Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Bell's Brewery Sponsorships and Donations
Sponsored events and donations play a key role within our Bell’s philosophy. Through these events, we are able to not only give back to the communities we sell our beer in, but also get to have a great time with our fans! We are always looking for new opportunities and welcome your suggestions and applications. Please keep in mind that while we would love to be able to participate in everything, we sometimes must respectfully decline.
We do have a few guidelines we follow for all sponsorships and donations, please read through them below before proceeding to our application.
- Requests must be submitted at least 8 weeks prior to the event start date or the date the donation is needed. Any events submitted with less than 8 weeks’ notice will automatically be declined. We want to give every event we are involved in the best chance for success, which means we need time to plan. While 8 weeks is our minimum time requirement, additional time is always appreciated, especially for larger events.
- We do very little traditional advertising, instead we focus our efforts on sponsorships. When we partner with an event or an organization, we like to be involved! That said, if your proposal only involves a logo placement, we will politely decline in favor of events that offer us a chance to interact with our fans.
- We’re an eccentric bunch here at Bell’s and love to be involved with events that reflect your community’s eccentricities, uniqueness and inclusivity.
- We are always happy to consider requests for donations of Bell’s swag for homebrew competitions, fundraisers and events! That said, due to Michigan state law, we are not legally allowed to donate beer to events in any state. We’re sorry, but we legally cannot make any exceptions.
Brooks And Joan Fortune Family
The Brooks and Joan Fortune Foundation (BJFF) primarily provides funds to support education, art, and outreach programs and projects.
Originally incorporated in Indiana, the foundation has had a major impact throughout the country. Recently, it has granted funds to organizations in Florida, New York, Indiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Massachusetts, and Colorado.
Our application and grant process is on-going and welcome you to apply for a grant with the Brooks and Joan Fortune Family Foundation. Funding requests between $1,000 and $10,000 will receive greater consideration.
CSX is proud to support people and organizations that in turn honor those who serve our communities. We offer monetary and in-kind resources to nonprofit organizations advocating for the betterment of our nation’s military members or community first responders, and have additional resources available to support other community efforts.
In Kind Donations
Intermodal Transportation Services
Intermodal transportation services provide applicable organizations with intermodal equipment and rail service throughout the CSX rail network, and afford these organizations an opportunity to reduce or eliminate their transportation spending.
Ideally, intermodal moves work best when freight is moving 500 miles or more. However, the in-kind moves program requires only that freight have an origin and destination within a combined 250 miles’ distance to a CSX intermodal facility.
CSX’s door-to-door product is an ideal solution for the in-kind moves program, as our trained team will pick up your freight at its origin and transport it to a terminal to be placed on an intermodal train. Then, we will pick up your freight at the destination terminal and deliver it directly to its endpoint. The door-to-door network provides service across the Eastern United States with its large nationwide network and trucking capability.
CSX will also work with you to determine the type of equipment that is an ideal fit to transport your freight. CSX has a large fleet of rail-owned containers, as well as an expansive network of channel partners that can provide equipment to fit your needs.
Railroad Equipment and Materials
CSX occasionally donates materials, supplies and used railroad equipment based on availability. The online in-kind application can be used to request the donation of railroad-related items, including retired rail cars when available. Please note that rail, rail ties and spikes are not available for donation or purchase. Applicants will be contacted if the requested item becomes available within 90 days of their online submittal. At that time, arrangements will be made to transfer possession of the requested item. All applicants will be asked to re-submit their application at a later date if the requested item does not become available within the 90-day period.
Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation
NOTE: Grant applications will be accepted online during two annual grant cycles, one in the spring and one in the fall.
Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation

