Over the past six years, and with your help, Bloktoberfest has been able to have a lasting impact on the South of South Neighborhood and Philadelphia as a whole by raising over $180,000 in beer proceeds to various charitable causes.

In 2016 Bloktoberfest granted almost $40,000 to area nonprofits including FOCA, SCP, and SOSNA, among others for projects including education, greening, and the arts. In 2017 will continuing this tradition of service by committing our beer proceeds to initiatives that address education, green space, public safety and community development for the neighborhood that so generously hosts our festival. Organizations with projects that address these issues are encouraged to apply for grant funding from Bloktoberfest.

We’re proud to run an event that both celebrates and gives back to the community. We think you’ll agree that it makes the beer taste even better.

The intent application for 2017 will be posted in July. Please check back then to express your organization’s interest in being invited to the post-event granting process.
