You can apply to be a volunteer by contacting us at


Whatcom Beer and Wine Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit agency. Our mission is to promote NW wineries, breweries and distilleries while raising funds for underfunded social and human service agencies in our community.
Like most non-profit agencies we appreciate donations to help us fulfill our mission. If you would like to make a contribution there are several options. 


1.  If you would like to make a one-time donation, simply mail a check made payable to Whatcom Beer and Wine Foundation, 1145 Birch Falls Dr. Bellingham WA 98229

2. Are you a Fred Meyer Customer?

This is the easiest option for many people: just go shopping! Make a contribution through the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program! 


“You are now able to link your Rewards Card to your favorite nonprofit by following the link below. Whenever you use your Rewards Card when shopping at Freddy’s, you will be helping that organization earn a donation from Fred Meyer. If you do not have a Rewards Card, you can sign up for one at the Customer Service Desk of any Fred Meyer store.”
Use the following link to link your Rewards Card to benefit Whatcom Beer and Wine Foundation. 


3. Another way to make a contribution is through either the Bellingham Beer and Music Festival or the Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival silent auction donation form. You may also use this form to become an event-specific sponsor.
