USBG NATIONAL CHARITY FOUNDATION
ADVANCING THE LIFELONG STABILITY AND WELLBEING OF SERVICE INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS
THROUGH EDUCATION & CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES
The USBG National Charity Foundation was sparked into being when a United States Bartenders' Guild member dared to ask “how do I get out of this industry alive, with my health, a little money, and my sanity intact?” Shaken by this candid outlook on our industry, we committed the Foundation’s mission to advance the lifelong stability & wellbeing of service industry professionals through education & charitable activities.
We at the USBG National Charity Foundation strive to achieve our mission through three programmatic pillars: Social Responsibility (Health & Wellness: physical, financial, and mental), Community Service, and Philanthropy.
Our three programatic pillars define the Foundation: Social Responsibility, Community Service, & Philanthropy.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this incredibly generous BEAP grant. I cried when I read your acceptance letter. I have used the funds to pay my physical therapy bills and my emergency room medical bills from my accident. I have attached the receipts. Your kindness will never be forgotten.
I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2016. My treatment required surgery and aggressive chemotherapy, and I struggled to work and take care of my children. Thank you so much, HDRF. You have no idea how much this is going to help my family. I am in tears over your generosity. I’m truly blessed to have you guys! Thank you, Thank you… From my family to yours!
I want to express my immense gratitude for awarding me a BEAP grant. Words cannot articulate my appreciation for the help that, literally, kept a roof over my head and offered salvation during a time of hardship severe enough to sever all sense of hope and certain to send me straight to the streets. I'm so appreciative and truly humbled by your generosity in effort and assistance.
