About the cause
All proceeds from the Knoxville Brewers' Jam benefit Community Shares, a local nonprofit that supports social, economic, and environmental justice. Community Shares raises capacity, awareness, and funds for local grassroots organizations working on the root causes of these issues. The nonprofit organization is made up of 36 nonprofit member groups that are working for long-term solutions to many issues in Tennessee today including poverty, inequality, pollution, unemployment, and access to healthcare and education. Through workplace fundraising, Community Shares is able to generate the reliable donations and awareness these local nonprofits need to grow.
