The Oregon Wine Brotherhood's Charitable Program Description:
A major cornerstone of the Oregon Wine Brotherhood (OWB) is to provide scholarship funding for students pursuing degrees in wine studies programs and to provide funds to organizations for programs/special projects which support the Oregon wine industry. For over 20 years OWB has provided more than $250,000 in student scholarships through the Oregon Community Foundation (OCF).
In addition to scholarship funding, the OWB charitable program has provided funds for wine-related programs at approved institutions such as Linfield University, Oregon State University and Chemeketa Community College.
In 2022, OWB expanded the charitable program to include funding for organizations and programs that provide direct benefits to Oregon vineyard and winery employees and their families.
Each year (late summer/early fall), a Barrel Tasting event is held at a member winery to celebrate the harvest and most recent vintage of the wines of our region. A highlight of the day is a silent auction of wonderful wines, trips and dinners. Additional support comes from individual donations made by members of the brotherhood and their guests.
We are excited about the ability to impact students involved in wine studies and, through the continued support of our membership, we look forward to making a difference and contributing to the growth of the wine industry.
