Founded in 2019 when his “Pops” was diagnosed with prostate cancer,  Brandon Hunt donated his bourbon collection to start the organization. In one year’s time, Bourbon Charity has enlisted 2,000+ supporters whose passion for combining charity with bourbon to #drinkforachange has raised more than $200,000 for a variety of charitable causes, including: Prostate Cancer Foundation, Children’s Tumor Foundation, Fisher House Foundation, Dare to Care, and charity: water. All donations are tax deductible.

“I’ve always felt the desire to give back and to help others, especially in light of my Pops’ diagnosis,” said Brandon Hunt, Founder, Bourbon Charity. “During these challenging and uncertain times as the hospitality industry struggles, our passionate and like-minded bourbon community is dedicated to making a difference.”

The online fundraising model has served the organization well, especially given the current state of the world and social distancing. In addition to barrel picks, Bourbon Charity hosts several online fundraising events throughout the year, featuring rare and allocated whiskey, such as Pappy Van Winkle, Eagle Rare, Weller, Sazerac, George T. Stagg and more.

The organization’s next big event is The Ultimate Bourbon Giveaway on Father’s Day. Tickets are now available online through June 18, 2020 in the following denominations: $10 (25 tickets), $25 (150 tickets), or $50 (500 tickets). Each ticket affords participants a chance to win any giveaway. The drawing will take place on Father’s Day, June 21, 2020.

Another way to get involved with the organization is to join the Bourbon Hood, a passionate community of monthly givers that help to ensure that every public dollar donated in the organization’s online fundraisers help the supported charities. Bourbon Hood members receive ticket entries in each fundraiser as well as exclusive merchandise and discounts. For more information, visit
