The Little Grape That Could is a non-profit dedicated to helping other charities. When you register with us, purchasers of our wine can tell us to send the profits we get from their purchase directly to your organization. That is, every single bottle of wine we sell is a chance for your organization to receive a donation. And, since our wine is pretty darn great (see the critics’ reviews), your organization will look pretty darn great by partnering up with us.
How it works
$1 is donated to charity for every bottle of wine we sell. The specific charity that receives the dollar is chosen by the purchaser of the bottle when they make a selection from the charities listed on our website. The charities then receive the funds every six months when we tally up all the selections made.
Funds that purchasers have not been specifically directed to a charity will be donated to our registered charities. The proportion of each charity’s donation will be dictated by the amount of times they were selected by purchasers who made the effort to choose one. We estimate that only 10% of purchasers will direct us to make a donation to a specific charity, which means that each selection will likely lead to the allocation of several more dollars to the charity chosen.
How do I get my charity involved?
Step One – Register
Please submit the form below. Once your registration is approved, purchasers can begin selecting your charity to receive proceeds from sales of our wine.
We try to make approval decisions as soon as possible, but decisions are usually made about every two months. The Little Grape is a small, all-volunteer charity and we work hard to try to get charities on board, but it can take some time for us to do our due diligence to make sure a charity meets our criteria. Unfortunately because of the volume of applications we cannot respond to requests about the status of an application (as much as we would love to). We will contact you when we have made a decision about your charity. Until then, we really appreciate your patience!
Please click here to see the guidelines we use to select charities. Please read through it first to see if you would be a good fit before signing up. Please also do not sign up if you are not absolutely certain your organization wants to or is capable of participating in the program.
Step Two – Spread the Word
Tell everyone (that is of legal drinking age) about our lovely wine! The more wine we sell, the more money will go to worthy causes. Word of mouth, social media, and serving the wine at your events are all great ways to spread the word. Make sure you encourage your supporters to go online and select your organization, even if they have to wait to sober up first. As we said earlier, not all purchasers will make a selection, so those that do will likely wind up directing the flow of several dollars per purchase.
Please be sure to enter all information accurately and completely. Do not use abbreviations or acronyms in your legal name. Please also ensure that you understand how our donations work. If you have any question, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
