Why Philanthropy is Important to the Washington Wine Industry
We define philanthropy as giving back to make a positive impact on our local community. Philanthropy is used to strengthen communities and build goodwill. While many communities view wine businesses as a great job creator and money maker, they sometimes overlook the community benefits that they have. As one of the largest industries in Washington State, the wine industry has the ability to make hugely positive impacts on their local communities. Vineyards, wineries, and tasting rooms reach every part of the state. Washington wineries and vineyards are notorious for being environmentally friendly and sustainable; as well as sharing their time, locations, money, and wine in order to support their community’s needs.
How to Follow Northwest Cellars Lead
Northwest Cellars has created leadership within the Washington wine community. Giving back has been the most rewarding part of Northwest Cellar’s business. They have allowed countless charities to continue with their work and help communities all over Washington.
There are many ways to give back to your local communities as a winery or vineyard. Offering up your space for charity events, donating wine, volunteering, and cash donations are just some of the many ways to help.
As a consumer, supporting businesses that support others is a fantastic way to make sure that your money will have a positive place in the future through the philanthropy of the business.
Charitable acts have a ripple effect. Northwest Cellars is a reminder that one good act always leads to another.
