VENN CHARITABLE GIVING
Here at Venn, we’re all about building community, enriching the lives of our friends, and getting involved in causes that make our neighborhood a better place to live, work, and enjoy life (and beer!). Below are the causes and some example initiatives that are important to us.
THE ENVIRONMENT/MINNESOTA WATERWAYS: Bike trails, Mississippi River clean-up
OUR LOCAL NEIGHBORHOOD: Organizations that focus on building up and positively impacting the community within about 3 miles of Venn.
THE BEER COMMUNITY: Homebrew competitions, craft beer education, BJCP/Cicerone education.
ANIMAL WELFARE: Local animal rescue organizations.
