GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

At LTD we have a motto - "We will always give back to the wonderful world that allows us to experience the greatness of beer". If you have an awesome cause, please let us know at Donations@ltdbrewing.com. We can't promise we can help everyone out (501c organizations only, please), but we will do our best!


Here are some great examples of causes we have helped and continue to give back to this wonderful world (we can't show them all).

CHOICE, Inc. 

http://www.choicejobs.org/​​​​​​​

Something near and dear to LTD's heart is helping people with intellectual disabilities. We have partnered up with Choice, Inc. to give jobs to people that otherwise would not have the opportunity to work. The Choice cleaning crew comes out 5 days a week, and keeps the taproom looking spotless!  LTD also hosts and donates beer to the Choice annual fundraiser called, "Brew for Choice" raising over $7,000 so far! 

Underdog Rescue MN 

http://underdogrescuemn.com/

We have a slogan here @ LTD Brewing... "I just want to drink beer and rescue dogs". Something near and dear to LTD's heart is helping the true "Underdog". That is why we partnered with Underdog Rescue, MN to host a fundraiser at LTD, donate items to a silent auction to help raise money, host multiple adoption events and donate beer to the big annual fundraiser for Underdog.  We love just drinking beer and rescuing dogs!

Junior Achievement of Upper Midwest. Inc.  

https://www.jaum.org/

Junior Achievement offers financial literacy, college and career readiness, and entrepreneurship education to K-12 students in Minnesota, North Dakota and western Wisconsin. We believe strongly in supporting students success so we teamed up with Junior Achievement and Cargill for the JA Corporate Challenge to be the beverage sponsor donating kegs of beer and rootbeer for everyone to enjoy while raising funds. 

Team Tucker: Play. Laugh. Love  

http://playlaughlove.org/

This nonprofit was founded after Tucker Helstrom, a local Hopkins Hockey player, lost his battle with a rare bone cancer in 2016. Their goal is simple - provide children in Hopkins, St. Louis Park, Edina, St. Michael and beyond, the opportunity appreciate their health and play and enjoy hockey, the game they love. We hosted a #givebacktuesday - donating 20% of our revenue to the cause along with donating growler fills/certificates to the Team Tuckers Hockey Explosion silent auction to help raise more funds for the cause. Kids should never have to go through what Tucker did, let's help other children in the area enjoy the sport he loved: hockey! 

Fundraisers are one of the best ways for LTD to help organizations with a good cause. It is hard to beat the cause that Reach for resources strives for - "support individuals with disabilities and mental illness to reach their full potential." LTD hosts the Reach for Resources annual summer gala and is proud to help them continue their great work.

Arthritis Foundation

http://www.arthritis.org/

The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. Leading the fight for the arthritis community, the Arthritis Foundation helps conquer everyday battles through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections. Our friend Shawn was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis when he was 29 and relied heavily on the foundations support. As a result, we conducted a fundraiser as part of #givebacktuesday and donated 20% of our sales for the day to the Arthritis Foundation!

We hosted a #GiveBackTuesday where we donated 20% of the sales for the day to the pack along with running a "Grown-Up Pinewood Derby" to raise funds by providing a nostalgic experience for adults to compete once again in pinewood derby racing!

The mission of Perspectives is one be believe in strongly - Breaking Cycles for At-Risk Families and Children for Total Family Recovery. So we teamed up together and hosted a #GiveBackTuesday where we donated 20% of the sales for the day to Perspectives along with hosting a trivia Night where benefits go directly to perspectives.

Three Rivers Park District https://www.threeriversparks.org/​​​​​​​

We love parks at LTD Brewing. They are one of the best places for people to relax and enjoy wildlife. That's why we support the mission of Three Rivers Park District - promote environmental stewardship through recreation and education in a natural resources-based park system. We donated all of the beer to "Party in the Prairie," an event to help raise money for the Three Rivers Park District. 


American Cancer Society 

https://www.cancer.org/

If we had a list of things that we hate on this world, cancer would be up there at the top, and we at LTD believe in the American Cancer Society's Mission - "Free the world from cancer. Until we do, we'll be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention. All so you can live longer — and better."


As part of #givebacktuesday, we donated 20% of our revenue for the entire day to the cause and every year they host a gala to help raise funds for the Hope Lodge of Downtown Minneapolis, a cost-free home away from home for cancer patients across the state who are receiving treatment at the University of Minnesota. We were able to donate multiple growlers with free fills at the taproom for the silent auction, help us both rid the world of cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society!

We all know health care is important, and we at LTD believe everyone should have great options for every specialty healthcare option that you might need. The Phillips Eye Institute is the only hospital in the region that specializes in eye surgery and other eye treatments; charitable gifts make it possible to invest in critical technology for diagnosing and treating eye conditions. Donations also support Phillips Eye Institute’s extensive commitment to community service, including the early identification and treatment of vision problems in school children, and improving access to eye care across the region.

 

As part of their annual fundraiser called, "Urban Cocktail Party", we were able to donate multiple growlers with free fills at the taproom for the silent auction. Learn more at -

The vision of TreeHouse is to reach every at-risk teen so they are loved, feel hope and realize life transformation. To accomplish this vision we seek to fulfill our mission to bring living hope to hurting youth and families leading to life transformation.


We love to support the TreeHouse vision so we help out by donating kegs of beer to "Rockin' with TreeHouse", a fundraiser to support the continued efforts and mission.

In honor of Memorial Day, we @ LTD Brewing teamed up with the Hopkins VFW Post #425 to raise money for veterans\. We moved #givebacktuesday in order to donate 20% of all revenue for the day to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Assistance Programs. We believe in supporting those who have fought and remind us that freedom isn't free.

Millions of people around the world live with type 1 diabetes (T1D), a life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults. There is no way to prevent it, and at present, no cure. JDRF works every day to change this by amassing grassroots support, deep scientific knowledge and strong industry and academic partnerships to fund research. LTD Brewing donates beer to help fundraise for the cause

ICA is a local non-profit food shelf helping neighbors in need. We asked how can we help?

Every year St. Gabriel hosts an Oktoberfest party to help raise funds, every year we donate our kegs and pouring station to help out. Come out and join the fun!

Hopkins Fire and Police

Both police and firefighters put their lives on the line every day to help keep everyone in their community safe. Well, at LTD we believe this deserves a lot of thanks, so we donate as much as possible - we donated 20% of sale on two seperate days for the organizations and put together an annual appreciation night hosting both the firefighters and police officers to relax and drink some beer (on the house). Cheers to the people that help protect and save lives!

Walk to end Alzheimer's

http://www.alz.org/

Some of you may know that Jeremy's father-in-law has been diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer's, the same disease that took his mother at 62. While it is a terrifying disease as he just turned 59, we know that we can help by raising awareness and funds.

A few Alzheimer's facts: over 5 million people are currently suffering from the disease. It kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Since 2000, deaths from heart disease decreased by 14% while deaths from Alzheimer's increased 89%.

LTD Brewing donated 20% of the revenue for a day to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s along with hosting a bingo night to raise additional funds.

For those of you that want to join the fight beyond today, please join the team to walk or donate further here

From Jeremy's family - thank you for your love and support! Our entire family is blessed with the absolute best community around us. So much love to you all!
