Beverage Partners

Folsom Street Events raises funds to support Bay Area-based and national charities. In 2017, we donated over $322,000 to San Francisco-based, local, and national charities. Since Folsom Street Events first began, the organization has donated nearly $6 million.

FSE maintains several grant-making categories: Major Beneficiary, Supporting Beneficiary and Beverage Partner.

The Beverage Partners earn grants to support their work in areas such as Health, Human Services, The Arts, Social Justice, Education, LGBT interests and Social groups. Each Beneficiary is carefully selected because of the profound difference they make in our communities, and we are proud to partner with them.

To apply to be a Beverage Partner you must be a 501(c)3 organization. We encourage all interested and eligible organizations to submit a Beverage Partner application for Up Your Alley and/or Folsom Street Fair. Please note that there are 2 separate Beverage Partner applications—one for each fair. You do not need to be invited to apply.

The primary responsibility of each Beverage Parter is to staff and manage a beverage booth (Beer, Liquor, or Juice) throughout the fair day. In return, the organization will receive funding for an approved purpose, as described in the application. You will find more detail within the applications.
