The Raise A Glass FoundationTM is a registered NY 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to help save and improve the lives of adults and children around the world. We accomplish our mission by collecting and donating to deserving charities a valuable asset – thousands of award-winning bottles of wine, beer and spirits – which they use in their fundraising galas, dinners, auctions and other events.

It would be very difficult if not impossible for a single charity to solicit such a collection of award-winning bottles from producers around the world. We remove that barrier by hosting truly international competitions – with entries and professional judges from over 25 countries. At the end of the competitions, all of the unopened bottles (thousands!) are categorized and donated to deserving charities for their fundraising events.

If you have a question or would like to speak with someone in our Foundation, please call 888-85RAISE (888-857-2473).
