyone to raise money for the Foundation, with the hope and aim that this will create a bigger pot from which to be able to donate.
We aim to raise money by organising a huge variety of activities, such as payroll giving, voluntary contributions through our pubs,individual challenges organised by our staff and collecting at events.
In order to focus where the money goes, the committee has chosen three main themes and we invite local charities that fall in the following broad categories to apply for a grant:
We are currently unable to consider any new applications at this time.
