seed money for brewing equipment

This campaign is for seed money to help us purchase a pilot brewing system from Upstate Craft Beer Co. a local brewery here in South Carolina!

Our mission is to build a non-profit brewery here in Columbia SC that donates net profits to local charities and houses our own local community development efforts; i.e. after school programming for at-risk youth, job training , and / or free medical clinic for children and youth.

We are a group of leaders tired of seeing great organizations struggle to do good because of lack of funds, so our goal is to brew amazing beer and donate our profits to help non-profits continue making lasting impacts in our community!