- Human needs grants that support increased food security, housing and shelter, and access to basic medical and health care.
- Environmental stewardship grants to protect natural resources and help non-profit organizations make efficient use of energy.
- Education grants to develop the capacity of the future workforce, especially in STEM and energy fields.
- Community vitality grants to foster an appreciation of diversity, revitalize neighborhoods and ensure a vibrant community life through support of cultural endeavors.
- Grant requests are reviewed periodically throughout the year and responses are generally sent within 90 days.
- In general, Fluor does not accept unsolicited grants. We encourage you to speak to the Community Affairs representative at the Fluor office or project site in your community to discuss opportunities for engagement.
- If your organization is located outside of the U.S. or Canada, please contact the appropriate international community relations representative for application instructions.
Fluor Has a Tradition of Community Service
While Fluor’s core business centers on designing, constructing and maintaining complex and challenging capital projects, Fluor and our employees also help to build a better world by giving back to the communities where we live and work around the globe.
Fluor focuses its giving and volunteering efforts on four priority areas:
- Economic development
- Public health and critical human needs
Areas of Focus
Fluor believes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education is a foundation for student success. We invest in programs that inspire and prepare students to excel in STEM disciplines and are committed to developing the next generation workforce, improving teacher effectiveness with an emphasis on STEM student proficiency and persistence and cultivating youth leadership skills.
Fluor invests in higher education and university programs, as well as those benefiting primary and secondary schools. Last year, Fluor and our employees provided more than 2 million hours of STEM training and enrichment to 200,000 K-12 students and teachers by investing in school-based curricular enhancements, outreach, high quality out-of-school time activities and professional development. Examples include Roper Mountain Science Center in Greenville, South Carolina, and Muntinlupa Science High School in the Philippines. Through our Global University Sponsorship Program, Fluor sponsors annual grants and scholarships at selected universities with a focus on engineering, construction and business programs to prepare students for tomorrow’s global and technical workforce.Economic Development
At Fluor, we believe if communities thrive, so do their businesses and residents. The stability of a community is greatly affected by strategies and programs that strengthen society and encourage lasting change. Fluor offices and project sites are often in developing countries and rural areas where we have an opportunity to create progress and energize economies. Through our projects and community engagement, we strive to leave communities better than when we arrived.
Through partnerships with organizations such as Homes of Hope, Workshops for Warriors and several regional technical schools, we support initiatives that improve job readiness, help individuals acquire gainful employment and assist in career advancement. Last year, Fluor enabled nearly 240,000 hours of life skill enrichment and job training to more than 9,400 individuals and helped build or refurbish more than 100 homes and community-serving facilities around the globe.
As an engineering and construction services provider, Fluor is conscious of our impact on the environment and the need to ensure its preservation for generations to come. In addition to the company’s Net Zero 2023 commitment, we also focus a portion of our giving and volunteerism on programs that can restore, reclaim and protect the natural world in communities where we live and work.
Last year, Fluor and our employees planted more than 24,000 trees, removed more than 1,600 tons of litter and delivered environmental education programming to almost 20,000 individuals. We continue to work with a variety of stakeholders to explore environmental issues, solve problems and take strategic actions to sustainably improve our environment.
Public Health and Critical Human Needs
As a global company working in both developed and underdeveloped countries, we recognize how important it is to ensure that people have access to healthcare and critical human needs. Fluor provides a variety of funding and other supports for people in urgent need in our communities across the globe.
By participating in food programs and partnering with meal service delivery organizations, Fluor and our employees provided 850,000 meals to those who were hungry. In addition, community programs such as health care check-ups for the disadvantaged, disaster relief for those in crisis and emergency shelter for the domestically abused are some of the preventative and emergency services that were provided to thousands of individuals as a result of Fluor and our employees’ investments.
Publix Super Markets Charities Inc
Publix Super Markets Charities supports various types of nonprofit organizations throughout the Southeast with a primary focus on helping youth, promoting education, alleviating hunger, and reducing homelessness.
All other nonprofit program and sponsorship requests may be submitted throughout the year. Allow about eight weeks for review and processing.

Cross-Sector Impact Grants
South Arts recognizes that as our communities continue to change, the arts play an incomparable role in addressing many of our communal and individual challenges and strengths. Further, the value of partnership and working together across sectors brings new opportunities, increased effectiveness, and greater depth to our collective work. Through this program, South Arts seeks to provide significant support to projects developed by partners that harness the power of “Arts & …”.
South Arts is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. Cross-Sector Impact Grants are open to all art forms, for partnership projects taking place in South Arts’ nine-state region. Eligible projects will continue to feature “Arts & …”, for example, arts and the military, arts and equity, arts and aging, arts and community revitalization. Applicants may be organizations, units of government, higher educational institutions, or artists.
For applicants new to this program that did not receive a Cross-Sector Impact Grant in FY20, FY21 or FY22, matching grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded. For these projects, South Arts encourages applications for new projects. However, projects that deepen and expand existing partnerships may also apply. For applicants/projects that did receive funding through this program in FY20, FY21, or FY22 matching grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded in order to continue or advance the project. South Arts anticipates that this grant program will be highly competitive and that successful applications will be fully funded.
South Arts’ mission is advancing Southern vitality through the arts. This program addresses two of South Arts’ strategic goals:
- Connect artists and arts professionals in the South to resources that will increase opportunities for success within and outside the region

South Arts welcomes proposals from partnering entities working together on a project that addresses arts and community impact through cross-sector partnership.
